The Capilano University Blues Department of Athletics and Recreation is pleased to announce the hiring of Ayesha Koome as Athletic Therapist.
A graduate of Camosun College where she earned a Bachelor's degree in Athletic and Exercise Therapy, Koome is a Canadian Certified Athletic Therapist and Canadian Certified High Performance Clinical Exercise Physiologist. She is also a certified first responder and qualified in CPR/AED use.
“We are excited to have Ayesha on board for this upcoming season,” said CapU Manager of Athletics and Recreation Milt Williams. “Finding a qualified therapist at this level is not easy, and we consider ourselves very lucky to have found a quality trainer in Ayesha. We look forward to having her join us on the CapU campus in August.”
In addition to her work with the Blues, Koome oversees athletic therapy for Field Hockey Canada's junior and senior men's Olympic teams and has done work internationally with those clubs at events from London to Los Angeles. She is the head athletic therapist at the Delta Hockey Academy, does clinical work with 4D Fitness Sport and Rehab and works in the Cancer Recovery Program at Treloar Physiotherapy.
Koome also has PACWEST experience having worked with Langara College athletics therapy and was the onsite therapist for the 2019 CCAA national basketball championships in Langley, B.C.
“The Blues Athletics program is a leader when it comes to the standard of care and resources provided to their student-athletes so I’m excited to join the team,” said Koome. “The COVID-19 protocols we’ll be following make this a unique time to get started but I plan to continue providing a high level of care for our student-athletes this coming season.”
Koome replaces outgoing athletic therapist Jamie Johnson who spent five years with the Blues Athletics department before recently moving on to pursue private clinical work.
