Busy weekend for SASMA
This weekend SASMA ran a Level 1 Trainers course and the first of the 2016 University Education Series: Advanced Taping, Massage & Recovery.
The University Education session was held at Adelaide Crows Football Club under the guidance of Head Trainer, Vince Del Bono and Remedial Massage Therapist, Mia Cochrane.
All who attended, learnt advanced taping techniques of the ankle, knee and shoulder, along with pre and post-game massage techniques. The morning ended with everyone participating in a practical recovery session in the hot and cold baths and the pool. All of the students thoroughly enjoyed the session as it allowed them to learn from presenters who work at an elite sporting club.
Later this year we have the final two sessions in the series, which include Athletic Development in Elite Athletes and Shoulder & Hip Impingement – A co-care approach. The Education Series is great as it gives a practical nature to what students are learning at University as well as building on the basics that are taught in the SASMA Level 1 & 2 Sports Trainers course.
On Sunday we also had 27 attendees to our Level 1 Sports Trainers course. Participants were able to learn from three great presenters, Physiotherapist, Sam Offord, Dr Kevyn Hernandez and Kylie Doecke. Our Level 1 Sports Trainers courses have been quite popular this year so if you have missed out we are running another one on June 19th and also one for University students on July 24th. These courses have been selling out so remember to register early to avoid disappointment.
SASMA would like to thank all the presenters for the time and effort they put into not just these two sessions but all of our community courses run over the year so far. One of the great parts of our courses is the level and qualifications of our presenters.
