Updated Thursday May 5, 2016 by Guilford Youth Football and Cheerleading.

Dear GYF Parents,‚Äč

Guilford Youth Football is proud to consider its league proactive with the safety of our players. We are passing along an offer for baseline concussion testing, strictly to GYF registered football players. Should your child sustain a concussion, football related or otherwise, this test provides an additional resource for Concussion Management Specialists to utilize when determining the athlete's readiness for "return to play". the test is NOT mandatory and we encourage all parents to fully research the details of ImPACT testing ahead of time.

Plan Ahead for the Upcoming Football Season

If your child is approaching 12 years of age or older, we are happy to bring you a limited-time offer on Baseline Concussion Screenings. The Shoreline Concussion Center of Guilford Pediatrics is offering discounted screenings to GYF players during the months of May and June (May 1 - June 31, 2016).

The ImPACT Test

This test is the neurocognitive ImPACT test. Keep in mind, no neurocognitive test is perfect, they all have limitations, but the ImPACT test is a tool clinicians can use to better determine the athlete's readiness for "return to play". Any objective data the clinician can obtain to make this decision is always helpful.

ImPACT has the largest database of clinical research (more than 215 peer-reviewed and 145 independent studies) on concussion management. ImPACT is used by the majority of the teams in the National Hockey League, National Football League, Major League Baseball, WWE, Irish and South African Rugby teams, 7,400 high schools, 1,000 colleges and universities, and more than 900 clinical centers.

Cost

The usual cost for this test runs from $200-$250 and is NOT covered by any insurance plans. Shoreline Concussion is offering to administer the test to your child for $50 or $75, depending on your primary pediatric practice. The results will be shared with you and stored for future usage.
