Concussion in sport

Concerns about concussion in sport are on the rise. With the news of a local soccer player sitting out the rest of the season due to concussion, it’s important to consider what your club is doing to protect its players.

Sports Medicine Australia has resources your club can use to recognise, treat and minimise incidences of concussion on the field. Check them out below.
