Bluecoats & Marching Health Announce Health & Wellness Partnership


Marching Health Will Produce Pre-Season Warm-up Program On The “BluecoatStrong” Platform, Provide AT Interns, Consult

With participant health & wellness at the center of Bluecoats’ focus in 2019, we’re excited to announce that Marching Health will join our roster of sponsors and partners. At the center of this partnership, Marching Health is leading our 2019 participants through its flagship preseason conditioning program “The Ultimate Drum Corps Workout.” This 12-week program, done through the corps’ BluecoatStrong program, is geared toward improving visual performance and preventing early season injuries.

BluecoatStrong began in 2015 as a pre-season workout and visual assignments program administered through Facebook Groups,” said Mike Scott, CEO of Bluecoats. “We’re excited to amplify this programming with the amazing work of Dr. Elliot Cleveland and Marching Health.”

In addition to the preseason BluecoatStrong workout programming, Marching Health will provide Athletic Trainer interns for the corps at Spring Training and as needed on tour. Dr. Elliot Cleveland, physical therapist and the founder of Marching Health, will also serve on the Bluecoats Health & Wellness team in an advisory role.

“After spending time with the Bluecoats organization this past summer, it was apparent that our organizations share similar values,” said Dr. Cleveland. “We both place member health in the drum corps experience as top priorities. We also are both innovators, and want to continually influence growth within the drum corps activity. Marching Health could not be more excited to partner with the Bluecoats for the 2019 season.”

The Marching Health team began programming on BluecoatStrong last week. Bluecoats plans to announce its entire 2019 Health & Wellness team in March.
