Red Bank Catholic High School is taking an active approach in Concussion management for its athletes by offering Baseline Concussion Testing on a volunteer basis. The purpose of this testing is to establish a baseline objective of cognitive, balance and oculomotor data to be used for comparison purposes in the unfortunate event that the athlete sustains a head injury in or out of sports competition. This information will be used by the athlete's physician or the team physician in determining return to play clearance. Reminder that all athletes suspected of sustaining a concussion during a game will be immediately removed from play. This testing will objectively determine went the athlete is safely ready to play! Without testing, they may be out longer or returned too soon and be susceptible to further injury. It is recommended that the tests are repeated every year to update the accuracy of the data!
