Sportsmetrics
Program Objectives
Sportsmetrics™ ACL Injury Prevention Program is a training regimen scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in women athletes. Adolescent girls who participate in pivoting and jumping sports have a 4 to 8 times greater rate of ACL injuries compared to boys.
This program addresses the neuromuscular component of the body through a variety of training methods, where participants learn how to recognize unsafe knee positions and how to improve muscle control of knee motions.
Program Details
Instructors lead participants through a series of progressively challenging strength exercises, plyometrics, and agility drills. The training program includes jump training, deceleration and landing mechanics; lower-extremity strength training with emphasis on developing hamstring and hip strength, improving balance and agility; running mechanics; and core strengthening.
High-speed video is used to evaluate and measure the progress of jumping and landing techniques, running form, and change of direction techniques. Completing the Sportsmetrics™ training program can reduce ACL injuries by 80 percent.
Scientific & Credible
The first ACL Injury Prevention Program that is scientifically proven, was created by a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, under the direction of Dr. Frank Noyes. Sportsmetrics™ is the foundation upon which sports-specific skills are built.
Sportsmetrics™ is the first ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes. With Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or ACL, injury rates that are 2-10 times higher in female athletes than in male athletes, it is time to TAKE ACTION and get involved with Sportsmetrics™--the training program for injury prevention AND performance enhancement.
Sportsmetrics is Vital
Sportsmetrics™ is not just another plyometric training program. Jumping drills are used to teach the athlete to preposition the entire body safely when accelerating (jumping) or decelerating (landing). The selection and progression of these exercises are designed for neuromuscular retraining proceeding from simple jumping drills (to instill correct form) to multi-directional, single-foot hops and plyometrics with an emphasis on quick turnover (to add sport-like movements).
Performing maneuvers with sound mechanics decreases the likelihood of an injury, and it is also essential to maximizing sport performance. A solid foundation of strength, coordination and overall physical conditioning is required for athletes to attain their highest potential in their sport-specific skills. Train with Sportsmetrics™ to reduce your risk of injury AND enhance competitive athletic performance.
