Its vital that as many Clubs attend this workshop. Concussion can be the unseen injury that can happen if not attended to correctly.

Death of a schoolboy:

On 29 January 2011, 14-year-old Ben Robinson played rugby union for his school. After being treated three times for blows to the head and sent back to the field on each occasion, he collapsed and later died in hospital.

This workshop is designed for parents, players and coaches to:

Introduce you to the topic of concussion in a non medical way or in lay mans terms. Examine what concussion is and how we perhaps don’t regard it as an injury. Help us recognise some of the Signs & Symptoms of Concussion. Help us appreciate the Potential Dangers of not dealing with it seriously as we would with any other injury Establish principles of management and or an Action Plan for Coaches if it should happen. Identify specific considerations for Children (5-12 years) and how the injury needs managed.

To ensure we help Players Cope when they have had a concussion. Establish a “Return to Play” and management of players back into full contact. Provide access to resources that can be used to educate in your club or school
