How It Works: HeadCheck And The New CJHL Concussion Program


HeadCheck Health will be providing concussion management software to help the CJHL’s 10 Member Leagues perform their concussion protocol as part of the new CJHL Concussion Program. The software will allow all 133 teams to perform the new mandatory concussion protocol and each league to monitor protocol compliance. Funding from The Co-operators as part of the SJHL Assistance Program provided the foundation for the program.

“The entire CJHL Board feels introducing HeadCheck is a major step forward in moving towards better concussion management throughout the CJHL. We feel it’s a very proactive and positive undertaking to keep CJHL Member Leagues and members ahead of the curve in player safety, which is a paramount concern within our program.” – Brent Ladds, CJHL President
