The Concussion Management Program

The concussion management program, has been shown to help provide a safe return to play for players.  Our association will continue with the program in the 2016/17 season, and will be expanding the program to make it mandatory for baseline testing for all players who are Atom age and up.

 

The following is some basic guidelines if a head injury is incurred and the return to play guidelines.

  •   If a player is suspected to have suffered a concussion, the first step is to go to your family physician for confirmation. Once a concussion is confirmed by the family doctor, please get a referral from the physician to see a sports medicine doctor.  Next, call Grand River Sports Medicine (519-571-7111) and book an appointment with a doctor there for a concussion assessment and make them aware that the player has had the baseline testing.
  •  Throughout the process, please keep the coaching staff aware of the progress and timelines to return that have been communicated by the physician.
  •  Once the physician has cleared the player to return to games, please provide a physicians note to the coaching staff so they have confirmation the player has been cleared to play.

 

During this entire process, the concussion management coordinator is available to answer any questions you may have with regards to the program. Below are some links to some important information that may be helpful in case of injury.
