UPDATE AND CHANGES TO CONCUSSION BASELINE TESTING
Tuesday, October 31, 2023
Good Noonday MAST Athletes and Families:
We had to make a few changes to the ImPACT Concussion Baseline Testing schedule this morning.
First, we are asking Washburn and Southwest students to SIGN UP for their testing session. Southwest only has 18 testing stations so we want people to sign up for 1 of 18 testing spots available on each date. Washburn also has limited testing facilities so only 20 athletes can sign up for each testing date offered. There is plenty of space for the Roosevelt athletes to test on Wednesday. No need to sign up, but please show up. If you cannot make it, please contact Ms. Sonya Eikum, the athletic trainer at Roosevelt to schedule testing for yourself.
Second, we are canceling the November 8th testing date at Southwest and replacing it with testing on Monday, November 6th. If the SW Volleyball team wins their section championship tomorrow night, the SW Athletic Trainer, Ms. GleichWacher, will be need to attend the team’s first game of the State Tournament on the afternoon of the 8th. Go Lakers!
Third, attached is a roster of everyone who needs to take the concussion baseline test. If you were on the team last year and you have registered to ski with MAST this year, but your name is NOT on the list, you do NOT need to take the test this year.
I am working with the Washburn Athletic Trainer, Mr. Dahle, to set up testing at Washburn. He just needs to confirm that we can use the testing space. Our TENTATIVE DATES AND TIMES ARE:
1. Monday, November 6 at 3:30PM
2. Wednesday, November 8 at 3:30PM
Location: Orange Lab located in the media center on the top floor of Washburn High School.
I WOULD ASK WASHBURN STUDENTS TO WAIT TO SIGN UP FOR TESTING AT WASHBURN UNTIL YOU RECEIVE A FOLLOW UP EMAIL FROM ME CONFIRMING THAT WE HAVE THE SPACE RESERVED FOR TESTING.
Please follow this link to sign up for a day and time to take your concussion baseline test: Alpine Sign Up For Concussion Baseline Testing
I would ask the Washburn students to wait until you hear back from me later today. I need to confirm that the testing facility is available on the 6th and 8th. I will know more after 4PM today.
Finally, here is a reminder about tomorrow's testing for Roosevelt athletes at Roosevelt.
Sanford and Roosevelt Alpine Skiers Concussion Testing
When: Wednesday, November 8 at 4PM (for middle school and high school athletes)
Trainer: Sonya Eikum
Directions: My office is door 3A from the outside, or 159 from the inside. Walk past Door 4 and you will see a ramp. Go up the ramp. My door is at the top of the ramp. We will meet at my office and then go up to the computer lab together and take the test.
Sorry for the changes, but this will be the first of many this season. I am certain of that.
Life Character Skill Lesson: Be Flexible and Adapt to the Terrain.
Reach out me or your high school athletic trainer if you have questions.
