Concussion in Athletics Info for Parents
Concussion Baseline Testing for our grade 5-8 Athletes
Parents: please register your child for this test by sending me an email with your child's name and grade by Monday, August 22nd.
This fall we are conducting a concussion baseline testing of our volleyball and soccer student-athletes during the required Parent Meeting on Aug 23rd from 6-7 pm. We do take injury prevention very seriously and want the best care of our student-athletes.
A presentation by Dr. Aaron Malina from Advocate Condell in Libertyville will be provided for the parents during the meeting. He will explain what a concussion is and its effects on the brain.
This testing is free of charge and keeps GLS in compliance with the new State Senate legislation on concussion injuries to children.
