KAAP Featured Research
A study at the University of Delaware is focused on teaching proper heading technique – along with neck and torso strengthening – to youth soccer players with the goal of decreasing risk of concussions. Tom Kaminski, director of Athletic Training education at UD, and Ph.D. student Victoria Wahlquist check on players throughout the season at practices and games to see how much they’re heading the ball and how heading is being coached.
The Brain Injury Association of Delaware offers grants through BrainStrong, a program to support the prevention of youth concussions. $2,500 in grant funds have enabled UD researchers to do significant pilot projects that are producing useful data for larger study.
