* The goal of the A Step aHead Program is to educate the youth hockey community on concussion awareness, prevention and treatment as well as provide FREE baseline neurocognitive testing to AHAI members.
* A Step aHead testing is available for AHAI members ages 11-18. (12U through 18U/High School) from July 1 through November 1, 2019.
* Baseline testing is MANDATORY for Stars players and must be completed BEFORE the 1st 2019-20 Season practice.
*The test is valid for 2 years but a player will require retesting prior to the subsequent season if he/she suffers a concussion during the 1st year of the 2-year period.
