FAQ’s

Who needs to take this?
All incoming Freshmen, New Students, Juniors  or Any athlete who did not take the test during the 2015-2016 school year.  If you have questions please contact your athletic trainer or the athletic office.

I did not get a confirmation email how do I know if I’ve sign-up up?
You will not get a confirmation email, however a day or two before testing you will receive a reminder email.  If you have questions please contact your athletic trainer.

What is this for?
The ImPACT test is a baseline test of brain function that will be used if an athlete sustains a concussion to help determine if any brain function is impaired.

I took this test 2 years ago so why do I need to take it again?
Because brains in high school develop at such a quick rate it is recommended that athletes be tested every 2 years to ensure that the baseline test reflects where the brain is currently functioning.

How long will the test take and do I need to bring anything?
The test will take about one hour start to finish. Parents to do NOT need to stay for the test and you do not need to bring anything with you.
