NEW DATES - Baseline Concussion Testing - 2016/2017 Season
Lucan Minor Hockey is implementing a baseline testing program for the 2016-2017 season as part of the Lucan Minor Hockey Concussion Management Program.

It is mandatory that each athlete from Novice to Midget undergo this baseline testing procedure prior to beginning any Lucan Minor Hockey sanctioned activities (development ice, tryouts or practices).  Please note that players will not be permitted to participate in try-outs or practices until this baseline testing has been completed.


This testing will take place at the Lucan Memorial Community Centre with each specific age group given a timeframe to attend.  These dates are subject to change once the tryout schedule has been determined.



The CONFIRMED dates are as follows:



Novice:                          Tuesday August 23rd 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Atom:                             Thursday August 25th 7:00pm - 9:00pm

PeeWee and Bantam:   Tuesday August 30th 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Midget:                          Thursday September 1st 7:00pm - 9:00pm

Additional Testing: Tuesday September 13th 7:00pm - 9:00pm


If your athlete is unable to attend the tentative date from his or her age group, please make arrangements to attend the one of the other scheduled dates.


The time commitment will be 1 hour maximum and it is mandatory that 1 parent / guardian accompany the athlete to the baseline testing.  The parent / guardian will be attending a 30 minute educational session regarding concussion (what, why, how), recognition of concussions, post-injury management of concussions and the LMH return to play process


Additional information regarding the specific date and time will be made available in early August


There is no additional cost to the athlete to have this baseline testing performed.


The cost of this program has be partially subsidized by the Lucan Lions Club.
