Okay, while much of my focus has moved toward working with older adults (folks in the general neighborhood of 40-70 give or take…), I’m still a (somewhat on the old side) dad with a 3 year old daughter and a very vested interest in the health and welfare of young athletes, particularly teen athletes. Folks, we continue to see an epidemic of youth sports injuries — many of which should not happen. Among teenage girls alone, knee injuries not caused by any sort of contact are just out of control.
That’s the bad news and you probably don’t need to go to far in your own circle of friends to find a young athlete with a fairly serious injury. But here is the good news, we can dramatically lower the risk of non contact injuries by properly educating young athletes in correct movement patterns and training specifically for flexibility, agility and strength. Recent studies have shown the risk to decrease by 70% or more simply by doing the right things in the off season AND not leaving them behind during the season.
Let’s start to fix this now. Here’s the deal. 30 minute sessions, 2 times a week. November – February. Up to 3 athletes per session. For something of this scale, you might quite reasonably expect fees as high as $1200 or more. However, this is personal. I have teenage athletes at home and will for some time to come. Through the end of this month, register your athlete for this off season program for only $199. After November 1st, the price will jump to a more sensible $279. (Note — parents who are already part of our regular programs know that your kids are included in your program — bring them along to your sessions which we will ensure are a good replacement for the semi private sessions at no additional cost .. this applies to new members as well so maybe it’s time for mom and dad to get back in the game too!)
