Life Balance

I recently interviewed an NFL AT and the biggest concern was life balance and raising a family.

Alisha and Kevin King are both life balance people. We try not to use work/ life balance because work is part of your life that needs to stay in balance. trying to completely separate them causes more problems.

A few tips from Kevin:

  • Start with a solid staff understanding
  • When at home, be at home
  • A partner you can connect with is EVERYTHING

USA Rugby: No AT Means No Match – 340

USA Rugby required any sanctioned event have a Doctor, Athletic Trainer, or Paramedic onsite for the duration of the event or the matches will be cancelled.  Charlie Wund and InjureFree were able to help make this happen by tracking injuries and showing trends.

The best data to have is actionable data.  Use what you have and start making changes or talking about it.  As the data grows then adjust and incorporate the new findings.
