ImPact Testing is a mandatory, precautionary step we take to ensure the health and well-being of Spartan Athletes. Every two years, Spartan athletes will be tested to ensure current data is on file.
ImPact Testing is a precautionary measure that allows our athletic trainer to gather a baseline set of data regarding each student's brain activity. If there is ever a head injury, our athletic trainer, along with a family physician, would be able to compare the brain activity from the baseline assessment to the current brain activity, post head injury.
ImPact Testing is a requirement at SMS. Jae Clark, our trainer, will set up dates and locations for students to spend about 30 minutes taking their baseline test. At SMS, all 7th grade athletes will be baseline tested. Additionally, any student in 8th grade that has transferred in to SMS will be tested, as well.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact Jae_Clark@sdst.org
