The Barrie Soccer Club is partnering with Complete Concussion Management (CCMI), Sports Medicine and Mind2Muscle in sharing the following Concussion Awareness module:
Notwithstanding this module and our partnerships with Mind2Muscle, Sports Medicine and Complete Concussion Management (CCMI), the Barrie Soccer Club strongly recommends that team officials, parents and players need to monitor potential signs of concussion including balance difficulties, dizziness, nausea or headaches after a collision or a hard fall. In the event of any or all of these signs, immediately remove the player from play. The player should seek independent medical advice through a qualified service provider, their personal physician, walk in clinic or emergency services noting the nature of their injury so that medical personnel can properly conduct analysis that may include a neurological exam with special attention to the assessment of cognition, memory and balance.
A great resource on concussion Management is the following website:
Please review the BSC Concussion Policy and Return to Play Requirements that are posted under About/Rules & Regulations.
As part of our partnership with Mind to Muscle, they have recommended a Sports Medicine Physician, now available for Barrie Soccer Club members!
Dr. Robert Gabor is a Sport Medicine Physician working at the newly opened Springwater Sports Medicine Clinic, 1017 Carson Road, Barrie. BSC players are able to book directly with him for assessment and evaluation of a sport injury. His sport medicine experience includes working with the Barrie Colts, Skate Canada, Subaru Triathlon, Canada Winter Games, Ontario Winter Games, and the PanAm Games. Dr. Gabor is an avid soccer player and has been coaching minor soccer for the last four years.
