Injuries are a Serious Threat to Youth Sports Enjoyment
We want our kids to have fun playing sports.
Sports are intense. Conditioning starts early, long practices are grueling and the competition is fierce. But this hard work also has enormous benefits: physical development, learning teamwork, and boosting self-esteem are just a few.
It makes sense to do everything we can to ensure our kid athlete is equipped to fully participate in their favorite sport!
Parents, Make Sure Your Athletes are Engaging in Injury Prevention
There are many ways to prevent injury. The trainers at Center for Physical Rehabilitation agree with other experts that learning proper technique and age-appropriate strength training are key ways to keep your young athlete healthy.
This type of athletic development leads to increased flexibility and stability, and most importantly – it builds confidence!
My kids are still at the “sit and pick daisies during soccer practice” stage. When they start to take the game more seriously, I will be searching for ways to keep them protected. Injuries can strike at all ages and skill levels, so it is best to be prepared.
CPR’s “FAST” Program (Functional Athletic Strength Training) Equips Youth Athletes With Injury Prevention Know-How
The FAST program is designed to enhance long-term athletic development in a small group setting. The winter program begins on January 28 and runs twice a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays 4:30-5:30) for 6 weeks total.
Your young athlete will gain confidence as they learn the principals to proper weight lifting and the importance of strength training, in conjunction with overall fitness conditioning. The program focuses on:
- proper technique for injury prevention
- building stability
- Strengthening muscles
