TUAC is a simple speech designed to be given from a team leader before each season. The core message: teammates have a responsibility to speak up to a team leader if they notice concussion signs in a teammate.
USA Hockey's Team Up Against Concussions Week is scheduled for October 23-27, 2023. Throughout the week, USA Hockey will share videos of Team USA players from all over the country giving the TUAC speech to their teams.
The TUAC speech should come from a designated player on the team, known as a Concussion Legacy Captain.
We're a team, and teammates look out for each other. A teammate with a concussion needs your help. I expect you to SPEAK UP to me, a coach, or an athletic trainer if you think a teammate has a concussion.
Spread The Word
Throughout the week, players, coaches, and team administrators are encouraged to post a video of their team hearing the speech on social media using the #TeamUpAgainstConcussions.
