Concussion center logo Welcome to the MomsTeam concussion safety center! We first began providing comprehensive concussion safety information to youth sports parents, coaches and athletic trainers in 2000.  Since the beginning we have been considered the "pioneer" in concussion safety education.

Thirteen years later, not only sports parents but medical professionals around the world turn to us for concussion information, and the MomsTeam Concussion Safety Center has grown to be the largest, most comprehensive library of concussion safety information on the Internet.  Our team of sports concussion experts, editors, writers, researchers, and videographers are constantly adding to and updating a content catalog of more than four hundred articles and videos to reflect the enormous advances that have occurred in the 2000's in concussion identification, evaluation, and management.

The Smartest Team documentary DVD cover

I finally had the opportunity to watch The Smartest Team  and thought it was terrific. I want to commend you and your team on a job well done.  It is informative, insightful and important information for anyone in youth and high school sports to watch."  ~~ Scott Hallenbeck, Executive Director, USA Football 


Here you will find articles about how innovative new smart phone applications and tests are being used to identify possible concussion for early assessment on the sports sideline to reports on the latest research about the long-term effects of concussion on an athlete's cognitive function, from articles on the new state concussion safety laws to advice on the academic accomodations concussed student-athletes often need when they return to the classroom.

MomsTeam Health and Safety editors and writers, along with our experts, including Dr. William P. Meehan, III, Director of the Sports Concussion Center at Boston Children's Hospital, and Rosemarie Scolaro Moser, Ph.D., one of the leading sports concussion neuropsychologists in the country and Director of the Sports Concussion Center of New Jersey, continue to provide advice, support, articles, videos and blogs on the latest in concussion management and the dangers of traumatic brain injury.

Our mission now, as it was in 2000, is to do everything we can to minimize the short- and long-term risks that concussions, if not properly managed, pose to athlete, and to provide objective and practical concussion information to parents, coaches, and athletic trainers  that reflects the latest consensus of medical experts and advances in research and technology, all in the direct, concise, easy-to-read, practical format that has always been MomsTeam's hallmark.
