Team based on the context of the environment.

Team members:
Athlete and Coach
Sports physician
Physiotherapist
Podiatrist
Orthopaedic Surgeon
Massage therapist
Radiologist
Dietitian
Psychologist
Sports Scientist

Also:
Dentist
Optometrist
Chiropractor

Team members often multi-skilled with overlap (esp if access to some professionals limited due to geographic isolation)

Helpful if members of the team appreciate and understand the skills, physical and mental demands of sporting activities - ideally as an athlete; or at least attending training and competition.
