The baseline test is valid for 2 years then it is repeated. This testing must be completed by all athletes who are planning to participate in athletics for any level in any of the 3 athletic seasons in the 2020-2021 school year. If you have taken a baseline test in June 2019 or thereafter you do not need to repeat it this year. This means that everyone else must retest the test. If a student is interested or may be interested in trying out for any sport next year they must complete the test. Testing is mandatory for all athletes every two years. ImPact testing is now taken at home on your own computer. You must use a mouse. The athletic trainer will send you a link to take the test sometime in June.
Also, a copy of a current physical is due to Donna Paulhus prior to the start of the season. A physical will be good for 13 months from the date of issue and will render an athlete ineligible the day after it expires even if that is in the middle of the season.
Please keep this change in mind as you schedule appointments for the next year. Any athlete that has not completed the ImPACT test, does not have a current physical on file in my office or have not completed the permission to participate and registration on FamilyID will not be allowed to participate in tryouts.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact our athletic trainer, Anthony Keeler, at email@example.com
Stay active this summer! Don't take the summer off! You undoubtedly want to lower your chances of incurring an injury while participating in your fall sport. Be prepared for the upcoming fall season. Turn off the television, put down that video game! Maintain a proper diet, drink plenty of fluids, stay active and enjoy the summer.
Students and parents are reminded that prior to participation in any sport the student must have a copy of their current physical (good for 13 months), complete an ImPact test (every two years) and have a yearly parental permission slip on file.
As we have suggested in the past the best time to get a physical required for a student's participation in sports is during the summer. Sometime between May 20 and August 15. This will satisfy the Please include athletic mission statement here.
