Parachute Smart Hockey Program
Submitted By Chris Holdsworth on Monday, October 28, 2019
In partnership with the Coaching Association of Canada, the Parachute Smart Hockey program was designed to keep hockey players safe and prevent brain injuries on the ice. The Smart Hockey Concussion Kit has been created as a tool to guide coaches through important concussion information, help integrate concussion tools and resources within hockey teams, and support your hockey community to prevent, recognize and manage concussions.

Safety in hockey is a shared responsibility. Make concussion education a priority this season and encourage teams to play Smart Hockey. Smart Hockey Concussion Kits are now available to be downloaded at parachute.ca/smarthockey. Kits can be downloaded free of charge, and will include helpful resources such as:

  • Pre-season concussion education team meeting guide and checklist
  • On-ice tips to assist in preventing concussion in hockey
  • Concussion guides for players, parents and coaches
  • Personal concussion record for players
  • Return-to-Sport Strategy

 

If you want to help the Smart Hockey Concussion Kit reach more teams, you can:

  • Post on your social media channels using the hashtag #PlaySmartHockey. We’ve attached a social media guide that will help you to plan some content!
  • Send information about Smart Hockey to your networks through an e-blast.
  • Add Smart Hockey as a resource to your website.

 

We encourage you to get involved and show us how teams in your league are playing Smart Hockey! Remember to follow @ParachuteCanada on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to stay up-to-date on our Smart Hockey program!

 

If you want to learn more about the Smart Hockey program, please contact me directly or visit parachute.ca/smarthockey.

 

Thank you for your support, and we look forward to seeing how you and your league #PlaySmartHockey this season.

 

*Note: Smart Hockey does not replace the awareness education requirements under Rowan’s Law. Smart Hockey complements the Government of Ontario’s resources, providing you with tools to prevent, recognize, and safely manage concussions throughout the season.

 

Kindly,

Rachel Lamont
