Posted on 06/26/2014

The first round of baseline concussion screenings for students participating in junior high and high school sports in the 2014-2015 school year will be held Saturday, June 28, from 8:00 am - 2:30 pm . The testing will be done by appointment only at Apple Physical Therapy, 3912 10th St. SE #101, Puyallup. Call 253-604-0679 to schedule an appointment. A $10 concussion screening fee is charged by Apple Physical Therapy. Cash and checks are welcome forms of payment.

 

Participants in the following sports need to complete this testing every two years.

  • Football
  • Boys and Girls Soccer
  • Boys and Girls Basketball
  • Boys and Girls Wrestling

 

Athletes do not need a baseline concussion screening to participate in high-impact sports if they had one performed (and have records of the results) by a licensed health care provider trained in concussion management in the past two years.

  

Additional testing will be made by individual appointment at Apple Physical Therapy and on future Saturdays in August prior to the start of fall sports.

 

Athletes participating in other sports are able to sign up for baseline testing but are NOT required to do so by the Puyallup School District.
