Injury Prevention and Performance Enhancement Program (2012-2006)
An increasing number of athletes (12 and older) have their season cut short due to anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries each year. Our Injury Prevention & Performance Enhancement Program is specific to the sport of soccer. Besides being effective in preventing injuries, it is very effective in performance enhancement. The program has 3-4 phases and every 2 weeks players will progress to the next phase of neuromuscular training that is proven to benefit athletes. The structure itself includes a dynamic warm-up, jumping and cutting mechanics, strengthening of muscle groups that research finds soccer players are lacking the most, and of course, stretching.
