Off-Ice Practice Carpools

Sign up to carpool and share the driving for off-ice practices! These are mostly going to be at Creekbend Vineyard, 7508 N Woodall Rd, Ellettsville . Players with a driver’s license are permitted to drive to practices in the Bloomington area.

ImPACT Concussion Testing

August 18, 6:00pm at Jackson Creek Middle School. Sign up to reserve your space. This test is required for all incoming players, and any players who did not complete a test last year. (If you completed an ImPACT test this year for another sport, you do not need to repeat.)

  • Be early—testing will start promptly at 6:00pm.
  • Testing usually takes up to 45 minutes
  • Due to the distractions of people leaving, nobody will be released until everyone is finished.

Learn more about the ImPACT assessment.

Columbus Practice Carpools

Sign up to carpool and share the driving for Columbus practices! Reminder: players are not permitted to drive themselves or anyone else to practices in Columbus (even if they are of legal driving age and licensed).
