AbstractIn a recently published edition of the Journal of Physical Education, Recreation and Dance, we read with interest responses given by readers on ‘how should coaches, parents and participants be informed of the risks and rewards of their participation’ (2017: 54) in sports with a risk of head trauma. Over the past decade, increasing attention has been forthcoming on the issues of traumatic brain injuries, repetitive sub-concussive traumas and the long-term, and sometimes fatal, implications of concussion (McKee et al. 2014) often focusing on contact sports, such as American Football, Ice Hockey or the various codes of Rugby.
