It's that time of year again!
ImPACT testing is done every 2 years. Freshman year & Junior year. If you are planning on playing a sport during the 2018-2019 school year and are a freshman, junior or new to Holland Christian, you will need to sign up for one of the following dates. There will not be dates during the school year so please make sure this is completed before Fall sports begin in August!
For those of you that do not know, ImPACT testing is a tool in the athletic training toolbox allowing us to help safely return an athlete to their respective sport. Everyone who participates in a sport needs to have a baseline test before beginning their sport. If a concussion is sustained, I will have the athlete retake the ImPACT test within 48-72 hours of the incident. The baseline will allow a comparison to know how well the brain is functioning and when it has returned to functioning normally.
As I stated above, this is just a tool in the toolbox. It is not the sole deciding factor for returning to play. If there are any further questions, do not hesitate to contact the athletic trainer Karianne at [email protected]
Please sign up for a date that is best for you and your schedule. If one of these days absolutely DOES NOT work for you, please let me know and we will find a time that does work!
