Concussion testing for 2018-2019 WINTER Athletes begins at WJ on November 5th. Parents and student athletes should review all of the information on the MCPS Health and Safety pages and then check the “Sports Medicine” column under the “More” link at the top of this page for WJ’s testing dates.
MCPS student-athletes are required to have a baseline test, good for two-years, on file with the school prior to participating in a scrimmage or contest. Prospective WINTER sports athletes who do not have a current baseline test on file MUST attend a session on a date listed under “Sports Medicine. Spring sports athletes whose current tests will expire prior to the start of their next sport’s season may also attend these sessions. However, testing will be offered again prior to the Spring season.
STUDENTS ARE NOT PERMITTED TO PARTICIPATE IN SCRIMMAGES UNTIL THEY HAVE A CONCUSSION TEST!
