IMPACT & COGNITIVE TESTING
To ensure the safety of our student-athletes who participate in an interscholastic sport that may put them at a greater risk of sustaining a concussion, Cardinal Newman requires mandatory ImPACT (Imm
As stated in the introductory paragraph of one of the attached informational flyers, ImPACT was "developed by clinical experts who pioneered the field" and "is the most widely used and scientifically- validated computerized, concussion evaluation system. It provides trained clinicians with neurocognitive assessment tools and services that have been medically accepted as state-of-the-art best practices---as part of determining safe return-to-play decisions."ImPACT testing at Cardinal Newman will be conducted by a certified athletic trainer. There is no charge to CN families for this service.
Fall sports athletes playing a winter or spring sport do not have to be re-tested if they already completed a baseline test in June, July, or August. Designated athletes must return the attached Consent & Release Form with the appropriate signatures on the day of testing. Please note that athletes on teams designated for ImPACT testing will not be allowed to practice or compete until ImPACT testing has been completed.
In addition, PLEASE READ the following attached documents: CIF Concussion Info Sheet on recognizing signs and symptoms of concussion; CIF Concussion Return to Play (RTP) Protocol, which explains the specific procedures for RTP if your son/daughter experiences concussion-like symptoms from participating in an interscholastic sport.
