Athletic director Sue Cabot spoke on the partnership with Headway Foundation: “As an athletic department we look to be leaders in the care and safety of our athletes and athletic program and embracing the Headway Foundations platform to change the culture around concussions in sports supports what we do. Our Girls Hockey program has been working with them for a few years now and when Coach Leyden passed the information on to me, it was a no brainer to involve all of our winter teams. Our coaches and athletes took time out of practices to learn and discuss the New Tough initiatives. Our athletes know the symptoms of concussions; the importance to self-reporting; and are committed to playing the game safely. We look forward to continuing these conversations each season and taking part to support Concussions month annually.”
