October 25, 2015 - The number one concern in sport is injury prevention. In sports such as speed skating, hockey, football, and rugby, where impact occurs, concussion recognition and prevention are a key part of the equation. To this end, BCSSA has provided to clubs a Pocket Concussion Recognition Tool. Feel free to make a copy and keep it handy for any activites that you or your family might be involved in. Feel free to pass it on. Feel free to talk to your coach if you have any questions.
