My name is Remmert Hinlopen, my family and I have lived in Chilliwack for almost 28 years. During our time here in Chilliwack I have been an active coach with Chilliwack FC and, like you, have spent many a wet, windy, cold night on the fields! I am also a Physiotherapist in the community and enjoy focusing on soccer related injuries and the prevention of.
I am happy to offer my knowledge and my services to Chilliwack FC regarding the education and prevention of injuries commonly sustained by our young players.
To serve Chilliwack FC, I am partnering with Paul Nicholls of Club XO. Together we want to develop a program that effectively addresses the athletic development of our players. We will address such aspects as proper warm ups that focus on injury prevention as well as game preparation, speed, power and agility drills that contribute to building a top athlete. One of our roles will be to educate and support our club’s team coaches in implementing the right approach to all of these important aspects.
We will make ourselves available to players, coaches and parents to answer any concerns or questions you have in these areas. We will be establishing a link to the Chilliwack FC website called Your Physio Fix that will provide a direct link to myself or Paul so that we can provide you answers and guidance to the correct treatment and rehabilitation of our players should they sustain an injury. The goal being to get them back on the field as quickly as possible, but only when they are ready.
Paul and I would like to encourage an effective line of communication between players, coaches, parents and ourselves so that we can start to address injury issues immediately as the goal will always be to return the player to the field ready to compete again as the earliest possible time…..but only when they are ready!
Wishing everyone a fun and healthy soccer season!
