Inderkum Athletic Booster Club Supports Proper Concussion Awareness:
Baseline Concussion (Impact) testing and Parent Education Talk
- Player Testing
- Parent Education Talk
This is the same test that was offered in August so if you missed it then here is your chance. Plus, a Mindgame Doctor is coming out to do an educational talk to the parents. This is encouraged for those parents whose athletes were tested and any others interested in the topic of concussions. You will also learn what to do and how to use the test results if your athlete sustains a concussion injury.
Cost for the test is $7 each payable at the test (cash only please). Consent form is required (completed and signed by parent). It is important to include your email address so you can receive information from Mindgame on what to do if your child gets a concussion.
The athletes will take a computer test and have a short presentation on concussions by the Mindgame staff. The entire session will be approximately 1 hour. Please do not hesitate to contact email@example.com if you have any questions.
Impact is the same test used by the NFL, NHL, MLB and many colleges. It is a baseline (before concussion) test that is used to help determine when an athlete who has had a concussion is ready to return to play. Please visit the website to learn more about it. www.sacramentovalleyconcussion.com
NOTE: Several athletes whose test results were invalid in August can retest free of charge since they paid in August. We have attempted to contact these individuals, but if we have not connected and you think this applies to you please contact us and/or come for the retest.
