In the summer of 2014, Bishop Brady partnered with the NH Safe Sports Network/ New Hampshire Musculoskeletal Institute to provide athletic training and sports safety enhancements for student athletes. NHMI is a non-profit organization dedicated to sports health and safety.

Bishop Brady Emergency Action Plans
Emergency Action Plans (EAPs) have been developed for all venues where Bishop Brady practices, as well as for all home game sites. Click here to review the Emergency Action Plans.
NOTE: In case of injury, parents of student athletes can seek medical attention from their personal physician; however, our team physicians and concussion consultants have offered priority appointments to Bishop Brady athletes that need assessment.
Bishop Brady has initiated baseline concussion testing for all student athletes. In this first year, all athletes will be tested. In subsequent years, all freshmen and juniors will take the computerized ImPACT test. As of September 10, 139 students have completed baseline concussion testing. For more information please visit www.impacttest.com, and click here to learn more about how Bishop Brady is utilizing the ImPACT test.
