ImPACT Concussion Testing
Beginning in 2012, all AGS students* are required to take baseline concussion impact testing.
Athlete conditioning is offered as an elective for girls in grades 10 through 12 who participate in sports at the varsity level. Our student athletes learn concepts such as threshold of training, cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility, and they are introduced to a variety of basic exercises (squat, bench press, etc.). The major emphasis in this course is adolescent resistance (strength) training, with safety being the top priority. We focus on proper exercise and lifting techniques for the girls, and the resistance training program is based on the latest research governing adolescent strength training.
