ACL Injury Prevention Program
On average 70%-78% of ACL injuries occur via a non-contact mechanism (Voskanian, 2013). Women have less muscular development and greater knee flexibility, which may decrease joint stability and hinder proper alignment at the knee joint. Whatever the limiting factor may be, participating in an ACL prevention program has demonstrated a relative risk reduction of 70% in regards to non-contact ACL injury, demonstrating the necessity of their implementation (Cortes, Greska, Onate, et. al, 2012).
The goal of the program is to limit the increased risk of knee injury that occurs more in female athletes. The program will improve flexibility/range of motion and leg/core strength to in turn produce muscle endurance and power for high performance in competition..
Open to all Jaguars girls aged U11 - U19. Athletes will be grouped age appropriate. No registration required.
