PHILADELPHIA (January 27, 2021) – The NISA (National Independent Soccer Association) Nation today announced a partnership with Go4 as an official athletic trainer services provider for NISA Nation and its Member Clubs. The partnership gives NISA Nation and affiliated amateur clubs on-demand access to over 14,000 athletic trainers currently on the Go4 platform.
“This partnership is crucial to assisting all athletic trainer roles are filled at all times for NISA Nation affiliated clubs,” said NISA Nation Managing Director Jonathan Rednour. “NISA Nation clubs in the Northeast Region used Go4 quite a bit in the fall season. It helped solve a lot of challenges as amateur clubs don’t usually have a full-time athletic trainer. Prohibitive travel expenses and pandemic restrictions also make having this avenue to top-tier athletic trainers an in-season necessity.”
Go4 is the only platform built to make it easy for leagues, schools, companies and organizations to connect with athletic trainers. In turn, Go4 makes it easy for athletic trainers to connect with per diem opportunities throughout the nation, and is the preferred per diem partner of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association. More than 3,000 companies have used the Go4 platform to hire healthcare professionals, including USA Football and U.S. Lacrosse.
“We are excited to be working alongside the NISA Nation to continue prioritizing the health and safety of their amateur athletes across the country,” said Ricky Schwartzberg, Director of National Accounts at Go4. “Go4 has transformed the on-demand healthcare model enabling athletic trainers to work more per diem, which will help NISA Nation and its athletes to receive the proper medical care and treatment they need whether at practices or games.”
NISA and Go4 also will collaborate on an internal safety survey to better understand safety issues, concerns and awareness and drive applicable safety educational content to NISA members.
The mission of Go4 is to protect athletes by making it possible to get Athletic Trainers on every sideline, everywhere. The Go4 platform connects Athletic Trainers with teams and organizations that need Athletic Trainers for games, practices, camps and tournaments. Athletic Trainers set up a profile; including licensure, credentials and proof of liability insurance. Event operators post work opportunities, set their own pay rates and the platform handles all the paperwork. Go4 is the official per diem platform of the National Athletic Trainers’ Association.
