Coaches’/Referees’ perceptions of BokSmart

We conducted a qualitative study in 2012 to gain insight into coaches’ and referees’ perceptions of the BokSmart nationwide injury prevention program. To do this we set up focus groups with coaches, at various levels, as well as referees.

This research was recently published in the International Journal of Sports Science &¬†Coaching. Herewith is an infographic we created of the study’s main findings.


We look forward to hearing your feedback/thoughts!

How do I know it is a concussion?

We’ve prepared a concise infographic of a BokSmart review that appears in this month’s South African¬†Journal of Sports Medicine entitled “On-field identification and management of concussion in amateur rugby union“.

This is critical information for all coaches, parents and players!
