Diving Canada has developed a new concussion protocol that we will adopt in Manitoba. The protocol has been developed as a result of Parachute Canada’s Concussion Protocol Harmonization Project. Parachute Canada is a national organization dedicated to preventing injuries and saving lives and was given the mandate to put in place a harmonized concussion policy that could be applied across all sports.
The advice and guidelines in this protocol are now being used by many sport organizations across the country, however, it is important to note that each sport has had to develop its own return to sport protocol. The diving specific return to sport information can be found on page 10.
