CONCUSSION AWARNESS AND PROTOCOL
Purpose: Sport activities are a common source of concussion in youth. While most young players will recover fully from a concussion, those that continue to play while experiencing symptoms or who return to play too quickly following their injury risk longer-term health problems and perhaps even permanent disability or death. It is important to provide coaches, parents, and other interested persons with the knowledge needed to recognize a possible concussion and to respond appropriately in situations involving youth concussion.
Assessment: Concussions can be a very serious condition if not prevented or managed properly. Kamloops Community Football Society is taking the stance that every concussion is a serious condition and that we must take the appropriate steps to safeguard against and treat concussions in all our football programs.
