Valuable student-athlete training camp to prevent knee injuries          Send a link to a friend

[May 23, 2007]  The professional athletic trainers at ALMH SportsCare will offer a Sportsmetrics camp this summer at the Lincoln Junior High School gymnasium. The camp begins at 8 a.m. on June 11 and meets three times a week for the next six weeks.

The cost is only $50 per student athlete.

The Sportsmetrics training program is scientifically proven to significantly reduce the risk of serious knee ligament injuries in athletes. It also helps athletes increase their lower extremity strength and vertical jump height and decrease their lower extremity muscle imbalances.

Participating athletes will complete a sports injury test, which measures factors relating to their strength, coordination and body alignment. Athletic trainers also analyze the athlete's history of sport participation and injury and conduct a video analysis of jumping and landing techniques that includes a functional hop test, vertical jumps, strength and flexibility.

To learn more or to register, contact ALMH SportsCare at 732-5065.
