Concussions Tool

Home / glossary / Concussions Tool

Sports are a great way for children and youth to get exercise, make friends, and learn important life lessons. However, 40% of head injuries in children aged 10 to 14 occur during sport. Concussion is an invisible brain injury that cannot be seen by an X-ray, MRI, or CT scan. Coaches, teachers, parents, teammates and medical professionals cannot diagnose concussed players just by looking at them. Skate Canada’s goal is to build awareness and influence behaviour through education, policies, and return to play protocols.
