In 2019 HAWPC adopted a formal concussion protocol and procedure as outlined by Water Polo Canada. All coaches are familiar with this policy and our general rule of thumb in the club is “when in doubt sit the athlete out”. Our goal for every athlete is lifetime athleticism and our first priority is each and every athletes health and safety.
The adoption of this protocol is the direct result of parent Danielle PERKIN’S tireless work in educating the world in relation to the topics of Concussions and Head injuries. Please familiarize yourself with this document in relation to Head injuries and also in relation to our athletes return to play policy.
