Save the Brain and Kalispell Regional Healthcare offer several documents for coaches and athletic staff to assist in gauging the readiness of an athletic participant.

Preparticipation: It is advised to gather a baseline score for every athletic participant. Please refer to the Save the Brain Concussion Campaign Consensus Recommendations. Baseline testing (at cost) may be arranged with April Terry at the Summit Medical Fitness Center by calling (406) 751-4533.

Post-concussion: Remove the athlete from play. Refer the athlete to emergency medical care and/or to a licensed health care provider trained in concussion management.

Before returning to play: See the documents listed below for suggested guidelines. An athlete must be symptom-free, without medication and able to pass the requirements listed in the below documents before return to play is advised. Follow-up with the athlete's initial concussion management-trained clinician is advised before return to play is allowed.

Save the Brain strongly advises coaches and athletic staff to attend a no-charge concussion management training session before administering any of the tests provided through this site. Contact us to request a training.
