News · Baseline Concussion Testing


Avon Lake Athletics, with the help of the Cleveland Clinic, will again be performing on site baseline concussion testing for all student athletes.

We will be testing using the Cleveland Clinic’s C3 Application on the Apple iPad.

The C3 baseline testing day is MONDAY, JUNE 4 from 8:00 AM – Noon at Avon Lake High School in the Commons and room #302.

Times:          Freshmen (incoming)     –     8:00 AM 

                     Juniors                                –    10:00 AM

We will also be asking ALL ATHLETES to complete the ImPact Test!

The ImPact test continues to be the ‘gold standard’ for concussion testing at Avon Lake High School.  It is the most widely used and recognized by collegiate and professional teams.

Click HERE for instructions for taking the ImPact Test.  This test needs to be completed at least once every two years.

Why 2 tests??  The C3 App incorporates a balance component not included in the ImPact while also assists in documentation of the injury and the athlete’s ‘return to play’ process.  Why only Freshmen and Juniors?  The test is now valid for two years.  We are getting on a schedule to allow athletes to only take the test twice during their high school career.

Please direct all questions to the Avon Lake Athletic Trainer – Matt Yonkof
