🟢 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.
