HELP AND SUPPORT
What is the purpose of this test?
The test you will take is an ImPACT baseline test. This test uses the results of an online assessment covering memory, reactions and cognitive skills. The results are processed and stored for you in the event that you experience a concussion. After comparing the baseline test against a post injury test (administered by a medical professional), the physician can assess the severity of the symptoms and recommend a return to play procedure.
Why do I need to do this test?
Your club or team has directed you to this site in an effort to ensure all players are safe and protected when it comes to head injuries in sports. If a player has not fully recovered from a concussion and continues to play sport, they may be at more risk from further problems later in life. This test will enhance the safety of the player in the event of a concussion.

I’ve had a concussion, what do I do now?
USA Sport Online and ImPACT cannot diagnose a concussion – ImPACT is a tool to help with management of recovery. You should always follow your club or team guidelines and seek the help and advice of a medical professional. To correctly use the ImPACT test, follow up with an ImPACT certified doctor who has access to the ImPACT system. Your club should be able to advise who this may be.
If the medical professional does not have access to the baseline, please ask them to make a request and reach out using the sites ‘Contact Us’ feature.
