Sport Organization Services

The purpose of our partnerships with local sport organizations is to create a community approach to concussion education and awareness that will seek to improve local sports organizations’ culture around concussions and mental health.

Establishing a partnership between PACA and your sport organization will provide the essential foundation to connecting your stakeholder community with the leading-edge local resources and information about concussions and mental health. PACA has developed programming to educate (athletes, coaches, parents and administrators), spread organization specific awareness around the injury, connect stakeholders with local resources, conduct sport specific concussion and mental health research led by Trent University professors and can help sport organizations navigate through Rowan’s Law protocols. By taking an individualized approach to each organization, PACA can mobilize the conversation around concussions within different stakeholder groups to effectively streamline the local response to sport related concussions.
