Concussion testing for middle school sports

Middle school testing for sports is taking place the week of August 26 at George Fox University. Players are required to either take the ImPACT test or sign the waiver choosing not to do the testing before participating. The waiver will be provided by the coach or at the pool to be picked up.

Each sports has a day for the testing; however, if someone if out of town or cannot make their particular day, they can go on another that same week or do the make up on Sept. 4, same location and times.

Staff will be on hand starting at 3:30 p.m. at GFU Library. Testing starts at 4 p.m., 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

Sept. 4 (Wednesday) Last chance for testing, including make ups
