NOTE: New IHSA Protocol for Concussion Management will be in place at Aquin for the 2016-17 school year. When the required components are set, they will be outlined here. Listed below is the information for 2015-16 as reference.
♦ ImPACT Concussion Testing Information
In 2013, Aquin partnered with Monroe Clinic. One of the bonuses of this partnership is the ImPACT Concussion Testing Program. This program uses a computer-generated baseline test which all of our athletes must take. If an Aquin athlete is diagnosed with a concussion, he or she must pass the 'post-concussion test' administered by a Monroe Clinic Trainer (other criteria may also be established by the trainer or coach) before being allowed back on the field or court. Baseline tests must be retaken every 2 years.
We were fortunate to incur 'no charge' for the first year of ImPACT. We now must pay $10 per baseline test.
