Zac first joined the University of Worcester as a student in 2016 on the BSc Sports Therapy course. After graduating in 2019, he joined the staff team as a Technical Demonstrator for Sports Therapy before progressing into a lecturing role in 2022.
Whilst studying the Sports Therapy degree, Zac committed himself to gaining as much experience as possible during his studies, finishing with three times the required placement hours logged and two academic scholarships. This has led to Zac working in professional rugby and cricket, semi-professional rugby and football, and amateur and youth rugby and football. Zac also took an opportunity to work in disability sport during 2018, with placements with the England Visually Impaired and England Learning Difficulties cricket teams.
Internally, Zac has experience working closely with the Worcester Wolves Men’s team as well as managing the massage and injury clinics that are open to staff, students and members of the public.
Externally, Zac is the Lead Sports Therapist at Bromsgrove RFC and has worked freelance across the country in Rugby 7s Festivals, British Basketball Finals and with GB American Football.
Zac’s interests in the field focus around sport rehabilitation, strength and conditioning, first aid, sporting injuries and biomechanics.
