Station 1 – Dynamic warm-up for prevention.  This is not stagnant stretching; these are warm-up exercises for highly active athletes (male and female) and are used before activity to prevent injuries.  Handouts will be available after demonstration and practical application.
Station 2 – Jump-landing training.  This will show the proper technique for jumping not only for prevention of injury but this will also improve jump performance.  Techniques will allow the athlete to improve jumps while preventing risk of injury.
Station 3    Video Evaluation – Slow Motion Biomechanical Video analysis of the athlete.  Therapist will be able to pinpoint and correct proper landing technique.  Each athlete will be individually videoed and given personal corrections!  This is a $100-plus dollar value but is free with the clinic!
