[May 21, 2008]  The professional athletic trainers at ALMH SportsCare will offer a SportsMetrics camp this summer to help local athletes strengthen their performance and prevent injuries.

The camp is open to female and male athletes 12 years of age and older. The hour-long sessions begin at 9 a.m. on June 9 and meet three times a week for the next six weeks. All sessions will be in the Lincoln Junior High gymnasium.

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, including a functional hop test, vertical jumps, strength and flexibility.

The cost is only $50 per student athlete. Space is limited to the first 20 athletes.

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