THE INJURY CLINIC PHYSIOTHERAPY: ATHLETE SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM 2020
THE INJURY CLINIC GEELONG ATHLETE SPONSORSHIP PROGRAM
Each year The Injury Clinic supports local junior athletes in the Geelong area through a sponsorship program.
Applications open in October with the selection process being completed by the end of the year. The selected athletes will then partake in our 12 month sponsorship program where they receive ongoing assistance from our Strength & Conditioning coach, Physiotherapists and Dietitian.
This sponsorship program will be heading into its 5th year, and continues to evolve and adapt to reflect what previous years have valued and made use of. With The Injury Clinic growing to include a Strength Coach, this has become an integral part of the development program.
Please see below for further details regarding our Athlete Development Program.
ATHLETE SPONSORSHIP: INCLUSIONS

Ben has worked with State and National level athletes during his time with the Melbourne Rebels Youth 7’s, Geelong Grammar, and the Barwon Sports Academy, along with head coaching and personal experience in representative level Football and Cricket.
This is inclusive of program progressions and changes for the duration of the 2020 calendar year.
