Starting next school year East and West high schools will be running a concussion software program called ImPACT. What does this mean for you? The Athletic Trainers will need to test your student prior to their season. At West I will start baseline testing after July 9th, 2012. I will be testing all West athletes, incoming Freshmen through Seniors. I will be working with the technology department and coaches to setup times and I will post those once I have them available. The whole test takes about 45 minutes from start to finish, the actually testing portion only takes 15-20 minutes.
Update: I am not going to need permission forms. This is a mandatory test for all athletes (contact or non-contact sports). If you have questions about this test please call me or email me.
