A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury that changes the way the brain normally works. A concussion is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head or body that causes the head and brain to move rapidly back and forth.
Even a “ding,” “getting your bell rung,” or what seems to be a mild bump or blow to the head can be serious.

Abbott Summer Sports Camps
"TEACHING LIFE SKILLS THROUGH SPORTS"
The focus of the Abbott Summer Sports Camps is to establish a fun and encouraging atmosphere where your child can improve his or her skills. The emphasis of these summer camps is on improving a child's technical skill while enjoying the sport, practicing good sportsmanship, building teamwork, and teaching important life skills that the child can use on and off the field/court.
University of Nebraska-Lincoln student-athletes team up with the sport coordinators to coach sports and activities. These student-athletes serve as positive role models while encouraging campers to reach their full potential.

Athlete Spotlight on Haley Waggoner
Haley, a 21 year old tennis player is one of the toughest competitors at Abbott. Here is what Haley has to say about herself: “I love tennis! I’ve been playing for four years with Special Olympics and with USTA tennis. My greatest accomplishment was winning a gold medal at the Special Olympics national games in 2010 in Lincoln. I also loved seeing and playing with Andy Roddick at the national games! I’ve won state gold medals and played in two USTA adaptive tennis tournaments. My goal is to try to get into Special Olympics nationals again and maybe the World Games in 2014!”
Haley really enjoys the game of tennis and is constantly looking for ways to better her game. Despite her disabilities, nothing frustrates her more than loosing a match. Haley will be competing at the Cornhusker State Games in July. This will be Haley’s first non-adaptive tournament. Haley is a true inspiration to all of us and Abbott is very thrilled with all of her accomplishments. Good luck and keep it up!
