WHO NEEDS TO TAKE A BASELINE TEST?
a) ALL ATHLETES who took their last baseline for Spring 2015-16 or prior to that, or have never taken it.
b) Players who suffered a concussion since their last baseline test. Post-injury ImPACT testing that was done is not the same as a new baseline.
Otherwise, baseline tests are good for 2 years.
