Cam and Steve finish their week at the National Indigenous Cricket Carnival (NICC) as the central Physiotherapists representing Cricket Australia and Praxis. The NICC has been created to further advance and develop Indigenous cricket. The competition provides greater playing opportunities in Alice Springs, but also forms a deeper connection with Australian cricket’s high performance pathway.
They were busy providing their expertise to over 10 male and female cricket teams who didn't have a travelling physio accompanying them to Alice Springs. With over 150 consults in a week and 12 hour days as a minimum, our principal physio's leave the tournament a little weary but proud of the standard they maintained during their stint in the Red Centre.
During the week of the championships, a special screening of Walkabout Wickets, a documentary commissioned by Cricket Australia commemorating the 150th anniversary of Australia’s first cricket team to go on an international tour. There was a preview screening aired in the Alice Springs' Todd Street Mall as well as on Channel 7. The documentary will be free to stream for the next few weeks on 7Plus. Stephen was fortunate enough to be on that tour providing physiotherapy services for both the national men's and women's indigenous sides .
Both Cam and Steve are back in clinic on Wednesday looking forward to living the Prevent Prepare Perform mantra at our HQ in Teneriffe.
Until Next time
Prevent. Prepare. Perform.
