Melissa Schools will offer baseline ImPACT testing for student athletes for the first time this August, giving the district an additional evaluation tool for concussion management.
Baseline ImPACT testing is optional, but recommended for any Melissa student athlete playing a collision sport. This includes volleyball, football, basketball, softball, baseball, soccer and wrestling.
Through individualized baseline ImPACT test results, doctors and athletic trainers can make an objective diagnosis based on a student athlete’s skills, and potentially have the child back on the field in a safer manner, and sooner.
ImPACT testing opportunities will be offered at Melissa Schools the first week of August. Testing dates and times will be announced at www.melissaisd.org.
