Sports coaches need to be educated about concussion to keep players safe on the field
Athletes who play collision sports, like rugby league, rugby union and Australian rules football, are at increased risk of concussion.
Coaches can be key to promoting a supportive environment when it comes to concussion safety and prevention. This is because coaches are among the most influential individuals in an athlete’s life. Their role extends beyond teaching technical and tactical aspects of sport, as they play an integral role in athletes’ health, well-being and personal development.
