TESC Parents Meeting - Thursday, Sept. 18th @ 7:00 PM
by posted 09/04/2014
 

 

TESC is excited to announce the visit of bestselling author and speaker John O’Sullivan to our club on September 17-18, 2014 for 2 nights of coaching and parent education for our club. The Parents Session will be Thursday, Sept 18th at 7:00 PM for all TESC parents, and will be held at York HS Auditorium (St. Charles Rd - Enter door 2) in Elmhurst.
 
 
We are very excited to have John visit, and we are asking that one parent from each TESC family attend this event.  Please RSVP to your TESC Staff Coach/Manager within the next week so we can plan accordingly for the evening.
 
 
John is the author of the national bestselling book Changing the Game: The Parents Guide to Raising Happy, High-Performing Athletes and Giving Youth Sports Back to Our Kids, as well as a contributing writer for the Huffington Post, Soccer  America, and NSCAA Soccer Journal.  John is also a nationally recognized speaker, presenting across the country for organizations such as the TEDx Talks, NSCAA,  IMG   Academy, United Soccer Leagues, and more.  He is a former college and professional soccer player, and has spent the past 20 years coaching on the youth, high school and college level.  In early 2013 he left his position with the Portland Timbers of MLS to concentrate full time on the Changing the Game Project, his initiative to educate parents and coaches on creating a “player-first” environment that creates a more positive experience for athletes.
 
 
John will be discussing the ways we can help our athletes perform to their potential, while at the same time giving children ownership and enjoyment of their sports experience.  He will be presenting the latest science and psychology on performance and athletic development, and helping our club to come up with ways to create a great environment for our players, coaches and families.  John invites you to visit his website and blog at www.ChangingTheGameProject.com to find out more.
 
 
If you are interested in hearing a bit of John’s message, here is John’s recent TED talk called “Changing the Game in Youth Sports”:
 
 
 
 
Here are a couple of articles you might find interesting regarding youth soccer, and youth sports:
 
 
 
 
 
 
After the event, John will have signed copies of his book available for purchase at the discounted price of $15, or if you already have a copy, he invites you to bring it and he will sign that one for you.
 
 
We hope you will be able to come out and hear this positive, player-first message, and we look forward to seeing you on September 18!

Olympia PT offering prescreening Concussion Baseline Test
by posted 08/22/2013
 
TESC Parents and Players: 
 
TESC is proud to announce an official partnership with the Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy group.  In Elmhurst, the group has 2 clinics including Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy and Jevitz Chiropractic and Physical Therapy.
 
Combined, the Olympia group has over 40 years of experience in treating athletes including soccer players from AYSO to the professional level. The partnership with the Olympia group looks to grow our education and resources for the coaches, players and parents in the club.  In doing so, all TESC coaches have been trained and have been provided with Injury protocols to aid them in the event of any minor, major or head injury.  Olympia will also be hosting periodic seminars for coaches, players and parents on how to prevent injury, staying healthy and athletic specific nutrition so that we can focus on taking TESC and our players to the next level.  

This upcoming Fall Season TESC players U13 and above have the opportunity to take a Concussion Baseline ImPACT Test.   
 
ImPACT's Test is a computerized concussion test and takes about 25 minutes to complete.  ImPACT tests are administered by an ImPACT trained athletic trainer of Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy. Baseline tests are suggested every two years.  If a concussion is suspected, the baseline report will serve as a comparison to a repeat ImPACT test, which professionals can use to assess potential changes or damage caused by a concussion. 
 
  • Measures player symptoms
  • Measures verbal and visual memory, processing speed, and reaction time
  • Reaction time measured to a 1/100th of second
We recommend players from ages 12 and up receive the baseline test should they choose. 
 
The ImPACT tests are NO CHARGE to all Team Elmhurst Players as part of the health care partnership we have formed this season. 
 
To make an appointment to get the baseline testing done: 
1.) Call 630-833-4437
2.) Ask to schedule a Concussion Test
3.) All tests are done at Olympia Chiropractic & Physical Therapy, 
     533 S. York, St Elmhurst
4.) Allow 25 min for test

Included in the partnership is NO CHARGE Injury Assessments for any coach, player or parent. This will allow TESC and you the parent, to be sure that an injury has been diagnosed properly and that the proper care can be received by a licensed professional.  In the event of an injury you will receive a call from your respective coach and a call to either Olympia or Jevitz can be made to have you or your athlete seen within a 24-36 hour time period (if not sooner).  The no charge injury assessment will include all the necessary tests and x-rays if needed to help diagnosis the injury.
 
TESC is constantly trying to grow and give our athletes the best resources possible!  We are excited about our new partnership as we hope you are as well!   Olympia is located at 533 S. York St with clinical director, Dr. Mike Calcagno - 630-833-4437.  The Jevitz location is located at 135 S.
