Sports Lab

The Shammies are fortunate to have the expert physiotherapy services of Sports Lab.

The physio is around on game day from 12 noon until the end of the 1st grade game.

  • Sports Lab physios are trained in sports injuries and understand the boundaries of athletes and their desire to keep playing.
  • The club backs medical decisions made by the game-day physios and strongly recommends you heed them.

Strapping

  • Strapping tape is available at $10/roll. This is cheaper and of better quality than anything you will find elsewhere.
  • Please look after your unfinished roll so it can be used at your next strapping session (put it in a plastic container so it does not get squashed or dirty).

Pre-game

  • Current-game players with injuries get highest priority
  • Starting players in the following game are the next priority
  • If you require strapping, arrive before your coach requires you for warm-up. 90 minutes before your game is a good idea.
  • Please explain what you require.

During the game

  • If you are injured, follow the physio’s instructions.
  • Come off the field if advised to do so.

Head knocks

  • Head knocks are serious
  • If you see a player with a head injury please make sure the player is attended by the physio
  • Coaches, manager and players, if the physio wants a player removed from play due to a head injury please assist the player from the field
  • Please follow any post-game advice and stand-down periods. This is for your own benefit and not for any other reasons.
