Mission, Vision and Core Values
Provide the youth of our community with the positive values of good sportsmanship, teamwork, self-discipline, and responsibility through the sport of ice hockey.
In a spirit of teamwork, safety and sportsmanship, we provide high-quality programs to teach and support the sport of ice hockey. Our organization looks to have at least one team at every level competitive at highest level of Tier II hockey.
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.
