Winter Concussion Protocol
Jul 10, 2018, 4:38 pm

 

Here is the process when someone has a suspected concussion:

 

1. Athletic trainer will refer to a physician (MD or DO), ideally the athlete will go to the Sports Neurology Clinic where they got their baselines, which is also easier communication for me when it comes to getting their clearance and documentation.

2. Once diagnosed, no physical activity until the patient has no symptoms for one day.

3. When the patient has gone a full day without symptoms, the graduated return to play process can begin. (see attached)  This process takes at least 5 days, because there must be 24 hours in between each stage. Stages cannot be skipped, and one cannot complete two stages in one day.  The athlete should complete each stage under supervision of the athletic trainer, unless otherwise specified, so the student-athlete is expected to check in with me after school each day during their concussion return process.

4.  Once the athlete is ready complete the last stage, the full contact practice, the doctor is contacted (by athletic trainer if they went to the Sports Neurology Clinic) and the MHSAA clearance form will be obtained, signed by DOCTOR, PLAYER, AND PARENT.  (the MHSAA return form is also attached) Athletic trainer then faxes this form to the MHSAA and the athlete is officially cleared to play in games.  This process can be difficult if the athlete goes to a pediatrician or other doctor that does not have a relationship with the athletic trainer, and the doctor may require the patient to be seen in their office again to be cleared, so please keep this in mind. Of course athletes can go to whatever doctor their parents feel comfortable with, they just need to know they may need a second appointment in order to get cleared.  At the Sports Neurology Clinic, all doctors are Neurologists, and I know them all and in most cases getting a clearance form just involves sending a text to them, and they email a signed copy to me, which I will get signed by the athlete ad parent.

 

Any other questions? If you're able, it might be a good idea to forward this message to parents.

If parents have any questions they can also contact me via my email below.

Coach's Corner


Farmington
Dec 11, 2008, 11:12 pm
Novi 5   Farmington 1

Last year,  Farmington beats us in a scrimmage 5 to 0 and went on to a great season and a playoff run to the State Semi-Finals. They are a well coached team and traditionally have a very successful program.

Payback during this year's regular season game, against a well coached and hard working team with a tradition of success, was satisfying for the following reasons:  Mark Vellucci is a neighbor and friend to the Nolan Anderson family. Furthermore, Mark is a friend of mine, a great coaching resource to me,  a co-creator with me and 4 other coaches of the Michigan Elite High School Hockey Program, and a great person and ambassador for high school hockey.
More importantly, We needed to execute our game plan--which we did. We needed to bounce back after the Canton loss by working hard and competing while playing smart, simple, and consistent--which we did. We needed better overall performances and work ethic from each individual on the TEAM--which we did. Lastly, we needed to create more scoring chances and puck movement on the power play--which we did through inverting our power play setup.

The guys did a great job preparing for and getting focused on the Farmington game. The results showed. Furthermore, our 3P's(Puck Possession, Puck Protection, & Puck Movement) improved, we stayed out of the box, and we executed our game plan.

Overall, It was a job well done!
