Mandatory Athletics Concussion Program – February 15, 2017
PA passed legislation effective July 1, 2012 requiring all student-athletes to receive concussion and head injury information prior to the start of their season. Additionally, most student-athletes will also be tested using Impact. This will be a baseline test to be used if the athlete sustains a head injury during the season. We have been using this test for the past two years and it will be expanded this year. We have partnered with St Mary Hospital and Bucks County IU to provide a Powerpoint presentation and help administer the Impact testing.
All prospective Spring athletes and all coaches are required to report to Keller Hall on Wednesday February 15 at 2:30 pm.
At the conclusion of the presentation, all Boys Lacrosse players will take the Impact test in the West library. Testing takes about 30-45 min. and should be done no later than 5:00 PM.
Any student who took the Impact test prior to the Fall or Winter season does not need to take it again.
Parents are recommended to attend and the community is invited to attend this presentation.
