Concussion Information & Forms
Nationwide data continues to show that many catastrophic head injuries are a direct result of injured athletes returning to play too soon, not having fully recovered from the first head injury. Additionally, the Centers for Disease Control reports that approximately 3 million sports and recreational concussion occur every year.
California law mandates that all coaches must receive training on concussions. The training may be fulfilled through the free, online course available through the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS).
Neurocognitive Testing for SR Athletes
SR Athletics has begun Neurocognitive Testing for all Winter Sport Athletes. This testing process establishes a baseline for each and every athlete. In the event of a possible injury the examining physician will have this data to compare during assessment. This program is being administered by our Athletic Trainer through our partnership with Marin General.
