Matilda’s physio David Battersby. Photo supplied

The Mullumbimby Brunswick Valley Football Club has invited other clubs to hear a talk by the head physiotherapist of the Australian women’s soccer team, David Battersby, on Saturday January 19.

David will be running a training session for coaches on how to effectively deliver the FIFA11+ warm-up program.

The regime has been proven to significantly reduce major injuries (up to  50 per cent), particularly in female players between the ages of 13 and 18 who have a high risk of knee and ACL injury.

But the program is extremely beneficial to both males and females.

The MBVFC has extended an invitation to other clubs’ coaches to attend and also benefit from David’s expertise, in an effort to contribute to player wellbeing across the region.

David has been extremely generous in giving his time free of charge and so attendance is free (but registration is essential to [email protected]).

The FIFA11+ session will take place during the morning at MBVFC’s home ground in Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby.

More detailed info on the program can be found at: www.footballmedicineassociation.com.au/fifa11plus.
