"Athletes, referees, administrators, parents, coaches and healthcare providers must be educated regarding the detection of concussion, its clinical features, assessment techniques and principles of safe return to play."

Excerpt from the Consensus statement on concussion in sport: the 4th International Conference on Concussion in Sport held in Zurich, November 2012

Welcome

Sports are a great way for children and youth to get exercise, make friends, and learn important life lessons. However, 40% of head injuries in children aged 10 – 19 occur in sport.

Concussion is an invisible brain injury that cannot be seen by an x-ray, MRI, or CT scan. Coaches, teachers, parents, teammates and medical professionals cannot diagnose concussed players just by looking at them. The Parachute Online Concussion course gives players, parents, and educators the tools and resources they need to prevent, recognize, and manage concussion.
