Concussion Policy

In-House Concussion Testing, Fall 2019

Thank you to all participants for testing this fall! 

JHSC requires all athletes born in 2007 or before (U14 and older)--and strongly recommends for all athletes--to participate in an approved pre-concussion assessment prior to on-snow training each season. The Club partners with Watershed Jackson and Teton Physical Therapy and Rehabilitation to administer a comprehensive concussion baseline screening, including several King-Devick and Woodcock-Johnson tests, on several dates in October at the JHSC offices. The cost is $25, which can be paid the night of the testing in cash or check made out to "Watershed Jackson". Concussion testing by Watershed Jackson takes about 15 minutes per athlete.

If you (or your athlete) needs to complete baseline test, they can schedule the IMPACT baseline screening with Urgent Care or through Dr. Sterns Officce at SJMC. Schedule an appointment with Holly Richert at 307-739-7434, then fill out the form below. 

Baseline Testing Verification ​

Concussion baseline testing is required on an annual basis, so all athletes must re-rest each year. If athletes have done the basic "sideline" King-Devick test with their teams this fall, they do not need to re-test that specific test, but they do need to come to the testing night to test in the other three areas. Exceptions include another comprehensive test, like IMPACT. If you have completed a comprehensive concussion baseline test, fill out the "Concussion Verification Form" linked below.
