With the women’s AFL season already underway and the men’s season soon to commence, the release last week of Concussion in Sport Australia’s Position Statement has been well timed. As the summer of cricket winds up over the next month or so, we will in turn see the nation-wide roll out of our winter sports. The contact nature of many Australian winter sports brings with it the inherent risk of sport-related concussion (SRC), a condition that has been gathering enormous attention and in turn heightened awareness and the development of improved management algorithms in recent years.
