Player Concussions & Injuries (Muskrat Minor Hockey)

PrintPlayer Concussions & Injuries

When a potential concussion has occurred, the team Trainer is the first point of contact with the injured player. The Trainer will evaluate the player in question, using appropriate protocols and will make a determination based on their assessment of the player.

If the Trainer determines that the player may be concussed or is showing symptoms of a possible concussion, then they WILL deem that player unfit to play until assessed by a Physician. No player can return to play until the attending Physician has given the player clearance to do so in writing. The Trainer’s decision is final and cannot be overturned by the Coaching staff or the Parents until the above-mentioned criteria have been met. (HEO 6.12 Concussion Return to Play Protocol).
