Echonetdaily’s team of junior journalists are doing us proud at the Titans homes games at Skilled Park. This week we have a new reporter 14-year-old Liam Harman from Ocean Shores who spent the day with the Titans medical staff.
Last Sunday I had the opportunity to go to the Titans v Dragons game and I spent half of the under–20s game with the medical staff for the Titans.
There are three medical staff – two physiotherapists and a doctor. All of the medical staff enjoy watching the game and the more injuries that happen during the game the less game they get to watch.
Their job is mostly to check the players’ injuries and tell the coach if they can go back on the field and show the players what stretches to do so the injury gets better.
The medical staff attend training sessions on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The staff will check the players on the days before the game and report to the coach if they are able to play or not.
When the game is over the medical staff have to check all the players to see if they have any injuries; they then check the injury to see if it’s serious and tell the players what to do to help the injury.
Our next junior reporter will visit Skilled Park on June 2 for the Titans v Cowboys game.
