New physio partnerships for EA


Elite Academy are pleased to announce a partnership with two physiotherapists to ensure that a first class player welfare program is provided moving forwards. Independent Physio Cedric Van Der Sypt and the De Kinesisten group will serve as official physiotherapists for Elite Academy.

Cedric Van Der Sypt is a former basketball player who played together with Olivier Goetgeluck at the Antwerp Giants. Cedric is graduating from University this year. Having Cedric as an independent is a great asset as it means that Cedric is available every Tuesday & Thursday to come to the EA Facility to work with any injured player (s). Additionally, Cedric will deliver a screening in the post-season for all Elite Academy players. You can read more about Cedric here. 

The De Kinesisten (http://kinesisten.com/) group is a practice of 5 physiotherapists based in Merksem (right next to the Facility). With 7 teams and over 100 players in the academy next year, having two physio partnerships ensure that all players can be comprehensively taken care of for any of their rehab needs.

The partnerships will greatly assist with the rehab process, with both physios in regular contact with all Elite Academy coaches and integrated into our “Slack” communication channel. This means for any injury, the whole Academy coaching staff will be able to read a report for each player and better understand the injury and rehab work that is needed to ensure of a smooth return back to court.
