Concussion Training for Teachers, Sports Managers, Coaches, Volunteers and Parents.

Carrick Education Centre in partnership with Leitrim Sports Partnership are running a concussion training course. As a teacher, sports coach, volunteer or parent your understanding of concussion is critical in firstly, identifying and managing a potential concussion safely and, secondly, helping students and athletes successfully recover from their injury upon their return to school and sport. Concussion is a mild traumatic brain injury that carries serious health risks, which are exacerbated by incorrect concussion management steps.

 A concussion can occur during PE, playing a sports match, playing on the school yard, cycling to school, or even tripping and falling while playing with friends. In what can be a chaotic experience, knowing the appropriate concussion management steps can make all the difference. 

 Over the course of 75 minutes, Concussion Coach will deliver an interactive learning experience designed specifically for teachers and sports coaches, volunteers and parents:
