All teams should have players complete a player medical form at the start of the season. Forms to be kept on hand by the head coach or safety person. These forms can be important should there be an injury or need to transport a player to hospital if a parent or guardian is not available.
A gradual return to play is recommended for all players after an injury. Please refer to the Hockey Alberta Return to Play Guide for more information.
The Hockey Canada Return to Play form is to be completed by a doctor clearing a player to return to play after injury. This form should be returned to your player's coach, with a copy being sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This report should be completed within 90 days of an injury, with a copy submitted to Hockey Alberta. Please also submit a copy to email@example.com.
It is important that we know the signs of a concussion. An excellent tool, EGHA recommends all parents review the Concussion Awareness page on Hockey Canada's website.
Proper fitting equipment is important for the safety of a player. Take a look at the link poster for more information on equipment.
Proper nutrition is instrumental to a player's development. Refer to Canada's Food guide for more information on nutritional needs.
For more information on player health and safety, please speak with your team's safety person or check in with firstname.lastname@example.org.
