How’s your week going?
If you or your team was in Washington, DC – how did the tournament go?
I have been talking a lot lately about ACL injuries and female athletes
I am very passionate about educating and getting the information out there, so athletes, coaches and parents know exactly what they should be doing to help reduce their risk of injury
I had a great conversation with Noah Harrison, a Physical Therapist and strength coach out of Portland, Maine about reducing the risk of the ACL injury
Noah will be doing a lecture and hands on presentation as part of The Female Sports Performance Workshop on August 12th in Kennebunk, Maine on this exact topic
In our 20 minute conversation, Noah and I discussed:
* His presentation on August 12th and what he will be teaching the attendees
* Why the ACL injury is on the rise
* 3 things we can do right now to help prevent these injuries
* Why we need to get this information out there so we can educate coaches and parents (we know the statistics)
* Ankle Mobility and how it plays into injuries
* Why we need to respect the injury (looking beyond the injury) and how these athletes feel 20-30 years from now and being active
* Looking at these females as life long athletes
If you want to hear Noah speak and 4 other experts (including myself), check out The Female Sports Performance Workshop HERE!
I will be presenting with Noah on A Better Alternative to Olympic Lifting: Kettlebells
If you have questions about the workshop, feel free to shoot me an email
As for our discussion on the ACL, let me know your thoughts?
As a coach, did your know the statistics and why sports performance training is so improvement?
As an athlete, do you strength train, condition, work on performance and work on preventing an injury?
I look forward to hearing from you,
Your friend and coach,
