Read about the research we have done on Concussion Management and the team incentives being offered to our PeeWee, Bantam, and Midget teams: Protecting Our Players - SHIFT Concussion Management Program.
The below links provide additional information on concussions and guidance for parents, players and coaches/trainers on diagnosis and management. One of the most valuable tools is a 26-minute Hockey Canada-endorsed video on thinkfirst.ca which provides a comprehensive overview of concussions in a kid/parent/ coach friendly way. Recent articles that relate to concussions in minor hockey are also linked below.
