Colts News · ImPACT Concussion Testing


Dear Parents and Athletes:

    We will continue to utilize the ImPACT Concussion Management System for this upcoming season. In preparation for this, I would like to ask all freshmen and junior athletes who participate in contact and collision sports to take a baseline test at home (or any athletes that were not previously baseline tested). I would also like any athlete who was diagnosed with a concussion within the past year to take a new baseline test. The baseline test will serve as a benchmark for your cognitive abilities and concussion symptoms prior to you suffering a concussion. Each baseline is good for two years. This allows us to compare your results to “normative data” for your age group.

    There will be NO summer testing this year. It is mandatory for all athletes participating in a sport at Cloverleaf High School to have a baseline test on file prior to starting in-season practice. If you are unable to take it at home, time can be arranged during pre-season. However, PLEASE try and get this done before the season starts.

Most invalid tests occur because you have not read/followed the directions or you tried to speed through it. If your test is deemed invalid, you will be required to take it again.

    If you are unsure if you need to take the ImPACT test prior to the 2020-2021 season, please e-mail me at mackenzie.simmons@cloverleaflocal.org and I can look it up for you.
