Players vs Coaches Recap

This Friday, March 31st, we held our first Players vs Coaches Showcase.  After a very busy and fun Winter Season, this was the perfect way to mark the official end of the Winter and beginning of the Spring season!

A Head of the Game
Start Smart. Finish Strong

In the United States, over 300,000 sports-related concussions soccer annually. and the likelihood of suffering a concussion while playing  a contact sport is estimated to be as high as 19% per year of play/  More than 62,000 concussions are sustained each year in high school contact sports.

Dear Parents,

Having a Baseline test in place is an invaluable tool used by doctors to determine the severity of a concussion and to provide proper treatment. Along with physical assessment, ImPACT testing puts a strong foundation in place to manage the concussion properly and return your student athlete to school and to play.  ImPACT testing is a computerized neurocognitive exam that measures your child's cognitive abilities such as recall, reaction time and pattern recognition.  The test takes approximately 35 minutes to administer. Test scores on ImPACTS secure site and are password protected.  Test results are provided to ImPACT Specialists if an injury is suspected.  Test scores are then compared to the baseline test.  Post injury testing and visits are provided by Credential ImPACT Consultants listed on the ImPACT website. BASELINE TESTING IS $45 AND IS VALID FOR 2 YEARS. South Shore Select will cover this fee for any of our U11 and Up players who get a baseline test though Jeanine Donato.  

Please contact Jeanine Donato directly to book your appointment today.
