Skating and shinny safety and rules

Concussion information

The Town of Huntsville is committed to the health and well-being of all employees and participants in sports and recreation programming.

The Ministries of Education, Health and Long Term Care and Tourism, Culture and Sport are working together to increase awareness of head injury prevention.

The Town of Huntsville concussion policy is to provide concussion awareness to all individuals in Town of Huntsville recreation programming, in addition to those participating in an activity being hosted by another group/organization in a Town of Huntsville facility. The Town of Huntsville will inform customer groups that a concussion policy has been implemented and resources will be available for their information to distribute to their members.

The Town of Huntsville, all participants, coaches, community services and recreation & leisure staff, trainers and safety personnel, fitness trainers, parents, etc. have a role to play to ensure the safety of those participating in physical activity. This includes encouraging and motivating participants to assume responsibility for their own safety and the safety of others. The Town of Huntsville will have concussion resource information available within town facilities to assure that safety is priority.

Please ask customer service for a concussion awareness brochure if you are interested in learning more.
