Zero tolerance for ‘dangerous behaviours’ in amateur sport, committee says

Friday, September 15, 2017

Hits to the head and other risky contact in youth sport cannot be tolerated — even if they are unintentional — and must be punished with immediate removal from the game, says a report released recently by Rowan’s Law Advisory Committee.

The committee, which looked at concussion prevention and management in amateur sport and in schools across Ontario, includes a number of recommendations that would implement mandatory training for coaches, health care professionals and teachers as well as better monitoring and tracking of injuries.
