Injury reporting policy

Posted by Sooke & District Minor Hockey Association on Oct 03 2017 at 09:39PM PDT

Hello All,

There has been some confusion in regards to injuries and the return to play policies. Parents please familiarize yourself with a couple steps. If your child gets injured your team safety will provide you with an injury report form when you leave the arena. A doctor must fill this out, please return this form to your safety to file with Hockey Canada. Your child needs a return to play note from a doctor before returning to the ice.

Please keep in mind that Sooke Minor Hockey doesn’t make the policies however we must familiarize ourselves with it and we must follow it.

A few important reminders which are written on the injury report itself is;
– Injury reports must be completed and sent in within 90 days of injury (team safety responsibility) If not in within the 90 day deadline, Hockey Canada insurance will not cover the member for that injury throughout the member’s hockey career
– Parents must take form to Physician to have filled in
– If a child is removed from the ice (game/Practice) for an injury, they shall have a note from their Physician stating they are cleared to return to the ice.
