U.S. Soccer has initiated a program, Recognize to Recover (R2R), to help reduce injuries to athletes.  This program provides a place for coaches to search for information about concussions and heat stress for example, and there are plans to continue to grow the R2R program and cover even more safety initiatives for our players (for example, in the future they may take a look at injuries sustained from sliding on turf).  To view the findings, recommendations and the enormous amount of information that has already been gathered for your use, please visit their website (ussoccer.com).
