Abstract/Description:
In 2012, the amount of reported concussions doubled in the past ten years to 3.8 million. Concussions and head-related injuries caused by contact sports can lead to long term traumatic brain injuries. With the increasing presence of these injuries, the National Football League and the National Hockey League have implemented extensive concussion protocols. This questions the underlying uncertainty of the future of contact sports. Our project addresses the question of hypothetically, if you had children, knowing what we know today about concussions/head related injuries, would you allow them to play contact sports. The decision to allow your child to play contact sports was motivated by the gender and age gap. The different levels of education had a statistically significant impact on the knowledge surrounding the current professional football and hockey concussion protocols.
