The renewed partnership was announced as a part of a press conference held Saturday at the PhysioOne headquarters. The press conference was held in the presence of the JBF President Mohamed Alayyan and Secretary-General Nabeel Abu Ata, and from PysioOne Center’s side Director Islam Kaddah and Hussam Fakhoury.

Alayyan welcomed the renewed partnership with the PhysioOne saying: “We appreciate the keenness of the PhysioOne Center to build medical forms for basketball players, which helps our national team technical staff to hold updated knowledge regarding the health status of all players, with the aim of avoiding and preventing any risks.”

He added: “The health of our players is a top priority for us. It is our players’ rights to have professional management of the team, one that helps us follow up on them and determine their physical and mental health and wellbeing before engaging in the training camps.”

Abu Ata, stated that the partnership between PhysioOne and the JBF is to compile a scientific platform that aims to clarify the procedures to be implemented before and during the assembly of professional players.

“The health status of players from different age groups will be evaluated, to help determine everything they need,” he said stressing the presence of therapists during the national teams’ trainings.

For his turn, Kaddah said that the project called “Protocol for evaluating basketball players before the start of the season” is a vital step that must be taken before resuming official competitions.

“This project allows us to assess injury risks that threaten players during the season, alongside determining the physical advantages of each player, and reducing the incidence of fatal accidents due to cardiovascular disorders,” he said.

The examination is a fundamental pillar of the planning of sports seasons, and highlights the needs of individual players in terms of strength, flexibility, agility, he said.

PhysioOne’s special protocol, which is based on scientific foundations, will take into account what the player needs to ensure success. Tests will be held before, during, and after the season.
