Fremont YSC Concussion Program
Concussion in sports has become highlighted significantly over recent years, with many ex professionals of multiple sports suffering from brain injuries sustained from participation in sports.
This is a serious issue, and an issue addressed at the youth level to ensure longevity of health for all players.
- Coaches will notify the parent of any player which was removed from practice due to a head injury and suspected concussion. The club will provide a Concussion Report for the parent to sign. The Club will keep on record all incidences reported.
- Any player suspected of sustaining a concussion, or head injury is to be immediately removed from the athletic activity. In order to return to practice or be available for a game the player must gain written clearance from a licensed health care professional that they are fit to play.
- If a concussion has been sustained the player must not return to practice until a minimum of 7 days, and with further guidance and clearance from the health care professional.
