Concussion Policy

With the ever-growing concern of sports-related concussions, Crossover Hoops Inc. has taken the initiative to implement its own concussion policy.  We have joined the national movement, with the intent to protect our participants. ​

It is the purpose of Crossover Hoops Inc., to promote the utmost safety for all of its participants who participate in a Crossover Hoops Inc. event and/or venue; to do so in a manner that provides reasonable safety and well-being at all times.​

Crossover Hoops Inc. recognizes that the potential for harm from concussions is a serious matter, and must be addressed immediately. Henceforth, our Concussion Policy was implemented to limit the potential harm, which could result from continued participation after a concussion-related injury.​

We have therefore established a Concussion Policy for and on behalf of Crossover Hoops Inc., which is as follows:  Where there is reasonable cause to believe that a concussion may have occurred, the participant shall not be allowed to continue his/her participation in the Crossover Hoops Inc. event/activity without a medical release; giving permission to resume such participation. Any player sustaining a head injury will result in immediate suspension from tournament play, until Crossover Hoops Inc. is provided with a professional medical release form. No coach, parent or player can override the Crossover Hoops Inc. Concussion Policy.


Coaches/Directors can take free online courses that provide important information, in handling situations that may involve concussion injuries.  See below:
