This season we handled concussion baseline testing at equipment handout. If you weren't able to have your child tested, we will have a health care professional at our practice field on Thursday, August 1, 2019 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM. The test is not a requirement, but it is something we feel strongly about and suggest that you do. NOTE, a parent will need to be present during the test to fill out paperwork and sign papers.
What is baseline testing?
Baseline testing is a pre-season exam conducted by a trained health care professional. Results from baseline testing can be used if an athlete has a suspected concussion. Comparing post-injury test results to baseline test results can assist health care professionals in identifying the effects of the injury and making a more informed return to school and play decision.
If your child hasn't been examined and you would like them tested on Thursday, please let your child's coach know. There is no charge for you, the parent. The Little Dukes Football organization is paying for this service.
