All players will undergo an immediate post game recovery and will undergo an injury assessment immediately after a game.

The following day, the players will participate in a second recovery session and an injury clinic for any concerns which arise from the game. We will then set a plan in motion from there on.

We also have systems in place to track player-s response to playing games and training in terms of their health and wellness. We monitor that closely and make sure we put in interventions to normalise their monitoring levels back to normal before they play again, ensuring they are fully recovered for the next game.

There are a variety of ways to achieve that from a recovery session to modifications in training, keeping up the maintenance rehab, and the continuation of massage and physiotherapy. There are a number of aspects which go into recovery to ensure a player is ready to go the next week.
