Exciting football partnership
- Posted by: pembscollegesuperadmin
Haverfordwest Senior and U19s football teams found themselves in safe hands when they recently struck up a partnership with Pembrokeshire College sports massage students.
In a first for the College, Haverfordwest footballers are set to benefit from a full programme of pre and post-match treatments delivered by the College’s sports massage students. The partnership kicked off on 22 October with players attending the College’s sports massage clinic for their initial assessments before the season gets into full swing.
As part of the partnership students will be responsible for managing all player therapies. Training sessions will be attended by a team of sports therapists who will be on-hand to deal with any injuries picked up during training as well as to support players recovering from old injuries. In addition, injured players will have their recovery supported and supervised, alongside other medical professionals, in the College’s sports massage clinic.
This new partnership provides an excellent learning opportunity for students giving them extensive experience of the sports massage industry and increasing their employability upon completing the course.
This is the first partnership to be struck up by the College as part of a plan to support large scale sporting events across the county during 2014. If you would be interested in your team or event being supported by the College’s sports massage students please contact Ben Silverstone on: 01437 753 269.
If anyone is interested in attending the College for sports massage treatments, the clinic will re-open to the public on 12 November with treatments costing just £2 per session. To book an appointment just call Ben Silverstone on: 01437 753 269. Sessions run from 7pm.
