Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance of Middletown, Smyrna, and Dover announce their partnership with Delaware Union to support the growth of healthy soccer throughout the state of Delaware.
Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance today announced it will enter into a title sponsorship and partnership with Delaware Union. Premier will provide funding for co-branded game and practice wear, will institute a Premier Healthy Soccer Educational Series for players, parents, and coaches, and will become the provider of Physical Therapy services, Athletic Training outreach and Sports Performance Enhancement programs for Delaware Union players.
Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance is recognized as a leader in clinical excellence in the fields of Physical Therapy, Athletic Training, Sports Performance Enhancement, and Injury Prevention. The partnership will align the expertise of Premier with the success of Delaware Union as a leader in the development of our area youth soccer players. Both organizations are deeply committed to the immediate and future growth of healthy youth sports throughout the State of Delaware.
Serving the communities of Middletown, Smyrna, and Dover, Premier provides individual consultation and custom-developed physical therapy, sports performance enhancement, and injury prevention programs. Through Athletic Training outreach with multiple organizations in the area, Premier gives back to their communities by promotion of healthy athletics. Premier serves physical therapy patients of all ages and physical levels, and welcomes sports performance clients from the serious soccer player to the young recreational athlete to the senior athlete. Every appointment is scheduled with a licensed Physical Therapist, and patients and athletes alike are able to stay with their Physical Therapist for all appointments.
The founders and partners at Premier have taken their belief in a scientific but caring approach to treatment with top notch Physical Therapists with extended credentials and made it the basis of their philosophy for all of their programs. Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance now has a team of fourteen Physical Therapists, twelve of which are graduates of University of Delaware’s 2nd nationally ranked Physical Therapy program, two highly qualified Athletic Trainers who are involved in their outreach community efforts, and two Performance Enhancement Specialists who provide excellence in sports performance enhancement and injury prevention for athletes. Each clinician has extended credentials or is on track to achieve those credentials within the first three years of employment at Premier. “At Premier we have assembled the strongest team of clinicians in the State of Delaware all of whom are at the top of their field yet care so much about their patients, their athletes, and their community, said founding partner Dr. Tom Windley. Partner and Director of the Dover Premier office, Wayne Woodzell, said, “Our clinicians are the foundation of our excellence in caring for people, and we believe that excellence will benefit the healthy growth of soccer throughout the state of Delaware in partnership with the Delaware Union youth and their families.”
Premier was the title sponsor and partner of the Central Delaware Soccer Association (CDSA) before its merger with Delaware Union. “It was an easy decision for Delaware Union to expand on the CDSA partnership with Premier Physical Therapy and Sports Performance, given their previous support of CDSA and their history of consistently supporting youth programs in each of the three local communities in which they practice”, said Brian Housler, Delaware Union President. Mr. Housler continued, “Premier’s investment in the Delaware Union Way is a major milestone for the growth of our club in the region and aligns us with a community partner to grow with for years to come.” Director of Coaching, Bill Boyer added, “Premier and Delaware Union both embrace the vision of Delaware Union to continue with a local business sponsorship program in addition to Premier’s partnership. Those local sponsors have long been an important part of the club’s history and will continue.”
Windley and Mike Womer, executive Director of Delaware Union, echoed that the partnership is borne in an adoption of very similar, community focused initiatives for growth of health in their communities. They believe the partnership will only enhance both of their abilities to continue to give back.
