I'm the mother of the boy this thread is referring to. Where should I put an update so it's seen by everyone on this thread? Maybe make a new one?
I disagree. People would like to know if your son is OK.
It's an update but more of a PSA.
He was diagnosed with a concussion, out of school for two days, out of hockey for the week, follow-up at the Pediatrician today, still having headaches, probably won't be cleared for this week either. He was pretty bummed about watching his team play four games this weekend in NH from the bench. But he understands why.
I reached out to the league, the ref in charge and the MMF's and learned that the league and MMF's were not aware of the incident; it was never reported. Another parent had already emailed the RIF and neither one of us received a response. The director of MassConn, the EHF director and director of MMF's were very responsive once I submitted my report. I urge everyone; coaches, parents, etc to report unsafe situations. Don't assume it has already been reported. Situations such as this can be prevented in the future but only if the proper people are aware of the problem.
I want to thank everyone who documented what happened on this forum. And thank you for your concern.
Here we go. Hope mom is thick skinned. Can't say we didn't warn you.
