ImPact Concussion Baseline Testing

ImPACT concussion baseline test is a test of cognitive function including memory and reaction time.  The purpose of the testing is to determine normal brain function levels that later can be used to help determine when it is appropriate for the athlete to safely return to play in the event of a head injury. 
The  Howard County Public School System procedures required  all student athletes who wish to try out for a contact/collision sport to take ImPACT prior to trying out.  Even if a student is considering trying out for a fall sport, he/she should take advantage of testing in May.  If a student does not take the ImPACT test prior to trying out this could jeopardize his/her chances of making the team.
Fall Contact/Collision Sport is considered one of the following:
·         Football
 ·        Field Hockey
·         Soccer
·         Cheerleading
·         Volleyball
Students and/or Parents must sign up for testing
