To all Illinois Parents, players and Hockey Clubs,
The Amateur Hockey Association of Illinois (AHAI) is partnering with AthletiCo Physical Therapy, the Midwest Center for Concussion Care and the Chicago Blackhawks to create an initiative to educate the Illinois youth hockey community on the importance of concussion management and to proactively implement baseline testing.
All Illinois hockey players ages 13 to 18 are eligible for this program at no cost (handled by the sponsors). Pre-testing will be conducted at 18 Chicago-area AthletiCo Physical Therapy, with a target start date of November 1.
Additional information on contacts, awareness training and education will be messaged later this month. The program promises to be a benefit our young athletes.
