Please see below for Fall ImPACT dates and times. In an effort to streamline test taking times have been broken up by sport and school. All testing will be held at the Stevens High School Library. If there are questions please contact your coach or the Athletic Trainer.
If these days and times do NOT work with your schedule you need to contact the Athletic Trainer to set up an alternate time. Athletes will NOT be cleared to play until they have completed an ImPACT test.
Sports Physicals and ImPACT Baseline Testing Info
Sports Physicals and ImPACT baseline testing are done on an annual basis. Until completed along with registration on Family ID, athletes will not be eligible to participate in CMS or SHS sports. New athletes and incoming freshmen are expected to bring a copy of their most current physical.
If an athlete does not have a valid physical, they will be considered ineligible to participate until a new one is completed and handed in to their designated coach, the school nurse, or the Athletic Trainer. This is to ensure athlete safety.
If student-athletes cannot get an appointment for a physical until after their current one is expired there is 14 days in which they can participate. In order to participate during this time the athlete needs to prove that they have an appointment scheduled and their doctor needs to sign off that they are allowed to play.
ImPACT tests are completed prior to the start of each season for all sports as scheduled by the Athletic Trainer. Once an athlete has taken their baseline at the start of their first season of the school year, the baseline scores are valid for the rest of the year. They are not repeated at the start of every season. Look out for announcements on our home page for testing times prior to the start of each sports season!
