Dick’s Sporting Goods Supports Concussion Testing in Schools

Dick’s Sporting Goods Chain is supporting Concussion Testing in Schools through a program called Protecting Athletes through Concussion Education (PACE). Dick’s will pay for schoolwide neurocognitive testing of athletes across more than 3,300 schools, totaling more than a million students.

The tests, called ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) are given to athletes before a season to provide a baseline of how their brains, when healthy, perform computer tasks that measure functions like verbal memory, visual memory and reaction time. If an athlete suffers a confirmed or suspected concussion, the test can be administered again to determine if the brain function has deteriorated, in which case players are sidelined until their brains heal.
