Jeff Boele-Licensed Massage Therapist
When: Tuesday's at practice throughout the season.
Why: To benefit individual athlete health during the XC season.
Who: Anyone on the team needing work done during the season.
Cost: Coach Boele will be at practice 18 different Tuesday's this spring. We compensate coach Boele $4500 for his efforts ($250 for a three hour session) throughout the season. This is far cheaper than the cost of athletes seeing a therapist on their own.
Booster Club Payment: If you are seeking treatment from Coach Boele this spring please make a donation of $100 or more to the Track and Field Booster Club. These funds go to compensate Coach Boele for his time and efforts with our team this spring.
