2017 Baseline Testing

Baseline Testing:

The Pioneer Football League has worked out a deal with the Carolina Sports Concussion Program at Carolina Neurosurgery to provide free Impact Testing (aka baseline testing) for the Carolina Crusaders this season. We highly recommend that you take advantage of this free testing! If you wish to participate in this testing, please sign-up below and we will send you login and password information. 

Note: We take concussions very seriously and we are asking the parents to do the same. For this reason all of the Carolina Crusaders Coaches and trainers are Heads Up Concussion certified with the CDC. We have also added a concussion information sheet to the participation packet for the parents and players. Please read this sheet and make sure you understand it. If you have questions don’t hesitate to ask.
