Hello All –
I would like to let you know about the concussion protocol that THDC is putting in place. In recent years we have had an increase in concussions in the competitive diving, Some of this is due to the increased acrobatic nature of the sport and some because of the increased awareness, and education of concussions in general. While we can not eliminate the possibility of a concussion during our training process. We can identify and treat them when and if necessary to minimize there effect. I was educated at the college I coached at previously, and in the course THDC is implementing in our program, that the majority of the concussions that happen in our sport will not present themselves un til after the kids are finished with practice and sometimes not until the next day. These symptoms may present themselves at the pool, but they are likely to present at home.
There for we are requiring every parent or guardian that is responsible for a THDC member to pass one of the exams that is easily found and completed from the USADiving.org website. We ask that you complete one of the exams, print the document that shows you passed the test, and give it to me at a convenient time.
Please follow one of the links below and take the course.
