A Step aHead Concussion Awareness

Amateur Hockey Association of Illinois (AHAI), Athletico Physical Therapy, The Chicago Blackhawks and NorthShore University HealthSystem came together to create the A Step aHead initiative to combat one of the most common head injuries: concussion. These four groups pledge to educate the Illinois youth hockey community on the importance of concussion management and to be proactive with implementing baseline testing. Through A Step aHead, we will offer free baseline concussion testing, as well as educational programs, to youth hockey players in the AHAI program.

Testing is now open! Click here for testing information.
