                                       Image result for vail summit orthopedics
Team Breck is excited to be partnering with Vail Summit Orthopedics this year. As our partner, they are offering great benefits for our athletes.
 
1. Impact Testing - VSO is offering TBK athletes (12 y/o and older) concussion impact testing for $15/test. An hour long test is administered to determine a baseline. If your child ever hits their head or has a questionable crash, they can compare results with the baseline to determine if they're concussed. If you would like to sign up, please choose a date/time by clicking here. If these times do not work, you may call VSO and schedule an appointment separately. 
 
The test for athletes 11 and under is not as reliable and more expensive. However, it does exist and is available at VSO for $75/test. Please reach out to Rachel Freeman directly at VSO if you're interested in testing your younger athlete. (rfreeman@vsortho.com or 970-296-4811)
 
2. Free First Office Visit - VSO is offering free office visits for the first visit per injury. When scheduling, let them know you are part of TBK. 
 
Dr. Cunningham is our team doctor and will be present at our races/ events for the season.
