The North Central Predator Organization prides itself in building innovative partnerships with community organizations to allow the best support for our athletes and their families. This week we are providing a profile overview on our Sports Medicine Partnership.
We are pleased to provide an Athlete Care Program that enhances our player safety and provides advanced medical services if an injury were to occur. Through our partnership with Sports Medicine, we have arranged RAPID & PRIORITY access to treatment, Sport Medicine Physicians and Orthopaedic Surgeons to ensure a fast, but safe return to play. Sports Medicine has over 30 years' experience and a superb reputation for providing quality treatment for local minor and pro hockey players.
Along with treatment, Sports Medicine has provided our NCP team trainers with practical workshops, take home supplies and the opportunity for all bench staff to participate in a complimentary on-line concussion workshop. NCP utilized their on-site therapists and polyclinic at the OHF Championships last season, and we appreciate the donation for our association's practice jerseys.
Most importantly, all players have insurance through Hockey Canada that offers families a secondary policy to cover physiotherapy or chiropractic care treatment. The clinic will assist with this process to ensure all players receive treatment through insurance .
If a player is injured, parents can call Sports Medicine to receive quick rapid appointments by calling 705-325-2200, or emailing [email protected]
Parents are required to identify themselves as NCP AAA players. Online booking is available with direct billing to extended health care insurance plans.
