CONCUSSION POLICY: Concussions are a serious injury and will occur in roller derby. The risk is extremely high for compounded head injury if someone sustains re-injury before they are sufficiently rested and recovered. Athletes and participants suspected of having a concussion should be removed from play immediately. • A concussion is a type of traumatic brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that can change the way your brain normally works. Concussions can also occur from a blow to the body that causes the head to move rapidly back and forth. • Concussions should be suspected in the presence of any one or more of the following: symptoms (e.g., headache), or physical signs (e.g., unsteadiness), or impaired brain function (e.g., confusion), or abnormal behavior. • These are adapted policies based on The American Academy of Neurology Position Statement on Sports Concussion, which was adopted from the Consensus Statement on Concussion in Sport developed at the 3rd International Conference on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich, November 2008. • Any athlete who is suspected to have suffered a concussion must be removed from participation until the athlete is evaluated by a Physician with training in the evaluation and management of sports concussions • No athlete is allowed to participate in practices or games if they are experiencing symptoms from a concussion • Following a concussion, a neurologist or physician with proper training is to be consulted prior to clearing the athlete for return to participation. • Safety Personnel are required to be present at practices, games and events. • As a minimum standard, coaches, coaches, referees, captains or other support staff should be familiar with, have access to, and use the Sports Concussion Assessment Tools’ (SCAT2) Pocket Cards for field screening of suspected concussions. The minor and the guardian both understand this information.*
RETURN TO PLAY POLICY: Skaters are responsible for seeking medical attention for any injury sustained that affects the ability to safely skate and participate in roller derby. Skaters who have sustained serious injuries must be back practicing and fully participating in drills at least 4 weeks prior to competing in an official game. Serious injuries include but are not limited to fractures, partial or complete ligament tears, concussions, and any medical condition requiring surgery or overnight hospitalization. This requirement permits the injured skater to re-enter derby safely and it allows the team to get used to skating with the skater again. Coaches must obtain a formal doctor’s note from seriously injured skaters that are returning to play. The doctor’s note must specify whether the skater can return to skating with contact or skating without contact. If a coach feels the skater’s health is at risk then they may ask for more specific clearance from the skater’s medical professional. The doctor’s note will become part of the permanent skater file maintained by the league. If a skater, coach, or captain is unsure if an injury qualifies as “serious” or if the injured skater would like to appeal their situation then please consult with the Head of Training. In addition to following the advice of a medical professional please also consider the following factors before returning to skating: - Full, pain free range of motion of affected body part - Normal or average strength and power of affected body part - No excessive emotional concerns about re-injury - Functional stability: no limping or excessive compensation by other parts of the body for the affected body part - Relative freedom from pain Please be aware that re-injury is common when players return to sport before recovery is complete. This may be due to the athlete wanting to return to play, inadequate rehabilitation or external pressure from other players or coaches. Other injuries may occur due to athletes trying to protect their original injuries and subsequent altered behavior or biomechanics. The minor and the guardian have both read and understand this information.*
