Concussion Baseline Testing

The safety and well-being of our players is always a top priority with South Delta Minor Hockey. Once again, SDMHA is proud to announce its continued support of the cognitive baseline test tool from Cogstate (formerly Axon Sports).

A baseline test is a test that is taken before any concussion has occurred. Baseline testing data is valuable in determining the athlete’s pre-injury (normal) level of functioning.  Baseline testing is a best practice in concussion management and is recommended by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA), the International Consensus on Concussion in Sport, and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP).

If your player is eligible, and you wish to take advantage of this program, please email and our Risk Manager, Scott Emsley, will send you a free concussion baseline voucher code and all the pertinent details.

This voucher code is required to obtain your free baseline test.

This important Concussion Management tool must be completed before any head injuries occur therefore we recommend you test your son or daughter as soon as possible.

Thank you,

Scott Emsley
