Ulster GAA Concussion Workshop Programme
Ulster GAA will be running out a series of workshops to raise awareness of concussion with the coaches in clubs throughout Ulster.
These workshops are designed to:
Introduce you to the topic in a non-medical way
The Brain – to take a look at the mechanics of the brain and movement within the scull
What is Concussion – examine what it is – and how we perhaps don’t regard it as an injury?
Help us recognise some Signs & Symptoms
Help us appreciate the Potential Dangers of not dealing with it seriously as we would with any other injury
Principles of Management / Action Plan for Coaches if it should happen
Considerations for Children (5-12 years) and how the injury needs managed
Helping your Players Cope when they have had a concussion
Return to Play and management back into full contact
Resources for Coaches that can be accessed and used to educate in your club or school
