The club has arranged for baseline concussion testing for all players. We are using the ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion and Cognitive Testing) system which is used by the NFL, NHL, and other professional sports organizations. Detailed information about the program is available by referencing the "Baseline Concussion Testing" document to the right.
Any questions regarding this program should be directed to Scott Ackerman email@example.com.
“Given the inherent difficulties in concussion management, it is important to manage concussions on an individualized basis and to implement baseline testing and/or post-injury neurocognitive testing. This type of concussion assessment can help to objectively evaluate the concussed athlete’s post-injury condition and track recovery for safe return to play, thus preventing the cumulative effects of concussion. In fact, neurocognitive testing has recently been called the "cornerstone" of proper concussion management by an international panel of sports medicine experts.”
