Type Safety Information
The purpose of this section of our website is to provide information to you, the parent.  With all the buzz recently on the overall safety of our kids, we feel that having a location for information is important.  The Penguins are only providing this information to help you as a parent to stay informed.  Our policy is documented as Penguin's Concussion Policy


​Every year, players of all ages in all sports receive concussion injuries during games and practice. Characterized by an impairment of the brain’s normal function and caused by violent shaking or jarring of the brain, concussions may cause alterations in cognitive function, vision, eye movement, facial movement, or speech. Contrary to popular belief, no helmet in any sport can prevent a concussion.

Concussions are a type of traumatic brain injury (TBI), caused by a blow or jolt to the head that can range from mild to severe and can disrupt the way the brain normally works. Coaches, administrators and trainers play a key role in helping to prevent concussion and in managing it properly if it occurs.
