Concussion

In short, they're testing saliva for chemicals indicative of concussion.

Concussion has been mentioned on this board previously, regarding spins/jumps/falls;
also present in ice hockey, and short track speed skating; long track is probably more safe.

Question for the coaches; has there been much coverage from the NGBs regarding concussions?
Does the required First Aid course currently cover it in much detail?
Sliding on frozen water is the easy part of ice skating.

To add; a recent (22nd July) report published regarding concussion in sport.

https://committees.parliament.uk/work/977/concussion-in-sport/news/

"62. We recommend that the Government immediately mandate the Health and Safety Executive to work with National Governing Bodies of all sports to establish, by July 2022, a national framework for the reporting of sporting injuries."

There is paraphrased evidence from an ice hockey player (Monica Petrosino) in the report.
