Woodland Hills Soccer to offer Neurocognitive Baseline Concussion Testing

Woodland Hills Soccer is pleased to announce that we have arranged Neurocognitive (Concussion) Baseline Testing with UPMC Sports Concussion Program at CCAC Boyce Campus on Saturday Mach 15. We hope that you will take this opportunity to have your student athlete baseline tested.

What is Neurocognitive Baseline Concussion Testing?

  • The ImPACT® neurocognitive baseline test is a computer-based test that establishes a benchmark score when an athlete is in his or her non-concussed or “normal” state.
  • The program known as ImPACT® (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing), checks neurocognitive function through working memory, visual memory, verbal memory, attention, reaction time, mental speed and processing speed.
  • The ImPACT® neurocognitive baseline test DOES NOT evaluate the athlete for a concussion, identify past concussion(s), prevent future concussions or determine if the athlete is predisposed to a concussion.
  • The results of the ImPACT® neurocognitive baseline test become part of a comprehensive clinical evaluation to determine the severity and the required medical treatment for the student athlete, should a concussion occur.

Who is eligible to participate? What is the cost?

  • To participate, you must be at least 10-years-old on the day of the testing.
  • Any Woodland Hills Soccer Athlete or their family member may participate.
  • The participant must not have had a concussion in the last 30 days.
  • The cost to participate is FREE thanks to the Pittsburgh Penguins Foundation.
