Currently, stand-down periods vary from six to 23 days. The aim is to ensure proper recovery and prevent future injuries. In 2020, ACC accepted almost 11,000 claims for sports-related concussion, costing $64 million. Teenagers and preadolescents had the highest number of injuries, with almost 5000 cases. The new guidelines cover rugby, league, football, netball, and equestrian sports.
