Full text...

This notice is intended for only Coaches and HCSP, others may disregard.


We apologize for short notice however BC Hockey has just advised us of an offer to attend a hockey specific first aid course. It is set for September 30th - 12:30-7:30 at South Surrey Arena.


This is a pilot program the BC Hockey and Sport Med BC are working in partnership on. They have taken the basic First Aid and changed it to focus directly on hockey scenarios. 


Content: Participants will be guided through Emergency Action Planning, Medical Record keeping and documentation of injuries, Recognition and Management of Life Threatening and Non-Life Threatening Scenarios, Concussion Recognition and Acute Management and Return to Play Protocols, as well as Injury Prevention Principles.


The link for the course is:



Coaches and HCSP will be reimbursed the $40 cost.


We understand this timeline may be a challenge for some to meet. We will make efforts to bring an offering like to a local venue this season.
