To be in compliance with a new Nebraska State law on concussion awareness in high school athletics Hay Springs Schools will be testing ALL student athletes grades 6-12.
This MUST be done before competition or practice, again this is for all sports not just contact sports. ALL ATHLETES, ALL SPORTS!
Testing will be done:
Monday, August 6th
at Hay Springs High School
The tests, both a cognitive and a spacial test, will be conducted by the physical therapy department for Box Butte General Hospital.
This test will provide a baseline that athletes must meet before returning to play following a concussion.
It will be difficult to schedule a test after this date and may be expensive. Plan on attending om Monday, August 6th.
