How long can I be supported?
Each Athlete undergoes a 12 month program. At the end of the program, they do need to reapply for sponsorship. If they have continued their growth in their sport and are continuing to play and perform at an elite level, it is likely that they will stay on into the future. We support athletes for a maximum term of 2-3 years.
If circumstances arise by the way of injury, or a dropping in performance, then after the 12 month sponsorship is completed, both parties are usually happy to discontinue the program to enable others to take on the challenge. Both parties will be notified in writing.
If an athlete becomes a professional in their sport and has access to physiotherapy and health care as part of their contract with their team, club or coach, the sponsorship program ends. This enables us to reach as many budding athletes are we can, whilst noting the success stories of our old clients! Of course this is what we were always after and means we all achieved success…
Many professional clients choose to stay on with Mac Physio & Pilates and their individual physiotherapist, which is great!
