For the 8th consecutive year, the Valero Alamo Bowl is partnering with Sports Medicine Associates of San Antonio’s BrainHeroes initiative to provide free concussion testing to student athletes across the San Antonio area. This initiative is proactively protecting student athletes with a baseline ImPACT test before they hit the field or court. These tests provide an assessment of student-athlete’s individual brain profiles to be prepared in case a concussion does occur and to determine when the student athlete is ready to resume regular activities, including athletics.
In total, the Valero Alamo Bowl has contributed 15,000 tests to ensure every interested school can take advantage of this offer. This free concussion testing is available at 14 participating San Antonio area campuses. Contact your school for more information regarding on-site testing. If your school is not on this list don’t worry, these tests are also available to individuals across the area and will be administered in the offices of Sports Medicine Associates of San Antonio.
