The purpose of this study was to explore coaches and athletes understanding of concussions and comparing what coaches and athletes themselves say about concussions. This study involved the use of surveys designed specifically towards athletes and coaches about the awareness, diagnosis and educational background of concussions. Research in this area should continue as there is very little information available regarding educational implications of coaches and athletes about concussions.
