Canada Basketball and Basketball Manitoba understand that having a concussion policy is crucial to the health and wellness of their athletes. Through the amalgamation of concussion research completed by the Think First Foundation, the Concussion in Sport Group and the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Canada Basketball recommends this “Return to Play Protocol” before an athlete is allowed to return to both training and competition. The health and wellness of young athletes is imperative and Canada Basketball along with Basketball Manitoba strongly recommends that all athletes who receive any sort of injury, especially to the head, seek medical attention immediately.
This Return to Play Protocol is ONLY a recommendation. The top priority is always to seek a medical opinion.
