Morris hails strapping course

The National, Wednesday July 20th, 2016

HIGH Performance Sport Papua New Guinea sports medicine coordinator Simon Morris described the introductory sport strapping course a success.
The course, tailored specifically for sports’ team trainers, was held last Saturday at the Taurama Aquatic and Indoor Centre (TAIC).
“It was a success, with the attendance  exceeding that expected,” Morris said.
“The participants were keen and the feedback received was positive.”
The course started in the morning, with Morris and his staff dedicating the first part of the session to teaching the participants to understand the intricacies of strapping.
“Many of the participants had done a lot of strapping before but the methods they used were often incorrect.
“What we taught them will improve their capability,” Morris said. A total of 46 participants registered for the course.
They were taught how to strap ankles, knees and shoulders.
There were an equal number of men and women participants.
PNG HP Sport acknowledged the attendance of several players and trainers from the PNG Hunters.
At the end of the course, participants were given a competency-based test. They will be awarded their certificates this week.
