Edmonton, AB (October 15, 2013) – FC Edmonton is proud to announce its new partnership with River Valley Health (RVH), an Edmonton-based performance facility aimed to provide integrated performance training, injury treatment, athlete health, nutrition and sport psychology to elite athletes.
“The FC Edmonton organization is such a strong contributor to our community; not only as a competitive franchise but also as supporters of our minor soccer programs, elite player development programs and our local charities,” River Valley Health General Manager Kristen Specht said. “The organization is committed to positioning professional soccer as a viable and vibrant contributor to Edmonton’s sport scene and RVH is thrilled to be a partner in the club’s continued success. We are confident that this partnership and our comprehensive athlete performance programs will assist the club in attracting, retaining and developing the highest caliber athletes.”
“We’re thrilled to be on-board with RVH and look forward to having our athletes take advantage of their professional facilities and staff,” said FCE General Manager Rod Proudfoot.
RVH was founded in 2002 by Dr. Derek Lampshire, who envisioned a facility that would change the field of injury recovery and athlete performance in Edmonton. Four expansions and 11 years later, RVH is now a comprehensive sport performance facility, seamlessly integrating performance training, injury recovery, athlete health and sport psychology. The RVH foundation is built on the belief that everyone is an athlete, and that every athlete – amateur to Olympian – deserves access to the best training and care. At RVH, athletes of all levels get the tools that they need to achieve amazing results.
