The Sports Medicine Center at Children's Colorado recently announced a partnership with REAL Colorado EDGE Soccer Club based in Northern Colorado.

Children’s Colorado will provide an athletic trainer at Stenger Soccer Complex home games during the league season, at hosted tournaments and at the REAL EDGE Soccer Club office one day per week for visits. 

More accessible care

“This partnership will greatly benefit our athletes by providing immediate evaluation of any injuries,” said REAL Edge staff in a recent club newsletter. “The athletic trainer will be a part of the club and will be able to develop relationships with coaches, players and parents that are important for the well-being of the athlete and make care more accessible.”

Children’s Colorado will also provide educational content for members in all newsletters, over social media properties and during parent educational nights. This content will help members stay informed and on top of the latest trends and treatments.

“This partnership comes at an exciting time for Children's Colorado,” said Christy Dobson, director of Corporate and Community Relations at Children’s Colorado. “It coincides with the expansion of our North Campus location in Broomfield and is part of the ongoing efforts to bring world-class care to communities that have a gap in pediatric health services. With new partnerships and new facilities, we are positioning ourselves as the primary resource for pediatric care in our seven-state region and beyond.”
