The General Assembly of the newly-formed Jordan Athletic Therapy Association has held its first e-meeting to discuss the association’s internal system.
Dr. Tammam Mango, Executive Director of The Crown Prince Foundation, expressed her happiness at the launch of the association and the implementation of the first session of the General Assembly. It was described as an important step to institutionalising the successful Qusai Initiative, which has made a huge impact since its introduction to protect the health and well being of Jordan’s sporting community.
The Initiative has so far graduated 237 sports therapists, saving the lives of 11 players, in addition to participating in 149 local and international championships.
“The establishment of this Federation is in line with the objectives of the Qusai Initiative, as it will work to create a safe legislative environment for sports therapists, ensuring the preservation of their rights and defining their duties,” said Dr. Tammam.
“It will also develop the skills of sports therapists across the Kingdom by continuing to hold education courses.”
JOC Secretary General, Nasser Majali, highlighted the role entrusted to the association in creating a safe sports environment and supporting athletes in line with the Jordan Olympic Committee’s strategy.
The meeting unanimously approved the draft internal systems of the Federation, with the General Assembly continuing to establish the remainder of its duties by specific deadlines set.
The meeting was preceded by a two-hour scientific session, presented by Dr. Ghassan Alami, on common shoulder injuries and how to treat them, which encouraged rich discussion between the lecturer and the attendees.
