The Maulers Hockey Association has asked the Illinois Hockey Community to come together in support of their Midget goaltender, Dylan Czerlanis. Dylan lost his father several years ago, and his mother, Colleen Mars, unexpectedly passed away on Friday, September 4. Financial support will only scrape the surface of the support that Dylan will need over the coming months. The Maulers have created a Go Fund Me® account in Dylan’s name, the Dylan Czerlanis Fund, to help alleviate some of the financial impact Colleen’s sudden passing will have on her family. “Based on all our experiences thus far, I know the Illinois Youth Hockey Community will rally around Dylan. We want to help this family that has characterized the citizenship and sportsmanship that defines the Maulers as well as the the spirit of youth hockey,” said Craig Bewick, President of the Maulers

Mission, Vision and Core Values

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 injury: 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.
This year's theme for the A Step aHead program is 'baseline before blue line' because we want to emphasis the value of being tested prior to participating in a contact sport. Testing will be available to youth hockey players ages 13-18 in the state of Illinois from July 1, 2014 through November 30, 2014. Testing is being offered at 29 Athletico clinics across Chicagoland. Baseline cognitive testing provides information on a child's brain function prior to an injury. If an athlete were to receive a concussion, the baseline test can then be compared to a post-injury test. This provides objective data to better assess recovery from a concussion.
If you have additional questions about the A Step aHead program visit www.athletico.com/impact or contact us at email@example.com.
All Flyers Hockey Players, especially Bantams and Midgets, are encouraged to participate in this program. The testing is FREE. Registration is now open.

Go to https://www.athletico.com/registration-for-baseline-testing/, click "Individual Testing", and complete all of your information. You may choose the nearest Athletico location on the drop-down. After registration you will receive a confirmation email and instructions for scheduling your appointment. You will also have to print and sign the "Release Form" (click here) and bring it with you to your test appointment.
