To all members, we are asking for some input with regards to *_*+concussion baseline testing+*_* for all NOMLA players for this season. Many Associations have implemented a concussion protocol into their policy manual as a means to safeguard players against brain injury. We have an opportunity, within the next few weeks, to have Dr. Erin Woitzik of Neumovement to come with her team and provide this testing. I need to have a list of parents/players who would be interested in this. The cost will be between $50-$75 and this will provide a baseline to which we can monitor brain development after a player has been concussed. We highly recommend that players between the Peewee and Midget Division consider having this done.

Here are some quick links designed to provide critical info to both players/parents and coaches:

Sincerely,
NOMLA Executive
