The Play it Cool researchers are presently recruiting for participation in a research study to evaluate the effectiveness of this program in teaching hockey skills in a way that prevents or minimizes injuries, including concussions.
Play It Cool was developed to help enhance a coach’s ability to teach hockey skills using explicit injury prevention strategies. Currently our team, comprised of researchers from Lakehead, York University, the University of Toronto, Acadia University, the University of New Brunswick and York, is conducting a program evaluation for the Play It Cool Safe Hockey Program.
