Concussion in Youth Hockey – Infographic

A concussion (in youth hockey and otherwise) is a type of brain injury caused by a bump, blow, or sudden jolt to the head or by a bang to the body. This causes the head and the brain to move rapidly back and forth.

There are different levels of concussion, but even a mild one can have an impact. Like anything to do with the head and the brain, it’s important to take the matter seriously.

Keep in mind that what may seem to be an innocuous bang to the head in a game, can turn out to be something more serious shortly after.

Sometimes the young athletes play down a blow to the head for fear of losing out on game time, but this is a bad idea! One’s health is one’s wealth after all!
