The Bayswater Junior Football Club takes the management of concussion very seriously. As the welfare of our children remains our sole focus, we will continue to adopt the AFL slogan of “If in doubt, sit them out.”
The AFL provides guidelines for concussion recognition and early management in community football with specific provisions for children aged 5-17 years.
The guidelines are for trainers, first-aid providers, coaches, umpires, club officials and parents and should be understood and followed by all parties for the benefit and welfare of the players.
The Bayswater Junior Football Club will be following the guidelines as outlined in the AFL’s “The Management of Concussion in Australian Football” 2017 Document.
