Sports Medicine

Club Ohio is pleased to have an exclusive partnership with OhioHealth Sports Medicine.  They are experts with our young athletes.  Over the weekend of the tournament, their trainers will be stationed at each of our sites to provide any on-site medical treatment.  In addition, they have several urgent care locations around the city and first-class hospitals.

Tournament Awards

  • For the safety of players and parents, there will be no formal presentations of awards as is usually done.
  • For brackets with a Championship Final match, awards will be delivered to the field at the completion of the competition for distribution by the coach. Coaches or team managers, please take your team to an area far away from the field as there may be a match following yours.
  • For Round Robin brackets, 1st and 2nd place teams need to send one representative to the site’s headquarters to pick up medals to take back to their team for distribution.
  • Photos with the Finalist and Champion banners near the park’s HQ, and in the case of Spindler, they will be set up near the North and South (HQ) Shelter Houses (see field map) so we can spread out any team groups that want a picture.
