United Soccer to host Concussion Awareness Seminar

Milford United Soccer Club (MUSC) will be sponsoring a Concussion Awareness Seminar on Thursday, Oct. 17 in the Parsons Auditorium at 7 p.m.

The Milford sports community and all of its members are invited to attend.

With the advancements in training, education, detection and treatment, MUSC believes it will be beneficial to share this information with as many people as possible to better protect our athletes and more importantly our children.

The seminar will be run by Linda Fischer from the Connecticut Interscholastic Athletic Association’s Coaching Education Dept. and will be approximately two hours in length.

The program is designed to educate parents, coaches and players on the recognition and treatment of concussions and concussion like symptoms.

There is no cost to attend.
