🟢 Return 🚦
🟢 MEDICAL CLEARANCE LETTER 🚦
Athletes who have been provided with a Medical Clearance Letter may return to full sport activities as tolerated. If the athlete experiences any new concussion-like symptoms while returning to play, they should be instructed to stop playing immediately, notify their parents, coaches, trainer or teachers, and undergo follow-up Medical Assessment. In the event that the athlete sustains a new suspected concussion, the BASKETBALL MANITOBA YOUTH CONCUSSION PROTOCOL should be followed as outlined.
Athletes who are diagnosed with a concussion should be managed according to the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport including the Return-to-School and Return-to-Sport Strategies. No athlete that has been diagnosed and is being treated for a concussion can be “returned to play” without presenting this signed Medical Clearance Letter to their head coach.
