Preface by Janx…..
This past year Jamie was the team Physio for our U18 State team for South Australia that I was also the Head Coach for. Jamie was outstanding in his role and really helped the team perform. I also value that staff are liked and build positive, professional relationships with athletes as I feel this helps them feel comfortable, enjoy their experience and therefore perform better. Jamie was very well liked and respected by athletes and staff alike, whilst been very professional and demanding of the athletes when it was in their interest for him to be. During National Championships I heavily lean on staff to undertake their areas of expertise with excellence and demand that. I want our experts to be a part of the team and offer their expertise and advice at will. Jamie certainly exceeded expectations. He took a holistic approach to athlete support from diet, fluid intake, sleep, schedules etc. Of course there was the standard work of the physio including pregame warmups, massage to support recovery, injury diagnosis, post-game recovery, treatment etc. etc. I felt we had one of the best in the field in Jamie and in the occasional down time I really appreciated to getting to know him, how motivated and driven he is, his passion for his work and his time with the Milwaukee Bucks.
