Healthy Hearing: conducts hearing screenings. Reduced hearing can have a significant negative impact on an athlete’s ability to respond to directions in training, as well as understand other verbal information from coaches. The safety of the athlete also can be impeded by hearing loss, as can the athlete’s interpersonal relationships. Screening of hearing is the first step in the process of identifying an athlete’s hearing loss and preventing its negative effects from occurring in sporting and social events. SOWI will offer Healthy Hearing at the Indoor Sports Tournament and Summer Games this year!
Healthy Hearing 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., in the Library on the first floor in Gruenhagen Conference Center at UW Oshkosh on Saturday April 6, 2019
We invite all athletes with a current medical on file with SOWI to Healthy Athlete screenings, even if they are not competing in the State Team Basketball Tournament.
