National Guidelines for Concussion

As you may have seen in the media recently, Sport NZ and ACC have jointly released a standardised set of national guidelines for the identification and treatment of concussion.  For more information click here; ‘A game changer for community sport’: ACC launches National Concussion Guidelines.

This doesn’t represent a major change for College Sport Wellington’s events and competitions, as this is essentially the approach we’ve been taking for the past few years.  However, there are some minor differences in the “return to play” protocols/timings in these new guidelines, which we will now adopt.  With that in mind, please find attached an updated copy of CSW Bylaws Appendix 9 – Concussion Protocol.
