Joe is responsible for managing the relationship with 7 Deadly Spins to ensure LVHN is providing the BEST partnership service to 7 Deadly Spins across all facets
Dr. Nick Slenker is 7 Deadly Spin’s orthopedic physician. Dr. Slenker has served as Lafayette College’s Athletics orthopedic physician for years. Prior to Lafayette, he served as an assistant team physician for the Los Angeles Lakers, the Los Angeles Kings and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
7 Deadly Spins Fastpitch is proud to announce their partnership with Lehigh Valley Health Network Sports Medicine and Performance.
This partnership affords our students and their families the opportunity to access outstanding care through LVHN. “We are very excited about our partnership with LVHN”, said 7DS Owner and lead instructor Alex MacLean, “Steve Hultgren and Bob McClarin have been huge advocates for 7DS, our students and our program.” The partnership is multi-faceted and offers lots of opportunities for 7DS students and their families.
LVHN strength coaches are in-house at 7DS providing Sports Performance classes on a weekly basis. These classes are designed to help athletes reduce the chance of injury by increasing strength and implementing proper movement patterns. Students have already benefited from the Strength and Conditioning classes, especially students Ari and Sophia Casey. Their father Sean said “They were hooked from the first class! The ride home and the rest of the evening they couldn’t stop talking about all the exercises they did and they say the trainers make it fun, challenge them and they look forward to class each week. The passion they show is priceless!”
Through the partnership LVHN Athletic Trainers are on site weekly to treat students and their families for injuries. 7DS and LVHN will host seasonal seminars on injury prevention, nutrition and access to care as well as community outreach programs to impact softball players in our community and beyond. “Giving back is one of our core values and to partner with an organization who shares that value is incredible. I am confident we will make a huge impact on the softball community”, said MacLean “In April we hosted our first event together, the April Thaw Spring Clinic and it was fully booked within 24 hours”.
7DS students and their families have a dedicated orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Nicholas Slenker and a Sports Medicine Family Practice Physician, Dr. Chelsea Evans. Fast track scheduling is available to all 7DS Students and their families. Several 7DS families have taken advantage of these services including student Ryanne Beech who was facing a potential season-ending injury. Ryanne’s mother, Nicole commented "I was amazed at how quickly we were able to get my daughter in for her injury. Alex was able to get us connected with the coordinator at LVHN through text messaging and he responded within 5 minutes! He called with available times and we had a scheduled appointment later that same afternoon! Dr Slenker was patient, easy to speak with, and very encouraging for my young daughter who was worried about her injury. I am thankful for the referral, the fast expedited treatment, and team at LVHN."
