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.
The Return-to-Sport Strategies in the Resources section, below, help 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 are 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. If your sport is listed, we encourage you to include the sport-specific strategy in your organization’s concussion protocol. Suggested activities in these strategies may need to be adjusted to ensure they are appropriate for the level of sport.
Please check back as new sport-specific strategies continue to be developed.
