FGHA Concussion Study

The FGHA is taking part in a concussion study this year to better understand the causes of concussions within youth hockey and work toward prevention strategies. There is a great deal of research ongoing about detection and management of concussions, but a definite lack of focus on prevention.

This study will analyze the specific causes of concussions through surveys and observation to look for trends through the collection of data on suspected incidents, including such factors as where on the ice the incident occurred, whether the incident involved the boards, other players or the ice, and whether it was penalized.

A summary of the results will be added to the website by May, 2019.
