Sports clubs and leagues (including regional/state associations) have an important role to play in preventing the likelihood of concussions occurring. Importantly, this also includes managing and rehabilitating injured athletes. It is vital for such organisations to have contemporary policies, guidelines and action plans in place and made available to all members.
Every club, league and sporting association should have a clear and readily available concussion policy and a dedicated Concussion Officer. The Melbourne Physiotherapy Concussion Clinic is very happy to assist clubs and leagues in developing and implementing these policies and procedures. Please contact us for more information and advice.
