**Note: Clarification on the IMPACT Concussion Testing Consent/Waiver Form Requirement:
ALL student-athletes must submit a completed IMPACT Concussion Testing Consent/Waiver Form once per school year. If you have not already done so, the IMPACT Concussion Testing Consent/Waiver form should be submitted, along with the required PIAA CIPPE (Sports Physical) forms, by November 10th. The PIAA CIPPE and IMPACT Consent/Waiver forms MUST Be submitted prior to participation
in tryouts/practices.

To clarify our requirements for IMPACT Concussion testing, we do not test all athletes each year. We administer baseline tests to our freshmen, junior and new student-athletes. We require the IMPACT Consent/Waiver form to be on file for each athlete in case post-injury testing is needed during the season. Freshmen and juniors that need to be tested will be notified by their coach and/or the Athletic Office and testing times will be scheduled early in the season. Completion of the IMPACT baseline test is NOT required prior to participation, only the submission of the IMPACT Concussion Consent/Waiver form is required before tryouts/practices.

Any questions or concerns on these topics should be directed to the UHS Athletic Office at (610) 347-1600, Ext. 3082.
