CHAD A. JACOBS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
The Chad A. Jacobs Memorial Scholarship at Wonderland Wizards was established in memory of Chad A. Jacobs who passed away from cancer on June 11, 2010 at the age of 45. Chad grew up in Fairfield, CT and started playing youth hockey at Wonderland of Ice in 1969 when he was just five years old. He went on to play on the Travel A teams at the Squirt, Pee Wee and Bantam levels at Wonderland, and subsequently attended Fairfield Prep. At Prep, Chad was a member of the 1980-1981 Connecticut State Division I championship team and was co-captain during the 1981-1982 season. During high school, Chad was one of two high school seniors in Connecticut chosen to participate in a pre-Olympic hockey camp at the U.S. Olympic training facility in Colorado Springs, CO. The camp consisted of the 300 best high school seniors in the United States. At The College of the Holy Cross, Chad continued his hockey career and was captain of the team. In the late 1990’s, Chad returned to Wonderland as a coach and the year before he passed away, coached his son Mac’s house hockey team.
Hockey helped Chad gain confidence, develop leadership skills, and learn the importance of teamwork and perseverance. The Chad A. Jacobs Memorial Foundation was established in Chad’s memory and funds the above mentioned hockey scholarship and other academic and athletic scholarships. It is the goal of the Foundation to provide children in financial need with the same opportunities Chad had growing up so that they can achieve their potential. For more information about the Chad A. Jacobs Memorial Foundation, please go to www.cajfoundation.org.

Wonderland Wizards - ImPACT Test Concussion Management Program
ImPACT Test Concussion Management Program
The Wonderland Wizards have contracted ImPACT Applications, Inc. to provide a Concussion Management Program which has an online tool to a establish a baseline for the Concussion Management Program.
The ImPACT Test is a neuro-cognitive test that is one piece of the puzzle used in assessing recovery from concussions and determining the timing of return to play. It should only be used as a tool, and should not be the only deciding factor in returning a concussed athlete to play. It provides objective data and prevents athletes who hide their symptoms from returning to play before they are fully recovered.
3. Start the ImPACT test.The ImPACT Test is used by the NFL, NHL, and other professional sports organizations. It is used by many universities and is now recommended by some states for high school students. This test is recommended by the CIAC in Connecticut to be used as a baseline in Connecticut high schools.
NO ADOLESCENT WITH A CONCUSSION SHOULD CONTINUE TO PLAY OR RETURN TO A GAME AFTER SUSTAINING A CONCUSSION.
