The Durham Catholic District School Board recognizes concussions as a serious injury. Concussion awareness, prevention, identification and management are a priority for the Board. A concussion is a serious event, but you can recover fully from such an injury if the brain is given enough time to rest and recuperate. Returning to normal activities, including sport participation, is a step-wise process that requires patience, attention, and caution. If you have any questions or concerns regarding your child's safe participation in sports activities please contact our school office and speak to a Vice-Principal if you have a concussion. 

For more information, read our Board's Concussion Management and Prevention Policy

If a child has experienced a previous concussion, then the following form must be completed:




All secondary school sports at the Durham Catholic District School Board are governed by the Lake Ontario Secondary School Athletics (LOSSA) and the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations (OFSAA). LOSSA and OFSAA are non-profit organizations that are responsible for the rules and regulations of all high school sports in Durham Region and Ontario. To access information for specific sports, visit the LOSSA and OFSAA websites.

2020-2021: LOSSA has come to the difficult decision of canceling the 2020 Fall season. The decision is in alignment with the province’s regulations and OFSAA. Decisions concerning the status of LOSSA winter and spring seasons will be announced at later dates and when decisions have been finalized.
