Health and Safety

Concussions can happen in any sport or physical activity. The Center for Disease Control has very good information for parents and players about concussion prevention, assessment and treatment in youth sports.  You should discuss this information with your skater; and your skater should report any concerns right away to their coach if they have a fall, bump, or hit to the head. Our coaches receive training concerning concussion prevention and assessment. Concussion symptoms may occur after the incident, even a day later. It's important for parents to know the symptoms of concussion. If you think your child might have a concussion, he or she should see their medical provider to be assessed as soon as possible. The doctor will determine when it is appropriate for your child to return to play. FVYHA provides baseline ImPact Testing in the fall for our skaters 10 and over to help your provider manage concussion if needed.
