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.
Government of Canada reports;
- 1 in 2 Canadians have little or no knowledge about concussion
- 1 in 4 do not know how concussion is treated
- Only 15% can correctly identify the best ways to treat concussion
- Only 4 in 10 are aware of available concussion tools or resources
Staff from the Southern Alberta Concussion Clinic will be presenting this important information for coaches, parents and athletes.
