Concussion Protocol Resources for Sport Organizations
The resources on this page will help sport organizations develop and implement evidence-based, best-practice concussion protocols based on the Canadian Guideline on Concussion in Sport. These resources are free to download and use.
Be sure to check if your National Sport Organization or your Provincial/Territorial Sport Organization has adopted a harmonized protocol.
Develop your concussion protocol:
- Canadian Harmonized Sport Concussion Protocol Template
- Canadian Harmonized Sport Concussion Protocol Checklist
Implement your concussion protocol:
- Pre-Season Concussion Education Sheet
- Medical Assessment Letter
- Medical Clearance Letter
- Concussion Recognition Tool 5 (CRT5)
- Sport Concussion Assessment Tool 5 (SCAT5)
- Child SCAT5 (ages 5-12)
Sport-Specific Return-to-Sport Strategies
The Return-to-Sport Strategy helps athletes, parents, coaches, trainers, teachers, and medical professionals to partner in allowing an athlete to make a gradual return to sport activities following concussion. Where possible, activities should be tailored to create a sport-specific strategy that helps the athlete return to their respective sport.
Parachute, Parachute’s Concussion Expert Advisory Committee, and National Sport Organizations worked together to develop the sport-specific strategies below. If your sport is listed, we encourage you to include the sport-specific strategy in your organization’s concussion protocol.
