As a club we would like to offer a body screening process for our swimmers to help in their development as
swimmers. Body Screening is a process whereby a swimmer is assessed for any skeletal imbalances which could
then prevent any long term injuries and ultimately time out of training and competition. Screening can also
highlight any imbalances which can be rectified for life.
We have Bev Randle-bissell (parent to Jacob & Bronte) who has kindly donated her time to provide this
service. Bev is a children's physio specialising in paediatrics at the Cov & Warwick
hospital and works in a musculoskeletal outpatient environment.
We have arranged for Bev to be available on Friday Sprint Nights from 6.00-8.00pm for appointments
(15mins at a time) to be booked. These appointments will be held in the small area outside the Disabled
Changing Area at the teaching pool end of the Olympic Pool. Appointments are to be made after referral by
squad coach & completion of a consent form/proforma that is to be returned to the Beacon Head Coach, Adam
Ruckwood. Upon Adam receiving the form an appointment time will be confirmed to swimmer and also to Bev.
Please note a parent/guardian must be present during the appointment/consultation.
After the assessment has taken place swimmer, parent & coaches to be informed of outcomes. If there
are any further assessments needed then these to be booked separately through Bev.
Consent forms/proformas are available from your squad coach.
PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS A SCREENING PROCESS AND NOT FOR TREATMENTS. ANYONE CURRENTLY UNDER A PHYSIO
SHOULD REMAIN UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THAT PHYSIO.
