In a bid to safeguard the well-being of young athletes, the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) has introduced a groundbreaking set of guidelines aimed at tackling the issue of concussions in junior and community sports. These guidelines, crafted to prioritise safety, seek to mitigate both the immediate and long-term consequences associated with head injuries. Recognising the imperative of protecting our youth from the perils of concussions, the AIS’s initiative underscores a collective commitment to ensuring the health and safety of athletes at all levels of competition.

ABC’s Behind the News met with the Henley Sports Academy recently to unravel the complexities surrounding these potentially devastating injuries. Through insightful interviews with our own student athletes the segment explored the gravity of concussions, shedding light on why they pose such significant risks.
