Health and safety


Prevent and manage concussions 

Our priorities are our players’ health and safety.

Rugby Quebec relies World Rugby’s concussion management protocols.

If you wish to learn more about preventing concussions, World Rugby’s website offers learning modules

Also, Rugby Quebec relies the guidelines contained in the Plan de prévention contre les commotions (in french only) of the Ministère de l’Éducation.



Rugby Canada PlaySmart

PlaySmart is a program established in 2016 by Rugby Canada.

It requires from coaches and referees who are involved in the rugby community minimal knowledge to manage and prevent injuries (such as concussions).

They are required to complete the online training offered by World Rugby on the topic.

We joined this program with enthusiasm to ensure the safety of our players.
