Baseline Concussion Testing

If you are in need of a baseline concussion test (required for sports participation)...

  • We recommend the ImPACT test as the preferred form of baseline testing. If you had an assessment completed at a Concussion Center or your PCP please email the "Passport ID" to smithj@penntrafford.org (testing must have been completed within the last two years to be valid). Click on ImPACT test if you prefer to take the online version.

  • If you can not secure an appointment for an ImPACT test we offer the Standardized Assessment of Concussion available only with the athletic trainers, Please email smithj@penntrafford.org to secure your date and time, we ask that YOU DO NOT JUST SHOW UP!


Registering for Sports on Family ID

  • If you already have a Family ID account then you just need to sign up for your sport and complete the required information to be added to that team roster.

  • If you do not have a Family ID account then you must register your athlete(s). Once an account is created follow the sign up procedure listed in Family ID.

  • Your Family ID account will be updated within 48-72 hours once the information is received and reviewed by the medical staff. In the summer, accounts will be updated weekly beginning in July.

    • PARENT(S): please review your athlete(s) status frequently for any updates in your Family ID account. Do NOT create a new registration if you are told your child is not cleared by a Coach, check the account you initially created, the reason is typically listed

    • ATHLETE(S): you may also view your status if your coach tells you that you are not cleared

  • Please do not call/contact the staff until you have at least VIEWED your information in Family ID. If you still don't understand what is missing to have your athlete(s) cleared then by all means contact the medical staff with your concerns, email is best during the summer months.

    • Information on what is needed will be in the "Nurse/Trainer Info" column and will say something like "NEEDS CIPPE" (athletic physical) or "NEEDS (new) baseline concussion test"

        • Those athletes that need a baseline concussion test will be sent an email to the one listed in Family ID explaining what is needed

    • Please also check your "Approval Status" box, if it says "NOT Approved" you received an email stating why, please check the email you provided to Family ID for more information
