Attended Preseason Meeting
The Virginia Beach City Public Schools is utilizing an innovative concussion management program for our student-athletes in certain sports having a greater risk for head injuries (cheerleading, field hockey, football, basketball, gymnastics, wrestling, baseball, soccer, softball, diving, high jump, pole vault).  The program is called ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) and involves an online computerized exam that each athlete takes prior to an athletic season.  In order to participate in any of the sports listed above, student athletes must be tested in the ImPACT program during the preseason.  If the athlete is believed to have suffered a concussion during participation, the exam is taken again and the data is compared to the baseline test.  This information is then used as a tool to assist the athletic training staff and treating physicians in determining the extent of the injury, monitoring recovery, and in making safe return-to-play decisions.  If an injury of this nature occurs, we will be in contact with you.  Post-concussion tests will be taken under our supervision at school.  Return-to-play decisions must be made by a physician.  Founded by the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center’s Sports Concussion Program, this software system is utilized throughout professional sports and at a number of colleges and high schools across the country.  Additional information can be found at  The exam takes about 25-30 minutes and is non-invasive.  The program is set up in a “video game” type format.  It tracks neurocognitive information such as memory, reaction time, brain processing speed, and concentration.  For example, in one part of the exam, a dozen common words appear one at a time on the screen for about one second each.  The athlete is then later asked what words were displayed.  It is a simple exam and most who take it enjoy the challenge of the test.  One of the reasons concussions are so dangerous is a condition called Second Impact Syndrome.  If an athlete sustains a second concussion before completely recovering from the first, the results can be deadly.  We understand the competitive nature of sports; however, our top priority is ALWAYS the health and safety of our athletes.  Please sign and return this form indicating permission for your son/daughter to take this test.  If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact your school’s athletic trainer.
If you have questions regarding the ImPACT program, please contact:

I have read and understood the above information and give permission for my son/daughter to participate in the ImPACT Concussion Management Program. VBCPS may release the ImPACT (Immediate Post-concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) results to my child’s primary care physician, neurologist, or other treating physician, as requested.
Information for Parents/Guardians
Parents/Guardians of Athletes: In order to help protect the student athletes of Virginia Beach City Public Schools, the Virginia General Assembly, in accordance with Senate Bill 652 (Concussion in Student-Athletes), has mandated that all student athletes, parents and coaches follow the Virginia Beach City Public Schools Concussion Policy. Please read and sign this fact sheet and return it to your school’s Student Activities Coordinator prior to the first date of competition. This form must be reviewed and signed on a yearly basis. 
What is a Concussion? 
A concussion is a brain injury and all brain injuries are serious. It is characterized by an onset of impairment of cognitive and/or physical functioning, and is caused by a blow to the head, face or neck, or a blow to the body that causes a sudden jarring of the head (i.e. a helmet to the head, being knocked to the ground). A concussion can occur with or without a 
loss of consciousness, and proper management is essential to the immediate safety and long-term future of the injured individual. A repeat concussion that occurs before the brain recovers from the first – usually within a short period of time (hours, days, or weeks) – can slow recovery or increase the likelihood of having long term problems. In rare cases, repeat concussion can result in edema (brain swelling), permanent brain damage, and even death. 
What are the signs and symptoms of a concussion? 
*Signs observed by teammates, coaches, 
parents/guardians include:
1. Appears dazed or stunned 
2. Is confused about assignments and positions 
3. Forgets instructions and answers questions slowly or 
4. Is unsure of game, score, or opponent 
5. Loss of balance/coordination and moves clumsily 
6. Shows mood, behavior, or personality changes 
7. Cannot recall events prior to hit or fall 
8. Cannot recall events after hit or fall 
*Symptoms reported by athlete may include one or 
more of the following:
1. Headache or “pressure” in head 
2. Nausea/vomiting 
3. Balance problems or dizziness 
4. Sensitivity to light or sound/noise 
5. Feeling sluggish, hazy, groggy, or foggy 
6. Difficulty with concentration, short-term memory and/or 
7. Double vision or changes in vision 
8. Irritability 
9. Just not “feeling right” or is “feeling down”

How can you help your child prevent a concussion? 
Every sport is different, but there are steps your child can take to protect themselves from concussion: 
• Ensure that they follow their coach’s rules for safety and the rules of the sport. 
• Encourage them to practice good sportsmanship at all times. 
• Make sure they properly wear the right protective equipment that is required for their sport (such as helmets, 
padding, shin guards, eye and mouth guards). 
• Learn the signs and symptoms 

What should you do if you think your child has a concussion? 

1. Seek medical attention right away. A licensed health care professional will be able to decide how serious the 
concussion is and when it is safe for your child to return to sports. 
2. Keep your child out of play. Concussions take time to heal. Don’t let your child return to play until a licensed health 
care professional gives clearance to return. Children who return to play too soon-while the brain is still healing – risk 
a greater chance of having a second concussion. Second or later concussions can be very serious. This can lead to 
prolonged recovery, or even to severe brain swelling (second impact syndrome) with devastating and even fatal 
3. Tell your child’s coach about any recent concussions. School personnel should be notified if your child had a recent 
concussion in any sport. Your child’s coach may not know about a concussion your child received in another sport or 
activity unless you tell the coach. 
4. Refer to the Concussion Graduated Return to Play guidelines below to familiarize yourself with the process used to 
determine when it is safe for your child to gradually return to full activity.
• When an athlete has been evaluated by an athletic trainer and/or a physician for a concussion the following graduated functional return to play will be followed. The return to play progression will not begin until the athlete is completely symptom free. Each stage is a minimum 24 hour period; therefore the return to play progression will be a minimum of 4-5 days. 
• If the athlete experiences any symptoms, at any point during the rehabilitation stages, the progression will stop immediately and the cycle will resume at the previous asymptomatic rehabilitation stage after 24 hours of rest. If symptoms continue to occur, the athlete will be referred back to the physician for a follow up evaluation.
Rehabilitation Stage Functional Exercise Objective of Each Stage
Stage 1 – No Activity Physical/Cognitive Rest Recovery
Stage 2 – Light Aerobic Exercise Walking, Swimming, Bike Increase Heart Rate
Stage 3 – Sport-Specific Exercise  Running Drills, NO Contact Add Movement
Stage 4 – Non-Contact Drills  Complex Drills, Resistance Training Exercise, Coordination, 
Cognitive Load/IMPACT
Stage 5 – Full Contact Following Clearance, Normal 
Training Activities
Restore Confidence, Assess 
Functional Skills by Coaches
Stage 6 – Return to Play Normal Game Play

• The treatment, management, and return to play determinations will be individualized to each athlete and dependent on circumstances of each specific case and injury. ImPACT testing may also be utilized in the return to play determination, treatment and evaluation of concussions. 
• A safe return to play is the ultimate goal regardless of age and level of play. 
• After being released for participation by a physician, the athlete must also be cleared by the school’s athletic trainer before beginning Stage 2 of the return to play progression above. The student-athlete must pass all six stages under the supervision of the certified athletic trainer before being allowed to return to play.
