Bridgman Athletics is very concerned about the physical well-being of all our athletes. We ask student-athletes and/or parents to report any suspected injury to either a Coach, the Athletic Trainer (Emily, 556-7150) or the Athletic Director (466-0227). Below are some helpful, educational resources on various athletic-related injuries:
- Parents Guide to Concussions (printable document from the National Federation of State High School Associations)
- Concussion in Sports – What You Need to Know (video)
Note: Bridgman High School is using the ImPact test this year to help with the diagnosis of, and return from, concussions. Information on ImPact testing can be found at www.impacttest.com.
All soccer, basketball and football players will be pre-tested to establish a baseline test score should the need arise to reevaluate the athlete during the season. We can also pre-test any other athlete that desires to have it done. We strongly encourage athletes that have experienced a concussion in the past to take the test.
If you wish to test or have your child tested, please contact the Athletic Director or the Athletic Trainer to set up a time to take the test. The test takes approximately 30 minutes to complete.
