NXTsports and Premier Orthopaedic Sports and Medicine are proud to announce an unprecedented partnership focusing on youth sports safety and athlete care. Under the partnership Premier becomes the official orthopaedic provider of NXTsports, and all of NXT’s participating athletes and their families will have unprecedented access to orthopaedic resources and care.
NXTsports has become one of the nation’s leading youth sports education and event management companies, and has taken a leadership role on mandating participant safety measures in youth sports. The partnership between NXT and Premier furthers NXT’s safety initiative and streamlines orthopaedic care for NXT families. Under the partnership, Premier will provide an orthopaedic concierge service for NXT athletes and their families. All NXT family members will be supplied with a direct hotline providing them with instant access to Premier’s network of services and doctors, and ensuring that NXT families receive priority status and access to the best orthopaedic care in the Delaware Valley.
In addition, all Premier and NXT will collaborate to provide baseline concussion testing for NXT Lacrosse Club players in order to monitor and ultimately lower the risk of concussions. The Premier/NXT partnership will include health and wellness seminars during NXT events designed for participating athletes, parents, coaches, and all event attendees. Premier will also provide ongoing educational services for NXT’s Lacrosse Club on injury prevention, nutrition and athlete development. Finally, NXT will updated its event emergency procedures to ensure that any athlete injured at a NXT event in Greater Philadelphia can receive prompt attention at a Premier Urgent Care Center.
In reflection of Premier’s commitment to the partnership with NXT, all NXT’s elite high school lacrosse club teams will proudly wear the Premier logo on their new state-of the-art Nike uniforms.
