Texas Children’s Hospital- Our New Medical Team

TCH_TheWoodlands_Vertical_1L

We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Texas Children’s Hospital- Sports Medicine Team. The team consists of an Athletic Trainer,  Susan Niles and Dr. Kristin Ernest. During our home matches, we will now have a dedicated team on the sidelines to assess and treat injured players.  Because a child’s bones, muscles, brain and other organs are different than an adult, they respond much differently to injuries, stress and athletic training, and require comprehensive, specialized treatment.

 

Having the TCH med team present helps all our players who sustain any type of  injury get the care they need and they will be a great resource for follow-up care, if needed.

Welcome to the pitch, Texas Children’s Hospital. We hope you enjoy our fast paced matches!

Photo Gallery

We are so very  fortunate to have parents show us their photographic talents and share those pictures with us.  Most notably, Chuck Macune takes some incredible action shots and we are ever grateful for his time and talent.  To check out the galleries please click here and you will be directed to our SmugMug site.
