Hi Everyone,


We hope you are having a great summer.  Please see details for concussion baseline testing available at the Lemieux Complex.  While baseline testing is not mandatory, we do highly recommend it for WPRC athletes.  Our partnership with the UPMC will also offer session in the fall again before the season starts.  See details on how to register below.
