As part of our partnership with Baptist Health, they have provided us with spring break training packets that our players can utilize over the break. There are two documents below with the training packet for our younger players (U9-U12) and older players (U13-U19).
Each workout should take around 30 minutes, so please add these sessions into your break. When our players return from spring break, we'll hop right into games, tournaments, and preparation for a Soccer Village Cup, President's Cup, and State Cup so it's important the players come back ready to go!
My name is Gabriel Chapman and I will be your athletic trainer for the club soccer season. I'm a Certified Athletic Trainer working with Baptist Health Sports Medicine.
I am from the Louisville area where I played youth soccer through high school at Whitefield Academy. With having played soccer most of my life, I hope to provide a great perspective on soccer injuries, rehabilitations, and return to play protocols for your players. Having suffered a season-ending injury playing soccer during my junior year in high school, I know what it is like to suffer injuries while playing and want to help my patients prevent and recover from sports-related injuries.
As part of the contract with KFJ, I will be available to be on site when my schedule allows, to offer free injury evaluations, screenings, rehabilitations, and tapings as needed. Even if the player is not practicing on that day, they will still be available to come see me as needed. I also will be able to offer the athletes instant access to some of the top sports medicine trained physicians in the Louisville area. With our partnership, we will be able to get your players in to see a sports medicine trained physician in 48 hours or sooner. Sending the athlete to see one of our Baptist physicians will also offer great communication with me, the physician, the player, the parent and the coach, as often times many things can get lost in translation. Of course seeing the physician will go through your insurance, and subject to normal co-pay just like any other doctors visit.
