Concussion policy

Suiting up for a game of full-kit gridiron feels like putting on a suit of armor. But even though we’re covered in protective gear, we’re not invulnerable to injury – especially concussion.

The issue of concussion management and awareness in sport is a huge talking point in all codes, and the Crusaders/Foxes are proactive and protective when it comes to the safety and well being of players.

Gridiron Victoria now requires all players to comply with its concussion policy, and the club is strongly backing the tougher stance.

Take a look at the links below for more information on recognizing concussion symptoms and managing head injuries.
