2. High School Sports - Concussion ImPACT Testing
To participate in high school athletics at TKA, a baseline ImPACT Concussion test is needed. The test is taken every other year, so if you have taken it any time AFTER May 2021, then you will not need to take it again. If you have sustained a concussion last year, then you will need to retake it. The computerized test will take 30-40 minutes. After completing it, the test will be valid for 2 years. Some information for those who have never taken the test:
- You do not need to prepare for the test by studying or anything.
- This is a baseline test that we keep on record. It's here for the Athletic Trainer's knowledge in the event that you sustain a concussion. With the baseline test, we can compare how your brain is functioning while it's concussed versus when it's at a normal (baseline) level.
Please contact Jr. High Athletic Director, Hanna Sandquist, for any questions regarding Pre-Participation Physicals or ImPACT testing.
