Mission Sports Council hosts free concussion seminar

Parents, coaches and officals encourgaed to attend

The Mission Sports Council is calling on all parents, coaches and officials to join them as they learn about the serious issues around concussions.

A seminar led by Dino Geremia, a long-time University football coach (20+ years) as well as coaching provincial and national levels, will take place in Mission on Tuesday, Oct. 3 from 6:30 to 9 p.m.

The Concussion Clinic is free but organizers ask that you register ahead of time

Hosted by the Mission Sports Council, the event takes place at the Mission Leisure Centre, 7650 Grand St.

A national master facilitator for the NCCP in football and a learning facilitator for fundamental movement skills, Geremia is also a provincial physical literacy mentor.

In B.C and across the country, he has been instrumental in the facilitation and promotion of safe contact, an NCCP football program that serves to educate coaches, players and parents about the risks of playing football and the measures being done to ensure each player knows their role in minimizing those risks.

Since 2010, Geremia has been a part of committees and presentations nationally and provincially aimed at increasing knowledge about concussions and teaching techniques that alleviate the risks. He remains committed to the education process in this area while promoting participation in sport.

He most recently has become a consultant and board member with the Washington Kids Foundation which is an organization committed to erasing barriers for children and youth so they can participate in healthy activities and dream of future successes.

To confirm a spot at this seminar, contact the Mission Leisure Centre at 604-820-5350.
