Equipment Checks
Regular equipment checks should be performed.  Equipment should fit snug, like a puzzle and cover most of the body - every piece should touch the next (no large gaps in between pieces of equipment).


Emergency Action Plan - Have a charge person (usually the trainer), call person and control person designated from the team. This is helpful when an emergency does occur.

Player Medical Form - Required to be completed prior to a player participating in any team activities

Player Injury Log - Must be kept up to date and be filled out when a player sustains any type of injury during a game, practice or hockey team event. Trainer’s responsibility to determine whether player should return to action (not coach or parents).

Hockey Canada Injury Reporting - Must be completed when an injury is sustained by a player during a game, practice or team event and they require medical attention.  Must be submitted to the OWHA within 90 days of an injury (it ensures player is covered by OWHA insurance if needed)

Return to Play Form - A player who had an injury requiring medical attention must obtain a doctor’s clearance before returning to play (this includes an injury sustained in a non-hockey related activity which prevents a player from participating in practices, games or dryland sessions).  This is not just meant for concussions - it is required for all injuries.

Have a safe and fun hockey season!
