Ballarat Sports Medicine have again partnered with Ballarat Basketball to support the Mens’ and Womens’ Ballarat Miners teams for the next two years. The extension of this partnership following a successful 2021/2022 was a priority to ensure that Ballarat’s elite basketballers have immediate local access to specialist Sport & Exercise Medicine care. This includes early assessment and management of injuries, as well as performance-related issues such as diet and sports psychology.
This year Ballarat Sports Medicine is proudly sponsoring Amos Brooks. Amos is a 6’ 7” (201cm) centre in the Mens Miners team. He attended Rend Lake College in Ina, Illinois, USA in 2020 before returning to Victoria to play for the Ballarat Miners since 2022. Amos recently took the time to visit Ballarat Sports Medicine at Novar and met with the team (pictured with Dr Greg Harris and Dr Jai Sharma). We will be following closely as the Miners #20 takes to the court through 2023.
Joining Amos courtside at home games for both the Mens’ and Womens’ teams at Selkirk stadium will be Dr Jai Sharma. Jai is a Sport & Exercise Medicine Registrar, with several years of experience in orthopaedics and emergency medicine. The Miners are in good hands.
