Activate and HEADCASE awareness
As we get closer to the start of the season, we want to make sure that players can take to the pitch safely and in their best condition.
The Activate resources below will help players return ready to play. Activate is an injury prevention exercise programme that can be integrated into training and pre-match sessions, and is available for players, rugby coaches and teachers via a suite of online resources.
Exercises are designed to improve functional and core strength, balance and agility, helping players with the game’s physical demands.
Exercises focus on three areas: General movement control, Pre-activation and Functional Conditioning. These aid activation of stabilising head and neck muscles, reducing the potential whiplash effect that can cause a concussion.
We also encourage all those involved in the game to take the HEADCASE online education module, which is open to all. The course provides information on how to recognise signs and symptoms of a suspected concussion, as well as concussion management and Graduated Return To Play protocols.
