Physicals and Forms
For Coaches Only: Coach Confirmation of Review Form
Dear Parkland Parents and Athletes,
I would first like to start off by saying the entire St. Luke’s Sports Medicine staff hopes everyone is doing well and staying safe and healthy during these troubling times. I am writing you all in light of the upcoming zone changes that will hopefully allow us to begin to return to some norm. I am writing to discuss the ImPACT Test baselines as we begin to plan our return. Parkland School District requires that all new, or incoming high school athlete take a baseline ImPACT Test prior to their first season at the High School level. Typically, this is done either during physicals, before the season, or more recently for the incoming 9th graders before the end of the year. However, due to current COVID-19 pandemic this will be completed at home. This baseline testing is used to establish a benchmark score when a player is in his or her non-concussed or “normal” state. Below I have outlined various areas that will go over the test such as what is the test, how to login, and common questions that we receive during the exam.
About the Test
The ImPACT Test is used as a tool to assess the return to activity following a concussion. The test is taken online through ImPACT and is computerized. It will take roughly 30-45 minutes. Before taking the test, we ask that if you have a mouse to please plug it into the computer being used and use it for the exam. We also ask that the athlete go someplace that is quiet and free of distractions while taking it (including not having their cellphone on sound/by them). The test measures area of brain activity including: Reaction time, Verbal and visual memory, Motor speed, Impulse control, and any symptoms the test taker is experiencing at that time. ImPACT is not used as a diagnostic tool or a preventative measure and should never be used as a substitute for medical treatment.
