Athletic performance training sessions offered this summer


Many injuries in young athletes are due to overuse during practice and games, or the result of improper movement mechanics and muscle imbalances. Injury rates can be decreased through improving dangerous movement patterns, such as landing and cutting techniques.

If you have a son or daughter in sports and want to reduce the chance of injury, HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals are offering sessions on how to improve athletic performance and agility. These sessions are geared toward athletes in middle school, high school and college.

Two eight-week sessions are being offered:
  • On Wednesdays, June 7 to August 2, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Hospital (900 W. Clairemont Ave.)
  • On Thursdays, June 8 to August 3, 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Hospital (900 W. Clairemont Ave.)

Athletes will receive personalized instruction for safe movement and increased performance allowing them to gain strength and confidence to move forward in their sport. The sessions will be led by a physical therapist skilled in injury prevention, post-injury rehabilitation and personal training.

The cost is $50 per person and includes a t-shirt, two video analyses of dynamic movement, a functional movement screen and a personalized plan. To register, call (715) 717-4338.
