Concussion Policy

The Notre Dame Athletic Department in conjunction with ATI Physical Therapy has made concussion prevention and management our top priority, to read more about our Concussion Management Plan for Athletes click here.  

Concussion Information:

Concussion Testing:

At the beginning of each sports season, the athletic trainer administers a baseline concussion test called the ImPACT Test. The test is done to establish the athlete’s cognitive function at rest, before a concussion occurs. If a concussion is sustained, the athlete can take the test again to see when his or her symptoms return to normal. This test helps return athlete’s to the playing field safely and efficiently.
