To ensure that student athletes who sustain concussions are properly diagnosed, given adequate time to heal and are comprehensively supported until they are symptom-free, NSA’s concussion policy includes return-to-learn and return-to-play protocols in compliance with the Virginia Board of Education. As an additional safety measure, our athletic trainers also perform neurocognitive baseline testing during the pre-season on all student-athletes to measure reaction times, memory and other neurocognitive functions. A Sport Concussion Assessment Tool (SCAT) is also completed as a secondary reference.
