CONCUSSION ASSESSMENT

What to do if a player’s head injury is not an emergency?

  • Remove the individual from the playing field and do not let them return to play for the remainder of the day.
  • Do not leave the injured player alone.
  • Watch for (and record if any) new symptoms.
  • Notify ASAP the parents or emergency contacts of injured player
  • Player should be seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
