Lane United and Slocum Establish Partnership
Lane United FC has established a partnership with the Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine. Drs. Brick Lantz, Thomas Macha and Daniel Fitzpatrick, sports medicine surgeons at Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine, will serve as official team physicians for Lane United FC. At least one of the doctors will be present at each of the team’s eight home matches.
“We are thrilled to partner with Oregon’s premier sports medicine provider,” said Dave Galas, Lane United’s managing director. “Our partnership with Slocum ensures excellent medical care for the Reds’ players over the course of the season.”
As part of the partnership, Slocum will also provide athletes from KidSports, the Eugene-based youth sports non-profit organization, the opportunity to attend and participate in home matches throughout the year. KidSports will receive a block of tickets to each Sunday home match, and KidSports athletes will participate in pre-game and halftime activities. Slocum will also be a kit sponsor for Lane United’s youth jerseys, which will be available for purchase by the general public.
As the region’s most preferred orthopedic provider, Slocum Center for Orthopedics & Sports Medicine and its 23 highly trained and skilled orthopedic specialists offers care for the shoulder, elbow, hand and wrist, hip, knee, foot and ankle and are the Orthopedic Team Physicians for University of Oregon Athletics.
