Are your Athletes at risk?

According to new data from the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), 4.1 million Canadians aged 12 and older suffered an activity-limiting injury in 2009. About 35% of these injuries occurred while taking part in sport or physical exercise, the most common type of injury-causing activity. Adolescents aged 12 to 19 had the highest injury rate of all age groups covered by the survey.

The Coaches Association of Ontario is partnering with Sunnybrook’s RBC First Office for Injury Prevention to educate coaches, parents, officials and sport administrators on the latest Injury Prevention topics including managing and reintegrating players with injuries and preventing injury from occurring or reoccurring.
The Return to Play Series of webinars are FREE and available online, making the information readily accessible.

We invite you to join us for the first webinar: Brain Injury 101
Currently, brain injury is a serious and commonly reported injury for children, adolescents and athletes participating in sports and recreational activity. It is important that everyone (coaches, parents, trainers) understand how to prevent, recognize and manage brain injuries among their athletes and to recognize when an athlete is safe to Return To Play.

Date: August 24, 2010
Time: 12pm EDT

The webinar will be 60 minutes long and will include a 30-40 minute presentation by sport and medical panel experts followed by a 20-30 minute question and answer period.
