Students from Life Chiropractic College West’s Sports Performance Institute (SPI) were on hand earlier this summer for Dew Tour (above left) and AVP (above right) events in California, where the aspiring chiropractors were given chances to apply their skills and assist with giving care to the athletes at both events.
Recognized as one of the top extreme sports circuits in the country, Dew Tour returned to Long Beach in June 2019. The event featured four days of skateboarding on both street and bowl courses, as well as a team challenge that pitted some of the top brands in the industry against one another.
The AVPFirst National Championships, competitive beach volleyball tournaments for youths, were held in July in Hermosa Beach. The event drew hundreds of the top players from around the country and across nine different divisions, capping off the 2018-19 season, which began the previous June. The program offers young athletes the opportunity to compete at the highest level and work their way into collegiate beach volleyball programs. It also serves as a national pipeline for the AVP Pro Beach Volleyball Tour.
Life West’s presence at the events continues strong partnerships between the Sports Performance Institute and both Dew Tour and AVPFirst officials. SPI Director Scott Lessard, DC, is a faculty member at the college.
