The Qusai Initiative’s mission is to create a staff of qualified and proficient athletic trainers capable of treating sports injuries suffered by athletes during sporting events. 

This mission will be carried out on two parallel paths, through the enrolment of all athletic trainers in advanced evidence based courses and by establishing medical service centers in all sports facilities in ِthe Kingdom.

 

Qualify staff so that they are capable of treating any injury players might have, God forbids, while participating in sports exercises and tournaments. For this purpose, sports therapists will undertake advanced courses in sports paramedics and first aid, whereas medical centers in cities and sport complexes across Jordan will be established to provide treatment services.

Upgrade the readiness quotient of sports paramedics to improve their experiences, disseminate the culture of health education among athletes based on international criteria and adopt advanced treatment techniques that rely on proved medical evidence.
