Carolina Rapids Soccer Club increases partnership with Novant Health

Novant Health, an industry leading healthcare company serving North Carolina, Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia, has added sports performance training to their existing partnership with Carolina Rapids.

The Novant Health network consists of 14 medical centers and more than 1,500 physicians in 470 locations across the Southeastern United States. As part of the Carolina Rapids partnership, Novant Health will provide sports performance training led by performance specialists from Novant Health Sports & Performance Medicine powered by EXOS.

In 2016, Novant Health engaged EXOS, a leader in human performance, to bring performance training programs and services to the Charlotte area. The program, Novant Health Sports & Performance Medicine powered by EXOS, provides local youth, high school, college and professional athletes, teams, active adults and local companies with training programs utilizing EXOS’ methodology that has supported elite champions around the world, the U.S. military and leading global corporations. By combining Novant Health’s sports medicine expertise with EXOS’ highly skilled team of performance specialists, Novant Health is able to offer a premiere program that greatly benefits school age and professional athletes, and active adults.

“We’re blessed to have fantastic partners like Novant Health in our community.  The support they provide our club, staff and members is unquantifiable,” said Thomas Finlay, Executive Director of the Carolina Rapids Soccer Club.  “This addition to our relationship will take the level of commitment towards our competitive players to a whole new level, starting fall of 2017.  Moving forward to see all of our senior boys and girls enter the first class Novant Health Sports & Performance Medicine powered by EXOS facility in Huntersville on a weekly basis will create an immediate positive impact on the player and the person.  Performance training of this nature will increase the overall athlete component of the soccer player while looking to reduce non-contact injuries”  

“Novant Health’s deep commitment to proactive health and wellness reflects in our community partnerships, like the one we have with Carolina Rapids,” said Greg Bielec, Director of Rehabilitation & Sports Medicine for Novant Health in the Greater Charlotte Market.  “We are excited to add performance training to our existing partnership with the organization and look forward to keeping the athletes healthy with our world-class health care and performance services.”
