Dr Katie Walker-Small, the Programme Leader for Sport Rehabilitation at the University of Cumbria, will discuss routes into sport rehab, training requirements, key skill and attributes and career pathways during an interactive online seminar tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday July 7).
Sport rehabilitation requires a different skillset and qualifications to that of a physiotherapist and Dr Walker-Small will explain the best way for players to re-train to enable them to gain the required qualifications.
The seminar is the latest in a series of workshops organised by RL Cares to help players make the transition into successful new careers once their playing days are over.
“Many players will know from their own experiences what a powerful difference sports rehabilitators and therapy can make and that experience will be invaluable when it comes to getting the qualifications they need to build new careers,” said RL Cares Career Coach Julie Measures.
“The seminar will provide lots of information to enable players to make informed choices about the study options available to work in sport rehab and therapy.”
The online workshop is free to attend for all current and former professional and semi-professional Rugby League players and starts at 4pm on Wednesday.
