We have been fortunate to purchase the ImPACT Testing Program for our student athletes. ImPACT is a computer based testing program that helps manage sports-related concussions. It tests athletes reaction time and memory following an injury.
The following sports will be tested: Varsity Boys and Girls Soccer, Jr. High Girls Basketball, Varsity XC, Varsity Boys and Girls Basketball, Jr. High Boys Basketball, Varisty Wrestling, Jr. High Wrestling, Baseball, and Softball and Jr. High Soccer. Athletes only need to be tested once for their baseline. Example: if they played soccer in the fall, then they do not get tested again for winter or spring sports.
If any of our athletes receive a concussion, they will be tested on ImPACT 48-72 hours after the concussion in my office. I will contact the parents and send home the results of the test and explain the outcome. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.
Any questions about ImPACT, their website is www.impacttest.com.
