Oakwood Sports Medicine is the exclusive healthcare provider for the Canton Cup. Again this year, we will have certified athletic trainers at each of the venues for all games, to attend to the health needs of the players, answer questions, provide injury evaluation, recommendations and follow-up care as necessary. Stop by and visit our medical tents during the tournament!
The weekend forecast is calling for high temps and humidity. Be sure to hydrate the night before your game, bring plenty of cool water for in-game hydration. Once your game is over a sports drink can help replenish lost fluids and more importantly the electrolytes lost through sweating. Fresh fruit like bananas, oranges, kiwi and grapes have high levels of vitamins and water content – great for in-between game snacks.
This year marks the 5th year Oakwood Sports Medicine has been involved with the Canton Cup Memorial Weekend Soccer Tournament. We are proud to work with such a dedicated group of people in support of the largest soccer tournament in the midwest.
