Concussions can happen to anyone taking part in sport and recreation, and can sometimes have serious consequences. Coaches at every level must be able to identify the signs and symptoms of a concussion and know what to do when they suspect a participant has suffered one.
Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreational activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it’s important for all coaches, parents, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs.
All of CAC's resources are aligned with the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport, produced by Parachute Canada, and designed to teach you how to ensure the safety of athletes and participants.
For Canadians who are visually impaired or blind, an extensive list of resources on concussion and visual impairments are available on the Canadian Blind Sports website.
