All student athletes are required to take a baseline ImPACT test prior to participating in a sport.
The baseline test is valid for the school year and athletes will only be required to take it once per school year.
Testing will be offered before the start of each season along with an educational presentation about head injuries.
ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is the most widely used computer-based testing program in the world and is implemented effectively across high school, collegiate, and professional levels of sport participation. ImPACT is a computerized neurocognitive assessment tool that is used to assess brain function. A baseline is taken under "normal" conditions to show healthy brain function. In the event of a head injury, follow-up tests are taken to help assess severity and recovery. ImPACT is not a diagnostic test.
It is a tool to help in the assessment of head injuries and to aid healthcare professionals in monitoring recovery. For more information, please visit ImPACT's website at www.impacttest.com
