Concussion Info & Head Injury Prevention

Brain Injury Safety Tips and Prevention

Prevention Tips 

  • Limit the amount of contact during practices. This may include:
    • Limiting the amount of practice time that includes scrimmages or full-speed drills.
  • The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:11
    • Expanding the availability of non-contact hockey programs.
    • Limiting body checking in competition to athletes age 15 and over and to elite levels of youth ice hockey.
    • Teaching body-checking skills in practices only for athletes age 13 years and over who are geared to elite participation.
  • Keep a close eye on athletes in the wing position—who are at increased risk for concussion.
  • Enforce the rules of the sport for fair play, safety, and sportsmanship.
  • Ensure athletes avoid unsafe actions such as:
    • Hitting another athlete in the head;
    • Using their helmet to contact another athlete (helmet-to-helmet or helmet-to-body contact);
    • Making illegal contacts or checking or colliding with an unprotected opponent; and/or
    • Trying to injure or put another athlete at risk for injury.
  • Make sure athletes always wear a helmet that fits well and is in good condition.
  • Work with the game or event administrator to remove tripping hazards and ensure that equipment has padding that is in good condition.
     

Why This Is Important

  • Concussions are 13 times more likely to happen during competitions versus practice in high school ice hockey.7
  • Almost two-thirds (64%) of concussions in high school ice hockey resulted from contact with another athlete.7
  • About 1 in 3 concussions in high school ice hockey (30%) result from being checked.7
  • Half of concussions in high school ice hockey are sustained by athletes in the wing position.

Learn to Skate

MYH will be partnering with the Norfolk Arena to offer kids age 5 and over for the Learn to Skate clinics. The clinics will be offered at the Norfolk Rink with multiple options for days of the week and time slots. The Norfolk Arena runs a very solid Learn to Skate program with excellent coaching and has over 400 kids enrolled from area towns across several different levels. 


The Learn to Skate program will teach our younger and less experienced kids the foundations of skating - which is a must in order to play hockey at the older ages. Kids will then transition into the Medfield Youth Hockey program In-House or Mite Travel Hockey programs in future years. Please visit Norfolk Arena at www.norfolkarena.com to register your child if interested. The website has all of the various programs / dates / times / costs as well as other important information for parents and kids.


The sessions begin in late October/early Nov, early January and early March. We look forward to a strong partnership with Norfolk Arena as we begin to develop the next level of great skaters for MYH.

MYH & Driscoll Hockey Skills

MYH will be implementing a new skills program this year.  We have partnered with Driscoll Hockey Skills (www.driscollhockey.com) for an enhanced focus on skating.  The Driscoll team - led by Tim Driscoll - will be soley focused on the skating stride.  There will be limited puck work during the skills training.  

For the first part of the season - the Skills training will take place from 7 AM to 9 AM Sunday mornings at Norfolk. We will then switch to 5 PM to 7 PM on Sunday nights - also in Norfolk. Check the MYH webiste for scheduling times. We realize that there will be Valley League games on Sundays that may present conflicts. We will work around those conflicts as best as possible.  

Goalies are welcome to attend the Driscoll skills on Sundays - but should be dressed as skaters and not goalies.
