A baseline test is a pre-season screening conducted by a trained healthcare professional to determine an individual's normal levels of balance and brain functioning prior to engaging in athletic activity.
Baseline testing provides important information that can be compared with results of similar assessments in the event of a suspected concussion during the season. The comparison of baseline test results to post-injury results can help in identifying severity of injury and making critical decisions regarding safely returning to play and other daily activities.

Baseline Testing components:
- Computerized neurocognitive assessment (ImPACTTM testing)
- Comprehensive balance and visual testing, to include assessing how the brain reacts in complex environments
Time to complete: 45-60 minutes
