Mandatory Impact Testing August 9, 2012
PA has passed new legislation that will be effective July 1, 2012 requiring all student-athletes to recieve concussion and head injury information prior to the start of their season. Additionally, most student-athletes will also be tested using Impact. This will be a baseline test to be used if the athlete sustains a head injury during the season. We have been using this test for the past two years and it will be expanded this year. We have partnered with St Mary's Hospital to provide a video presentation and help administer the Impact testing.
All prospective athletes and all coaches are required to report to Keller Hall on Thursday August 9 at 8:30 am. We anticipate roughly 300 athletes, so we are dividing the program into two sessions:
9:00 am - Session 1: ALL soccer, volleyball, golf, cheer, hockey, cross country, tennis (incoming grades 9 -12) will view the presentation in Keller Hall
ALL football (incoming grades 9- 12) will take the Impact test
10:30 am - Session 2: ALL soccer, volleyball, cheer, and JV/Var hockey will take the Impact test. NOTE: We are not testing Golf, Cross Country, Tennis, or 9th Grade hockey this year.
ALL football (incoming grades 9 -12) will view the presentation in Keller Hall
Coaches must be present with their teams for both the test and the presentation. Coaches will act as room proctors during the Impact testing. All coaches are also required by law to complete a head injury recognition test prior to beginning practice on August 13. We are planning a trade day for coaches to take the test during the summer.
No student may try out or begin practice without having been to this presentation. It is imperative that you inform your teams of this so they can schedule their time to be present on August 9. Anyone who is not present will be required to view a makeup session at a later date, but is not eligible to begin practice until this is done.
Dates and times and NEW FORMS will be posted on our website soon, please see Handouts for downloads.

Pocono Cup Camp
We are going to hold off on collecting registration at this time. The camp may be canceled due to construction on campus at Marywood U. I am awaiting on the final decision and will let everyone know when I know.
A schedule will be posted on our website on a weekly basis.
