EAST WINDSOR, N.J. – New Jersey Youth Soccer and JAG Physical Therapy announced Friday the continuance of a partnership that designates JAG Physical Therapy as the Official Injury Prevention and Physical Therapy Provider for the organization.

Through the relationship, JAG Physical Therapy supports a variety of NJ Youth Soccer events and provides content to educate its membership about health and wellness. JAG sponsors a Comeback Player of the Year Award that honors a player at the NJ Youth Soccer annual awards dinner.

“I’ve had the honor of working with John and JAG Physical Therapy for nearly 20 years, dating back to my career at Major League Soccer,” NJ Youth Soccer executive director Evan Dabby said. “John was a key figure in building the professional league’s sports medicine program, and I am excited that his expertise will help enhance our player safety and health related educational effort.”

Another element of this relationship is that JAG Physical Therapy will continue to provide injury prevention messages for players and coaches within the NJ Youth Soccer system.

“We are very excited for our continued partnership with NJ Youth Soccer,” said John Gallucci Jr., president and CEO of JAG Physical Therapy. “Our collaboration and commitment to providing New Jersey’s youth soccer players with injury prevention education remains a top priority as we strive to keep our soccer athletes healthy, on the field and doing what they love.”
