School Accident Insurance
 
Students are required to have medical insurance coverage to participate in any organized school athletic activity. APS provides an opportunity to purchase affordable Student Accident Insurance. Medical bills for injuries that happen on school grounds or at school–sponsored events are the parents’ responsibility. It is highly recommended that parents consider using this as a secondary insurance for their student athlete. Markel Insurance Company will provide school accident insurance for the 2013-14 school year. It may be purchased online (click below) or by calling 877-444-5401.

ImPACT Testing
 
Yorktown student-athletes participate in ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) assessment. ImPACT is a concussion evaluation software program which serves as a tool for medically trained evaluators in cases of suspected head injury. The program assists the evaluator in determining an athlete's ability to return to play through a comparison of individual baseline data (pre-concussion test results) and post-concussion test results. ImPACT testing is one tool of several assessments that determines an athlete's return to play. Our certified Athletic Trainer coordinates with the coaches of most sports to schedule a time at the beginning of each season for our student-athletes to be baseline tested. Many of our athletes have already completed testing, however, not all students are or will be tested.  If your son or daughter has not been tested by the second week after tryouts and you would like them to be tested or if you have questions about the ImPACT program, please feel free to contact Ms. LaNay Burke, ATC, at 703-228-5421.
 
 
Yorktown Student-Athlete Academic Eligibility Plan
 
While students are required to maintain five Cs or better any time interim grades or quarter grades are released, all students will partake in proactive Academic Check-Ups approximately one week before interim or quarter grades are input. The goal of the Academic Check-Up form is to allow the coach and student-athlete to determine the student's current academic standing and to formulate a plan to insure the student meets the five C minimum before grades come out. There are many different resources students can use in order to maintain or raise their grades - meeting with teachers before school, during lunch periods, or at after school help sessions, or attending Saturday school. More information on the plan is available in the Activities Guide to Clubs and Sports.
