IMPACT Testing

Pre-Season Requirements for Participation in Athletics

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

  1. Take the ImPACT* to get a baseline reading, which will be kept on file.
  2. Submit all medical forms to School Nurse Kathy Cunningham (kcunningham@thayer.org).

ImPACT (Immediate Post Concussion Assessment & Cognitive Test)

All student athletes must take the computerized ImPACT before the first tryout date or they cannot compete.

The test can be taken on a home computer. It usually takes about 20 minutes to complete, and the results are submitted to Thayer electronically. This is a simple cognitive assessment that effectively helps Thayer's athletic trainers to...

  • Objectively measure the existence and severity of a concussion (if an athlete should sustain a head injury of any kind)
  • Determine when a student-athlete can safely return to play

Before beginning the ImPACT, you should...

  • 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.
  • Close out of all applications except ImPACT and your Internet browser.
  • Turn 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.)
  • Settle into an environment free of noise and other distractions. You will need to concentrate and exercise your memory. So...

    • No Talking
    • No cell phones
    • No sound on the computer

Note: Students should be supervised by a parent when taking the test.

Steps to begin the test

  1. Launch the baseline test at https://www.impacttestonline.com/htmllauncher/
  2. Insert the Customer ID Code: E44CVM3UES (case sensitive).
  3. Choose the language to take the test in (English).
  4. From the PULL down menu select Thayer Academy.
  5. Note: # of years completed in school = your year in September minus 1. (So if you're entering 9th grade in September the number of years you've completed is 8.)

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

FAQs

What is a team parent?

Historically at the varsity level, captains’ parents plan team events and organize a food/drink schedule. However, these events and schedules are welcome at all levels (JV and Thirds) so that these athletes can have the same bonding experiences. If a parent is interested in helping the team in this manner, please reach out to the coach. Click here to read about Team/Captain's Parent Guidelines.

What are team dinners?

Team dinners are a wonderful tradition at Thayer in which team members gather at a student’s house, a restaurant, or Thayer as a team bonding experience. Often organized at the varsity level, they are welcome at the sub-varsity level as well. If you are interested in hosting or simply coordinating a dinner, please reach out the team parent or coach. Events include potluck dinners, pizza or pasta parties, and team breakfasts before a game. Please feel free to reach out to all parents for their assistance or contributions.

Please note that team dinners are not TA sponsored events. Thayer does not organize these dinners or transport students back and forth.

What is an End-of-Season Team Banquet?

These are banquets arranged by team parents to celebrate the season. They are held at local restaurants, students’ homes, or at Thayer. Most often organized at the varsity level, they are welcome at the sub-varsity level as well. If you are interested in helping with a banquet, please reach out to the team parent or coach. Please feel free to reach out to all parents for their assistance or contributions as these should not be a financial burden to team parents.

Please note that banquets are not TA sponsored events. Thayer does not organize these dinners or transport students back and forth.

Where can I find team rosters?

Team rosters can be found on each individual Team Page. You can access all Team Pages via the Parents Section, under Athletics (thayer.org/parents/athletics), or in the main Athletics section of thayer.org under “Teams, Schedules & Results” (thayer.org/athletics/teams-schedules-results).

Where can I find my child’s team schedule?

How do I sign up for Athletic Alerts for my phone and computer?

Does Thayer provide uniforms?

Yes. Uniforms are issued prior to the first game and will be handled by the coach. Uniforms should be turned in at the end of the season.

How do I buy sports-specific athletic gear?

Does Thayer provide transportation to and from games?

Your child will be transported by Thayer to and from their sporting events. If you wish to drive your child or have them drive themselves, you must ask the AD and the coach for permission. You are allowed to drive your child home from a game or your child can leave with another student after informing the coach.

Does my child have a locker in the locker room?

All Thayer students are assigned a locker in the locker room. Please speak with staff in the Campus Store for more information and to be assigned a padlock for this locker.

Does Thayer wash uniforms?

Yes. Students can drop off dirty uniforms in the Campus Store/Equipment Room. If it is closed, there is a chute outside the Campus Store that the uniform can be dropped into. Clean uniforms can be picked up the next day in the Campus Store.

Does Thayer provide snacks and drinks for the practices and games?

Thayer does not provide food or drinks for practices and games. Team parents often put together a schedule and ask parents to contribute. The free online scheduler “Sign Up Genius” is a great resource for parents to use. If you would like to put together a schedule, please reach out to the coach.

You can access all Team Pages via the Parents Section, under Athletics (thayer.org/parents/athletics), or in the main Athletics section of thayer.org under “Teams, Schedules & Results” (thayer.org/athletics/teams-schedules-results).
