Concussion is an issue that affects all sports and it is important that everyone in Rugby recognises the symptoms of concussion and removes from playing or training any player with clear or suspected symptoms.
The message is simple – RECOGNISE and REMOVE. Recognise the symptoms of concussion and permanently remove a player displaying any of those symptoms.
Working together with players, coaches, administrators, medics, scientists, the media and supporters, we can ensure the welfare of those who take the field at all levels of the game
Improving your knowledge of concussion safety could not be simpler. All BC Rugby staff, coaches, managers and therapists participate in mandatory Concussion Management training. Parents, players and anyone else involved in the sport is highly encouraged to take the Free Online Module from World Rugby so that we can keep our sport safe.
Rugby Canada PlaySmart is a Player Welfare program that aims to educate players, parents, coaches, match officials and administrators on the safety of rugby across Canada.
The health and safety of every player across the country is of paramount importance and Rugby Canada strives to ensure a safe playing environment at all levels. It is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that all players are protected and ensure that the game is played safely.
