IMPACT is a computerized test used to assess the neuro-cognitive abilities of the brain. It is used by medical providers to assess the healing process with a concussion. The first step of IMPACT is to have a baseline test done prior to athletic activity and the potential for concussion. This will then be used to assess the healing process after sustaining a concussion. IMPACT testing is required to be completed for nearly all STA athletes prior to the sports season beginning. There are a few exceptions, being: golf, XC, indoor track, track and field, tennis, and swimming. However, if your child plays one of these sports they are more than welcome to get baseline tested if you would like that to happen. STA provides this testing at no charge and is administered at the school via Ashley Leighton, the STA Athletic Trainer.
