U15, Varsity and JV players: Karin Shelstad, Mpls Lacrosse our athletic trainer, has made arrangements for concussion baseline testing (see details on the testing below). We offered a session last Monday but also have this Monday, April 21 available from 4 - 4:45 pm. The testing takes about 30 minutes - it is a computer test. Please arrive as close to 4:00 pm as possible.
Players that tested in the last two years do not need to be retested. The cost is $5 per athlete - please bring along with you that night.
If you have not gone through concussion testing in the last two years, it is recommended you do so. The test is very useful and serves as a baseline in the event of a concussion. The test:
• Measures player symptoms
• Measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed and reaction time
• Reaction time measured to a 1/100th of second
• Assists clinicians and athletic trainers in making difficult return-to-play decisions
• Provides reliable baseline test information
