When I first started working with the youth, I noticed that a lot of the players, despite of their young age suffered from various injuries. However after implementing a proper dynamic warm up and cool down most of the injuries subsided. Generally speaking, it is not normal for young bodies to suffer from for example knee, or back pain. Out of my experience most of the players are in pain because of severe muscle tightness and muscle weakness, as well as lack of proper warm up and cool down after the activity.
Our dear friend form Fyzical Rockledge, Kim Gallaher prepared for you guys an awesome mobility routine every player should be doing daily.
My children have been training with Coach P. for approximately 3 months and they have significantly improved. Coach P. is very attentive – always focused on the kids, correcting their form and challenges them during every session. Within 3 months, my children have improved significantly where they are now able to compete at an AAU level.
