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!
Along with Dr. Gabor, Dr. Katherine Nanos, a Sports Medicine Physician, is also available for Barrie Soccer Club members!
Dr. Nanos has worked with athletes competing in a variety of different sports, at a variety of levels; from “weekend warriors” to professional athletes (NFL, MLB, NBA), swimmers to soccer players. Dr. Nanos also commonly uses ultrasound as an extension of her physical examination to aid in formulating a diagnosis.
Drug Awareness Training
Our Drug Awareness training module in conjunction with the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit was a great success! Those who have not completed the classroom sessions are in the final stages of follow up sessions to be completed by the end of April.
