What to do if a concussion is suspected
 
  • Remove the athlete from play.
  • Ensure the athlete is evaluated by a health care professional experienced in evaluating concussions.
  • Inform the athlete’s parents or guardians about the possible concussion.
  • Keep the athlete out of play the day of the injury and until a health care professional experienced in evaluating concussion says they are symptom-free and okay to return to play.
 
This winter, use your head and play it safe.
