ATOM PROGRAM AT HOME BASE THIS YEAR

The Sherwood Park Wolverines have partnered this year with the Fort Saskatchewan Falcons to roll out  a home  grown Atom Program.  Our 6:6 atom program follows all the principles and systems of the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) initiative our district embraced a few years back.  

Our players aged 7 - 9 play for 9 weeks from 9am - 11am every Saturday in Sherwood Park at our very own Emerald Hills Stadium or in Fort Saskatchewan at Eldon Brown Field Stadium. Our 6 teams kicked it off Aug 26th in Fort Sask in a round robin tournament style and the players all came off the field with BIG smiles. We break for September Labour Day long  weekend but are right back at it again at Emerald Hills Sept 9th. Come on out and watch our future stars play a game or 2 or 3.

Baseline Concussion Testing - Best Practice!

August 2017 the SCMFA/Wolverines joint venture worked with Elite Injury Management to conduct baseline concussion tests on Bantam and Peewee players that chose to participate in this testing.  Elite Injury Management also provided a separate education seminar for the Bantam athletes and parents to further discuss recognition, return to learn and play as well as discussing any myths or beliefs the groups had in regards to concussions.  
What it is: Concussion baseline evaluations are done typically during the pre-season to establish athletes "normal" for comparative purposes in case a concussion does occur during the season.  Elite Injury Management use the SCAT 5 and Child SCAT 5 which includes evaluation of symptom rating, balance and coordination testing and concentration/cognitive evaluation.  They also used a saccade evaluation which tests eye tracking.  The baseline evaluations are used to give athletes an idea of what to watch for if they do suffer a concussive injury, it also gives health professionals something to refer to if the athlete does suffer a concussion.
