Youth female athletes who participate in basketball, soccer and softball are up to 4.5 times more at risk of sustaining an ACL injury compared to male athletes playing the same sports. Research has shown that a targeted 6 week training program can reduce this risk of injury by 74%.
Improper jumping and landing mechanics, lack of mobility and muscle group imbalances are the leading predictors for an injury, though they are not the only factors. The majority of ACL injuries may occur because the player jumps or lands incorrectly, or they do not have the strength to control their body during activities such as cutting, accelerating or decelerating.
A strength, flexibility and agility training program can improve overall performance while helping to reduce the risk for injury. Sport-specific training will ensure that demands are met for each individual.
This program is designed for female student athletes (ages 14-22) interested in participating in a program to decrease risk for an ACL injury or return to play after an ACL injury.
