The West Ottawa Ringette Association is hosting a Concussion Awareness Session on Tuesday, October 13, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. upstairs at the Kanata Recreation Centre in Hall A. We invite all coaches and parents to attend. We strongly encourage our U14, U16 & U19 players to attend, and believe this session will also be beneficial for our U12 aged players.
Dr. Kristian Goulet will be our guest speaker. Dr. Goulet trained in Pediatrics and completed a fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine. During his time at Harvard, Dr. Goulet worked extensively in Sports Medicine, most notably with concussions, and designed a Concussion Education Program.
During this awareness session, he will cover such topics as:
- how to identify a concussion
- initial steps to speed recovery and avoid reinjury
- how to transition back to school and back to sport
- concussion prevention, mouth guard, baseline testing information
To help us make sure we set up the room appropriately to accommodate everyone, we ask that anyone interested in attending, please go to the link below to “pre-register”. We hope to have a good turnout!
