Here is a link to an interesting CBC article about Concussion Clinics.
HEO Minor is happy to announce that we have received a grant from the Hockey Development Centre of Ontario which allowed us to purchase 1176 licenses for the Hockey Canada Coaching app. We have distributed those to all Novice, Atom and PeeWee coaches. After 7 days, if they have not been activated they will return to us and we will then be able to distribute to some Bantam coaches. This Hockey Canada app is an excellent coaching tool.
Here is a link to a great story from CBC about newly arrived Syrian boys enjoying our great sport in Ottawa East.
