Details of Seminar & Baseline Testing

We are pleased to announce that PPW has coordinated for ConcussionCorps to provide an educational session on recognizing concussions for coaches, parents, and athletes. Vicky Graham, MS, ATC, LAT of ConcussionCorps is also the Program Director of Head-Zone Concussion Care located in Shelton, CT and will lead the presentation. The 1-hour session (40 minutes presentation plus Q & A time) will be held in the Pomperaug High School Auditorium at 7pm on August 25th. Please note that Football/Cheer practice will be shortened or rescheduled to accommodate this event.

Additionally, we have also scheduled Vicky and her team to perform King-Devick baseline testing for all participants in our program which will be done at the Community House Park Field during practice on August 31st.

While we encourage all PPW parents to attend the concussion education session and for participants to have baseline testing, these services are voluntary.
