We pride ourselves on using our skills to help athletes, weekend warriors and every day recreational exercises perform at their best. We also revel in the opportunity to tour and represent Praxis at national and international events.
In the first time in our short history, we have 3 physiotherapists out of the clinic providing their skills for Cricket Australia teams and tournaments both at home and abroad.
Stephen is looking after the Australian U19s in Colombo Sri Lanka, as recently covered in the PWYP blog: A winning Australian Cricket Side. He returns from the subcontinent on the 15th of January.
Zac, is busy down in Shepparton Victoria as a central physiotherapist for the Australia Country Cricket Championships. This competition will provide country cricketers an opportunity to play in a national carnival that will see six teams from across Australia and the East Asia Pacific (EAP) region battling across T20, OneDay and Two-Day cricket. Country cricket continues to be a tremendous nursery for talented young players including national representatives such as premier fast bowlers Andy Bichel and Shaun Tait, showing that this tournament is a viable part of the high performance pathway.
Cameron is about to embark upon two weeks in Ballarat and Bendigo as a central physiotherapist at the U18 Female National Championships. Underage National Championships are an integral part of the Australian Cricket Pathway. These Championships offer important development opportunities for our emerging stars and provide a stepping stone to further national representation. Events such as these have been the major contributor of talent to the Australian Women’s Team since its establishment helping such players as Meg Lanning and Ellyse Perry become the best in the world.
Congratulations to our three physiotherapists and we look forward to seeing them back in clinic soon!
Till next time,
Prevent. Prepare. Perform
