Premier Academy Injury Protocol - Return To Play Guidelines
Step 1 – Let the coaching staff know about the injury, location to body, how it happened and pain level or swelling level
Step 2 – If this is a new injury, Premier coaching staff will provide immediate access to a physiotherapy session at Coast Therapy which will be covered if the family does not have extended benefits. Coast Therapy will contact you within 12-24 hours.
Step 3 – Coast Therapy or deemed more serious Coastal Health & Performance will provide treatment, and exercises to do at home – please do these twice per day.
Step 4 – Return to training is monitored by the Head Coach of each Team. All parents need to provide Director Shawn Agnew with a monthly update. From there, Shawn Agnew will be in contact with Athletic Therapist Darren McConaghy or Coast Therapy’s office for further guidance and support.
Step 5 – Attend training! We will slowly increase load % and when the player is ready, will be re-introduced to limited minutes within a training game or league game.
Note: A player or their parent(s) MUST not ask to play games when they have not seen a professional practitioner. They must receive treatment, return to training and follow the return to play guidelines.
