GHSA Supports 'Team Up Speak Up' Week

The GHSA is joining the NFHS in supporting Team Up Speak Up, a national concussion education initiative from the Concussion Legacy Foundation to help improve concussion culture and reporting at the youth and high school level.

Team Up Speak Up asks coaches to give a short, one-minute speech to their team that makes 3 simple points:

  1. We’re a team. We look out for each other.

  2. A teammate with a concussion is a teammate that needs your help.

  3. It is your responsibility to Speak Up to a team leader if you think a teammate has a concussion.

National Team Up Speak Up Week is September 8-14. It’s important that athletes, especially youth athletes, hear the Team Up Speak Up message at the beginning of every season to establish a positive concussion culture.

Participating is as easy as 1-2-3, and is detailed in the attachedHow to Participate” illustrated guide:

  1. Take the Pledge for your organization, school, or team at It takes fewer than 2 minutes.

  2. Give the Speech or make sure this speech is given to the teams you care about during September 8-14.

  3. Spread the Word by posting a video of your speech on social media using #TeamUpSpeakUp. Participants are entered to win our Grand Prize for the best video!
