Concussion & Injury AwarenessUpdated Saturday March 18, 2017 by Concetta Slaney.
Attention Manhasset Soccer Club Coaches and Parents
Monday March 20th, 2017 - MHS Auditorium 7:30
Once again, Manhasset Soccer Club along with Manhasset PAL, will be offering a Concussion Awareness and Sports Prevention Seminar presented by Professional Physical Therapy.
This seminar is MANDATORY for all coaches (if you attended a previous seminar, you do not need to attend) Our program does not ask a coach or parent to diagnose a suspected concussion, but rather to just withhold boys and girls from play. This policy should be followed whether a suspected concussion has occurred during soccer or during another non-soccer related event.
We ask coaches to notify parents of the incident or if you are informed by the parents of a previous injury that has led to a suspected concussion. Please also notify Board Member Jeff , MD (please see below bio) - Jeff will responsible for tracking the player only, not diagnosing or treating any player for suspected concussion.
Once diagnosed by a medical professional and is "cleared for play," he/she may return to play. If the medical professional indicates that a concussion (even a so-called “mild” concussion) is present, then following written clearance of the child from a medical professional, the 5 step return to play procedure is conducted by the trainers before the child may return to play.
Please refer to the below links for more information including the"Heads-Up" On-line Concussion Course, required by all Coaches to complete upon registration.
Any questions, please contact Jeff email@example.com. Please let Jeff know if you will be attending the seminar on behalf of or PAL.at
