πŸ€ Basketball MANITOBA Concussion Education & Resource Centre

Welcome to the Basketball Manitoba Concussion Education and Resource Centre. Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreational activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it’s important for all coaches, parents, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs.

A concussion is a brain injury that can’t be seen on routine X-rays, CT scans or MRIs. It affects the way a person may think and remember things, and can cause a variety of symptoms. Any blow to the head, face or neck, or a blow to the body that jars your head, could cause a concussion.

Basketball Manitoba is committed to increased education, awareness, and established protocols that will assist you in gaining the knowledge and skills required ensuring the safety of your athletes. We can all work together to ensure a safe sport environment. If we take the following approach, we can all make basketball a safer experience for all πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€

Follow the prevention information shown in the above sections to help us all reduce the instances of concussions in our sport.

Use the tools and resources to help recognize the symptoms of a concussion and get help.

While recovering from a concussion, use the return to play protocols to gradually get yourself back on the court.

With the proper clearance, make a healthy return to the court and keep basketball a sport for life!

"Taking time away from basketball to treat a concussion can seem like a major sacrifice β€” but it's nothing compared to giving it up forever due to a permanent brain injury."
