U SPORTS sits down with one key athlete, coach, and staff member of each U SPORTS athletic program in our new interview series "Getting to know…"

 

Name: Chad Newhook

School: Saint Mary's University

Position: Head athletic therapist

Previous job/position: Assistant therapist

Hometown: Corner Brook, N.L.


1. How did you get to your current position, and what do you enjoy most about our job? 

I started at SMU as a volunteer student therapist in 1993. In 1995, the head Athletic Therapist offered me an assistant therapist position which I accepted. In 1997, I took over duties as head athletic therapist and have been here ever since! The thing I enjoy most about my job is working with great colleagues and playing my small part in helping the athletes perform at their best. I value the demographic I work with – young motivated talented athletes. I also work side by side with Kurt Stevenson, who is a good friend and great athletic therapist (he also started as a student with me in 1993).
