Concussion Baseline Testing (ImPACT Testing) Dates Announced…
Submitted By Craig Metzger on Thursday, September 21, 2017
For second year Atom players through Midget, SMHA is pleased to announce that we are again using the ImPACT concussion test as part of our concussion management program and the baseline testing dates have been set.

SMHA continues to be among the leaders in our area in addressing the important issue of concussions as this is the 5th year of our active concussion management program. We’re pleased to be able to offer a complimentary baseline ImPACT test to SMHA players as just one of our efforts to keep our athletes safe.

SMHA’s concussion management program includes:
* Complimentary access to the ImPACT test
* Access to follow up testing and return to play assessment by a physician from Seaforth experienced with the ImPACT testing process.
*Clear return to play protocol

All players age 2nd Year Atom and older are strongly encouraged to participate.

The first step involves having your young athlete complete the online baseline test.

Parents are encouraged to attend with their child on the test night to discuss our program and concussion management.

As we did last season, the testing will be offered in a group format at Seaforth Public School in the computer lab beside the library on:

Tuesday, September 26th starting at
6:30 pm: Atoms (2007 birth year) and Pee Wees
7:30 pm:  Bantams and Midgets who can't make Thursday, Sept. 28th.

Thursday, September 28th starting at
6:30 pm:  Bantams and Midgets
7:30 pm:  Atoms (2007 birth year) and Pee Wees who couldn't make Tuesday, Sept. 26th. 

* In preparation for the test please ensure that your child brings their current weight, height and the dates of any previous concussions with them.

* The test takes approximately 25 minutes and is fun to complete.

* The test does require a certain level of reading and comprehension.
