‘Think Head First’ baseline testing

PR

Park City High School (PCHS) and Think Head First are offering school athletes and their parents the opportunity to sign up for concussion education (parents and athletes) and baseline testing (athletes) at the PCHS counseling office at either 1 p.m. or 2:30 p.m. on Monday, July 30, or Tuesday, July 31, according to Karen Wellman of Think Head First

In the hour-long program:

  • participants will view an informational video
  • learn signs and symptoms of concussion and the protocol for concussion care
  • each athlete will take a baseline test
  • all test results will be reviewed individually for validity and parents will receive the results with an explanation of the test report
  • results will be stored in the Think Head First database for future access

    All freshmen athletes and other new players are encouraged to attend, along with other players who tested more than a year ago. If you’re not sure if the previous athlete’s previous results are still valid, you can contact Wellman at admin@thinkheadfirst.com.

    To sign up, e-mail Wellman and include the session you’d like to attend, the name and age of your child. You will receive an email confirmation and online payment information. The cost is $30 per athlete.
