ACL Injury Prevention

Your goal is to get faster, but first you must know how to slow down and stop safely. An effective speed training program trains acceleration AND deceleration together! Balancing these two aspects will increase your speed and reduce your risk of a serious setback. You wouldn’t drive a Ferrari without brakes, right?!

ACL injury prevention, especially for females, is a priority in our athletes’ programs. Absorbing force, whether in jump landing, stopping, or changing directions is the key to staying fast and strong for the long-run.
