It’s that time a year again, the 10th annual Park City Extreme Soccer Tournament will be held in Park City August 1st-3rd. We at Alpine Sports Medicine are really excited to continue to provide the medical coverage and have 10 athletic trainers for 8 venues in Park City and surrounding areas.
The tournament has become very popular, not only for Utah teams, but several teams come from out-of-state to stay and play in Park City. This year not only did the tournament have to add a new venue in Heber, but we (ASM) are adding more athletic trainers to make sure we provide quality medical coverage at all the venues along with those with multiple fields and older age groups. No one wants injuries, but with a high level of competition and fatigue as the tournament progresses, injuries happen. We treat not only athletes, but have taped up several referee’s and spectator’s.
Alpine Sports Medicine is also available for free injury assessments in the clinic for all athletes and have a list of local medical providers if further care or treatment is necessary.
It has been wonderful to be able to support the Park City Soccer Club and their tournament, along with this great community we live in. We wish all the teams good luck and a hat’s off to the Park City Soccer Club for putting on one of the best tournament’s in the state of Utah!
