FOCUS IN TRAINING TO FOCUS IN GAMES

CLASSICS EAGLES WEEKEND RECAP
By Tony Earp, CE DIRECTOR
When watching a game, I often wonder what players are thinking when the ball is coming towards them or upon receiving the ball. Are they nervous? Are they just excited to get to touch the ball and be part of the play? But most importantly, I am curious about what they plan to do with the ball and why. Although the thought process in making a decision with the ball has to happen in a fraction of a second, and in reality, becomes more of an instinctive reaction over time, there are things that should be considered by the player before making a decision.

The following is what I like players to consider when gaining possession of the ball. As one option is determined unavailable, the player should move to the next option. Too often, players do not consider some of these and opportunities to score or move the ball forward are lost, or possession is lost because they try something that is not available. Read more!

CONCUSSIONS:
A FACT SHEET FOR PARENTS AND ATHLETES

Considering the high amount of player-to-player contact, not to mention heading, it’s no surprise concussions are one of the most common injuries soccer players experience. Orthopedic ONE has a comprehensive concussion protocol in place that is utilized by our athletic trainers and sports therapists to safely guide athletes as they return to play. This protocol is used collaboratively with the treatment advice of your physician. 
  
What is a Concussion?
 
A concussion is a traumatic brain injury (TBI) that interrupts normal brain function. Concussions occur when there is a direct or indirect force to the head and often do not occur with a loss of consciousness. These injuries can lead to a wide range of issues, including academic difficulty, loss of playing time, and in severe cases, permanent brain damage or retirement from athletic play. 
 
What If I Suspect My Child Has a Concussion? 
 
We recommend connecting with our team following any head injury or trauma that elicits symptoms such as headache, dizziness, nausea, balance difficulties, or confusion. You can reach a member of Orthopedic ONE’s Sports Medicine Team via our Sports Medicine Hotline or by visiting our athletic trainers onsite during their designated clinic hours. 
 
The team at Orthopedic ONE will set up a time to evaluate and promptly address a suspected or diagnosed concussion, as well as help track and monitor symptoms. We will also coordinate and facilitate a step-by-step progression back to athletic activities. The protocol starts with a period of complete rest from athletic activities (running, jumping, sports, etc.) as well as initial rest or modifications for screen time, use of electronic devices as well as learning, reading, and continued concentration.  
 
We recommend that concussed athletes stay home from school until they are symptom-free. The team at Orthopedic ONE can formulate a return to learn plan to help determine when your athlete can safely return to the classroom. 
 
Medical clearance is required to return to soccer training and gameplay. This can be achieved by collaborating with our staff and your physician to create a return to play plan. 
 
Your dedicated ATs are trained in the evaluation and management of concussions and concussion-related symptoms. The Orthopedic ONE website also has additional information on concussions, such as signs and symptoms, steps to take after a concussion diagnosis, and what to do if symptoms worsen.
