Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreational activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it’s important for all coaches, parents, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs. Hockey Manitoba is committed to increased education, awareness, and protocols that will help members gain the knowledge and skills required to ensure the safety of our athletes. Together we can ensure a safe sport environment.
Book a Concussion Workshop
Sport Manitoba and the Sport Medicine and Science Council of MB have partnered to offer concussion workshops to educate athletes, coaches, parents, and all members of the sports community on concussion recognition. These courses are aligned with the standardized sport-specific concussion protocols approved by Sport Manitoba and Manitoba’s Provincial Sport Organizations. The course will address many questions on what a concussion is, how to spot the signs and symptoms, what to do, how to prevent future concussions, and the proper steps to return to the field of play.
