What is Concussion Check?

Concussion Check is a standardized, three-step protocol that can be used by individuals without medical training to identify the signs and symptoms of concussion. The protocol was created to protect youth athletes by empowering parents to make informed decisions about removing young athletes from play when a trained medical professional is not available.

Concussion Check is like a three-legged stool: if one leg is broken, the stool falls. If a young athlete fails any one of the three steps, they should be removed from play immediately and further evaluated by a medical professional.

Action Plan

If the athlete fails any of the steps, the athlete must be removed
from play until cleared by a medical professional.

Step 1

Recognize and Remove

Watch for concerning hits or signs of concussion

If signs of a concussion are observed or symptoms are reported, the athlete must be removed from play until cleared by a medical professional.

Step 2

Memory Assessment

Ask Orientation Questions
  • Where are we?
  • Is it before lunch or after lunch?
  • Is this a practice or a game?
  • What is your coach’s name?

If the athlete incorrectly answers the orientation questions, the athlete must be removed from play until cleared by a medical professional.

Step 3

King-Devick Test in association with Mayo Clinic

Administer King-Devick Test

If the athlete has a prolonged test time compared to baseline or any uncorrected errors, the athlete must be removed from play until cleared by a medical professional.
