>>Great practice today, guys. Now part of getting ready
for our season is making sure that everyone is aware the
chance of getting a concussion and what you can do
to protect yourself. Parents, the factsheet that I
just gave you has information to help you talk to your
child about concussion, learn how to spot a concussion,
and what you should do if you think your child
might have a concussion.>>Coach, what is a concussion?>>I’m glad you asked. If you fall or get a hit to
your head or body while playing, you may hurt your brain. If this happens, you might
have a brain injury called a concussion. CDC made a mobile game
app called Rocket Blades to help kids learn
all about concussion. Would you like to try it?>>Sure.>>[Background Music] Rocket
Blades was developed as a fun, kid friendly way to teach you
key points about concussion.>>Cool!>>Including finding
symptoms, telling a grownup if you hurt your head,
and the importance of seeing a doctor
before returning to play.>>Whoa!>>Kids play the game by
helping a team of players skate through six levels of the
Rocket Blades championship.>>Awesome!>>The goal is to
keep the players safe by avoiding obstacles.>>Watch out!>>If a player gets
a concussion, they should tell a
grownup, sit out of play, and get checked out by a doctor.>>I think this player needs
to sit out to get better.>>Parents, this is a great tool
to help you talk to your kids about concussion safety. Your kids want to hear from you.>>Who else wants to try?>>So much fun.>>I bet I can win.>>My turn.

    I am an adult and I wanna try this game out; it seems fun and educational, and I need to learn more every day about all kinds of things. Unfortunately, I don't think I can get it, even if it is free (which I doubt), because I also don't have a lot of space on my phone, and Mom doesn't have a lot of space on her phone, and the Nook is full, too.
