The California Concussion Coalition is a network of local and national organizations united under a common mission to work in partnership to provide student athletes in the community with the best-in-class resources available to protect them from concussions in sports. The Coalition will accomplish this mission through leveraging the existing programs of Coalition members focused on prevention, education, assessment, management, and research.
