I•m•P•A•C•T  &  Athletic Tryouts

In order to play team sports, each athlete must do two things before the first tryout date:

  1. Take the ImPACT*
  2. Submit all medical forms to School Nurse Kathy Cunningham (kcunningham@thayer.org).

*ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) is a computerized test that you can take on your home computer. The results are submitted to Thayer electronically. Please follow this link for baseline testing: www.impacttestonline.com/sportsconcussionnewengland.

Before Beginning the ImPACT, Make Sure that You Have...

  • Access to a computer with an external mouse. You have to use a desktop computer, not a laptop because TouchPad and TrackPoint mice don't work for this test.
  • Closed out of any applications other than ImPACT and your Internet browser.
  • Turned off the pop-up blocker in your Internet browser - the test will not launch if the pop-up blocker is on. (Also make sure to turn the pop-up blocker back on when you are finished.)
  • Settled into an environment free of noise and other distractions - you will need to concentrate and exercise your memory.

Steps to Begin the Test

  1. Launch the baseline test.
  2. Insert the Customer ID Code: 94348CF120  (case sensitive).
  3. Choose the language to take the test in (English).
  4. Go.

If you have questions about the ImPACT, please contact Head Athletic Trainer Ellen Malloy (emalloy@thayer.org / 781.664.2273).

For questions about medical forms, contact Health Services Director Kathy Cunningham (kcunningham@thayer.org / 781.664.2299).
