From the 29th of March until the 1st of July, Digital Realty Netball Umpire Ella Baensch completed work experience with the Academy’s official health partner Sydney West Sports Medicine.

The year 10 student is interested in pursuing a career as a physiotherapist and after attending an education session presented by one of the SWSM team members Ella got in contact to see if they could help!

Ella followed physiotherapist Matthew Hicks and experienced what it’s like to be a physio. She had the opportunity to watch rehabilitation work, aquatic rehabilitation¬†and also had the short opportunity to work with the exercise physiologist in which she was able to help with different exercises for patients.

Upon completing her work experience Ella commented saying that “the team at Sydney West Sports Medicine were very welcoming and friendly which made me feel very comfortable. I thoroughly enjoyed the week and found interest in everything that I had experienced.”

Thank you to our partners at Sydney West Sports Medicine for helping our athletes achieve their goals!
