Recent studies show medium decline on youth hockey due to concussions.

Very interesting read here. Parents are questioning whether concussions is a form of child abuse and due to recent studies a decline in youth hockey due to parental worries.

Child abuse?

But for those familiar with Australian Football, there has been a massive decline in youth participation as well, due to knee injuries, leg injuries and concussions. It's a natural thing that the more physical sports that get a lot of negative media attention through injuries will make parents hesitate to let their children play it.
