Concussion Information
Submitted By Lori Guthrie on Wednesday, November 27, 2013
The Hockey Canada Concussion Awareness app is a great tool for parents, coaches, trainers, players, administrators and anyone interested in learning about the prevention, recognition and response to concussion injury, including responsible return-to-play protocol.

 The Hockey Canada Concussion Awareness app for kids is a great tool for parents to teach young players how to prevent concussions through respect and playing by the rules. The app explains important concussion information in an easy-to-follow manner for young players and contains an interactive game around respect starring Puckster, the official mascot of Hockey Canada. 

A SPECIAL NOTE TO PARENTS– As we are all aware any activity has a certain amount of risk attached to it -  but if the sport is played the way it is meant to be played – with respect and by the rules  the health benefits will far outweigh the risks. The Hockey Canada Concussion app for kids contains great information and we recommend that parents and guardians go through the information with their young players!

Here is the link to the app:  www.hockeycanada.ca/apps
