Skate Ontario Concussion Policy
In accordance with the policies of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, Skate Ontario has developed a Concussion Policy for the sport of figure skating in Ontario. That policy can be reviewed by clicking on the pdf link below:
If a skater is removed from practice/competition because of a suspected concussion, they will not be allowed to return to practice/competition until cleared to do so by an appropriate health care provider using the Return to Play Form (Appendix A).
Skaters and parents/guardians must acknowledge reading the Skate Ontario Concussion Policy when registering to enter a Skate Ontario event, and must complete the Skate Ontario Concussion Disclaimer (Appendix B) as part of the registration and before being allowed to practice or compete.
