HeadsUP Pittsburgh

Program Overview

HeadsUP Pittsburgh provides free baseline concussion testing and education to young athletes, parents and coaches.


Baseline Tests since 2010 funded by the Penguins Foundation

Since 2010, the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation and UPMC Sports Medicine have teamed up to create and expand a unique program—HeadsUP Pittsburgh—to combat an epidemic of concussions in young athletes.


Parents, coaches, referees and teachers have been educated about concussions and prevention

HeadsUP Pittsburgh, the first program of its kind and a blueprint copied by other NHL organizations and sports leagues, now embarks on its sixth year of supporting young athletes by continuing to provide precautions and exercises that can ultimately reduce concussions and other sports injuries.
