The Coaches Club

Two things I love professionally: working with athletes and collaborative learning and creation. Sitting around with a passionate group of professionals discussing, learning, debating... it is one of my favorite things to do. 

I have experienced the power of a high-quality community for growth and learning. It changed my career! 

To have a place where you can ask questions without being looked down upon, test new ideas, and be at the forefront of learning yet in a structured way.

We built this community to be that place.  Join the Coaches Club today!

Rebel PT Roadmap Course

You may have already tried changing jobs, talked to your manager, or read books or blog posts on how to overcome the pit of your stomach feeling of not liking what you are doing everyday. It just feels hopeless.

The first thing you need to know is that it is ok to not want to be in full time patient care or to be seeing only a very specific type of patient. It doesn’t mean you are not meant to be a physical therapist or that you wasted your education. It actually means that you are about to embark on something spectacular.

Return to Sport and Discharge Testing

When can I fully return to my activity? It's a simple question with a complex answer. Could you imagine knowing how to make the return-to-activity decision confidently and concretely so the patient, parent, and physician all agree?

You can dramatically impact your patients' health and reduce reinjury rates by making evidence-based discharge and return-to-sport decisions. There is no guesswork; there is a data-driven decision. This course will lay the foundation to help you develop a scientific decision-making process, select evidence-based tests, and apply them to patient care.

Meet Phil!

I'm a physical therapist, athletic trainer, strength and conditioning coach, and Associate Professor in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program at the University of Evansville.

 

As a performance systems consultant with all major professional sports and the military,  my passion is teaching athletes how to elevate their game to the next level.

 

Additionally, I help rehabilitation and performance professionals maximize their client’s physical potential by teaching them how to live a fully engaged life, systematic thinking, testing and interventions so that they and their clients can remain healthy, fit, and well.

More About Me

Dan Marr

"Dr. Plisky’s expertise and proficiency with the Y Balance Test has become an integral part of the NHL Combine screening procedures. His level of professionalism in administering  large group screening is unparalleled and provides vital insights on athletes. His presence in overseeing the testing instills confidence in the process and results with both athletes and strength and conditioning specialists alike."

 

 Teena Murray

Sr. VP of Integrated Performance, Pittsburgh Penguins

“Phil brings a unique approach to the table. As an athletic trainer, physical therapist and strength coach, he is able to connect across the spectrum of injury, prevention, and performance, speaking the language needed to engage, educate and empower all members of the group/team. I have leaned on Phil many times in many scenarios, and trust his ability to make an impact.”

 

Jon Torine

Former NFL Head Strength & Conditioning Coach, World Champion Indianapolis Colts

"In life there are people that you know you can go to that can solve problems, offer wisdom, expertise, and make the complicated simple.  Through my 25 years of coaching, 17 in the NFL, consulting and implementing systems across youth, college and pro sports I’ve been fortunate to have a few of those people. I am honored to say that Phil Plisky is one of those guys. Phil has an easy to understand brilliance and way of working with people that both puts them at ease and challenges you to look at multiple perspectives. When it comes to testing, assessments, return to play, injury reduction, and improving athletes health and efficiency there are few I trust as much as Phil."
