Namibia Chiropractic Sports Association
Background: The primary function of the FICS Executive Council (ExCo) is oversight of the organisation's strategic direction to grow the sports chiropractic community on the world stage. The FICS Regional representatives are members of the FICS Exco, and their primary responsibility is to be the connection between the FICS ExCo and the NCSC. These reports help your Regional Representative stay connected to your NCSC strengths, weaknesses/challenges, opportunities, and tactics that the NCSC is facing. We encourage you to reach out to your FICS Regional Representative to discuss any issues you are facing so that they can contact you and discuss this at a mutually convenient time.
Please stay connected with your FICS Regional Representative and invite them to a couple of your board meetings each year so we can build that strong connection, awareness and communication link. This online reporting template is a tool to raise reporting and does not replace the interaction between the Regions and the FICS Regional Representative. This process enables FICS and the NCSC to create a strong working relationship to provide continuous support and feedback to serve and grow the broader sports chiropractic community.
Instructions: The NCSC quarterly report has two sections:
Part I. Activities which the NCSC are working on or have been doing in the past quarter.
Part II. Areas with which the NCSC would like FICS assistance. This part will assist FICS in supporting your NCSC and sharing resources for the growth of sports chiropractic.
If there is no activity in the last quarter, a "NA" response is sufficient. However, before you list "NA", please consider any significant information/developments concerning your NCSC and sports chiropractic during this period. You may consider including any updates on projects you are working on or issues that your NCSC reported on in previous reports, which are still ongoing.
How the reports are used:
These reports are tabled and discussed by the ExCo at quarterly meetings with follow-up by the ExCo Regional Representative.

From the 23rd to 26th of September 2021 the Namibian National Swimming Championships were held in Swakopmund. This was the first official competition that most swimmers competed in since the end of February 2021. Spirits were high and swimmers were in top form achieving personal best times across the board. I, Dr Elga Drews, had the privilege to serve the swimmers in my professional capacity. Namibia's long distance open water Olympic swimmer, Phillip Seidler, also attended and was in need of some good chiropractic care after 2 grueling months qualifying and preparing for the Olympics. I used Boiron's Arnicare Cream to assist the swimmers with their sore and stiff muscles. My work with the swimmers was highly appreciated and the swimmers were so grateful that somebody could take care of their aches and pains.
