NOTE: These are strictly pre-participation exams to meet MSHSL requirements. The sports physical does not replace your annual checkup or child wellness exam with your primary care provider for immunizations and important anticipatory health guidance. If the student-athlete requires further medical follow-up prior to clearance for athletic participation, the student-athlete will be referred to the appropriate medical provider.
Additional Testing Available On-Site During Your Sports Physicals
We will be offering additional testing that is optional for you to take part of during your pre-participation exam. Complete the form below to reserve your time.
ImPACT Baseline Testing – $5
ImPACT is often referred to as “the concussion test” however, the diagnosis of concussion is based on a thorough medical history and exam findings. ImPACT is a useful tool that can provide an objective assessment of the brain’s cognitive function and processing speed. The Sport Concussion Team at TRIA evaluates all aspects of recovery before return-to-play is allowed. The ImPACT Baseline test is designed to provide an objective measure of cognitive functioning prior to a concussion. Memory, concentration and processing speeds are tested and assigned a baseline score. If the athlete later sustains a concussion, it is recommended they receive a post-injury ImPACT test within 72 hours. Results can be compared to baseline scores. This can aid the medical team in concussion management. The ImPACT test takes about 30 minutes to complete
Movement Screening – Free
TRIA Athletic Trainers will be offering free movement screens for student-athletes. The screen will consist of functional movements such as a squat. Results are used to identify asymmetries, imbalances or weakness in movement patterns that could identify potential risk for injury. Participants will receive a home exercise program specific to their results.
