ACL Stretches
The Anterior Cruciate Ligament is one of a pair of ligaments in the knee and tearing them is one of the most common knee injury that happens in ANY sport, but especially Soccer and Football where you plant your foot and pivot with your knee.  The ACL is crucial for stabilizing the knee when turning or planting the leg.   An ACL injury can not alwas be prevented but your chances of one can be lessened if you stretch well before and after practices and games.    There is a new Handout (found in the Handouts section) from, Brett Siebenkittel, lead physical therapist at Allgehany Regional in Low Moor of warm-up and cool down exercises that can easily be done to help prevent ACL injury.

How to read the calendar.
12/19/2014:  Therea re no tabes currently on the calendar.  Tabs will be resurrected once there is a need for them.

 Hey there all!  I know, I know, we all know how to read a calendar but, as the Fall soccer season is about to be upon us (for some of you, it already is!) and the calendar is getting jammed up pretty quickly.  So, for those that are new to the site or just would like a refresher course, I am typing this up.     For the calendar, I have it broken down into subcategories.  At the bottom of the calendar, you can select which categories you wish to see and it will show you only those.  So, if Little Billy is on a U6 team and you need to see his schedule, you go to the calendar, scroll to the bottom and first, deselect the "All events Categories" then, find where it says "U6 Games" and select that, then press the "Redisplay Events" button.  VIOLA!  You have all the U6 Games and ONLY the U6 games on the calendar.  Unless stated, all the games are played at Jackson River Sports Complex so that is NOT listed on the calendar (takes up too much room) but, to find out what field you are going to be playing on, just go up to the appropriate game and select it and it will show you the field (as well as directions to the JRSC in case you want to invite anyone from out of town.) .  And, that is it.  Nice and simple and the subcategories keep the calendar a little bit cleaner.  Thank you!
