Markham Waxers Concussion Program

The Waxers organization is excited to be working with Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Hospital and their Concussion Centre to provide the best education, training, and physician-led concussion care for our athletes for the 2018-2019 season.

Holland Bloorview Kids Rehab Hospital is Canada’s largest kid’s rehab hospital and houses a Concussion Centre which focuses solely on pediatric concussion education, research, and clinical services. The centre includes clinicians specifically trained in pediatric brain injury and researchers who are leading experts in the field of youth concussion.

What if an athlete has a suspected concussion?

Please refer to the Concussion Policy Flow Chart on how to recognize a concussion and the steps that need to be taken as soon as possible in order to rule out anything more severe.

If diagnosed with a concussion at the first medical appointment (ER, walk-in clinic, or family physician), please ensure that a referral is send to Holland Bloorview right away to gain access to the physician-led concussion care at Holland Bloorview. Download the Holland Bloorview Referral Form. The fax number is located at the top of the form. This follow-up care is only applicable to youth who completed baseline testing with their team at the start of the season with Holland Bloorview.

Special Note

Only players who have completed baseline testing with Holland Bloorview have access to the physician-led concussion care at Holland Bloorview.

If you do not choose to receive concussion care from Holland Bloorview, you still must follow the Markham Waxers Concussion Policy and protocols. These include physician or nurse practitioner diagnosis and return to play clearance. This ensures each child returns safely from a concussion and reduces the chance of further or secondary injuries.
