Summer Athletic Training
Studies show that female athletes have 4-6 times increased risk for ACL injury compared to males participating at the same level in similar sports. The data show that females jump differently than males.
Memorial Health System’s Sports Medicine Program offers a summer training session for female athletes in grades 7 through 10. The session is designed to help student athletes prevent injury and improve performance by providing training in strengthening, jumping, flexibility, and dynamic warm-up. The primary purpose of the program is to help prevent knee injuries.
The training typically begins in late June and is held at Impact Sports and Fitness, 418 N. Broadway. Registration is due a week before training begins. Interested individuals may contact Memorial Health System Rehabilitation and Sports Medicine at (785) 263-6664.
