My name is Chelsea Poole and I will be your athletic trainer for the club soccer season. I'm a Certified Athletic Trainer working with Baptist Health Sports Medicine, and we have continued to place a large emphasis on soccer.
I am from the Louisville area where I played youth soccer and I also played at Georgetown College. With having played soccer and/or coached soccer most of my life, I hope to provide a great perspective on soccer injuries, rehabilitations, and return to play protocols for your players.
As part of the contract with KFJ, I will be available to be on site one day per week at practices 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 city. With our partnership, we will be able to get your players in to see a sports medicine trained physician within 48 hours. This will also offer great communication with me, the physician, the player, the parent and the coach, as often times many things 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.
The KFJ Parent Flyer below has all the information on how to get in contact with me via a secure cell phone app. This will put you in direct contact with me should you need assistance with anything injury related. The Performance Training Information includes the details on our sports performance facility that we have a partnership with as well.
