A group of Hong Kong Sports Medicine students have this morning been given a valuable insight into the Sea Eagles’ Rehabilitation and Strength and Conditioning programs.
Sports Medicine Australia Regional Manager Mitch Jarvis – himself a passionate Sea Eagles Member – contacted Don Singe, Manly’s Head of High Performance - to ask if he could potentially show the students around the Sea Eagles set up at Narrabeen.
As part of an ongoing relationship between Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) and The Chinese University of Hong Kong, SMA this week hosted a group of Sports Medicine students in Sydney, with a view to providing a snapshot of the facilities, staffing and programs associated with high-performance sport across a number of codes.
“During their time in the country, this student group were hopeful of gaining a greater insight into some of the Sports Medicine programs and processes that are seen within professional sport in Australia,’’ Jarvis said.
“However, what they received from Don Singe and the entire high-performance staff at the club, absolutely exceeded those expectations.
“They will return home with an invaluable understanding of the preparation and degree of work that goes into maintaining a successful playing squad within the National Rugby League.
“Donny didn’t have to go to these lengths but it’s just the type of bloke he is - an absolute asset to the Club.
“I just like to give a massive thanks to all involved with the student site visit this morning. I’ve already had some amazing feedback.”
