Player Welfare

Player Welfare

Hurst’s innovative Player Welfare Programme was developed in 2014 to treat and support our young athletes with sports injuries. This unique, multi-faceted and visionary programme with its integrated and reliable service is highly regarded by other schools.

The team of sports injury specialists includes highly-skilled chartered physio and sports therapists who provide clinical injury assessment, advice and monitor students’ recovery from injuries. Rehabilitation and prevention through education is an important focus of the service.

In-house clinics are held three days per week, with pitch-side first aid provided for many events. The team integrate closely with the college’s Medical Centre, the Sports department and houseparents. 

The Player Welfare Service is run by Physio Science UK, which was set up in 2012 by two directors who combined their passion, knowledge, experience, and professional networks in elite sport science and medicine to provide bespoke sport science solutions and services to professional, amateur and academic organisations.  

The Player Welfare Programme aims to manage the physical needs of our student athletes and provides robust medical support, which is so important. Rob Kift, Director of Sport
