Did you know that ACL injuries are common in almost all sports? Did you know that female athletes seem to be at higher risk for ACL injury? Don’t you want to know how to prevent an ACL injury?

This workshop will help you to understand and minimize the risks for ACL injury, and introduce you to an innovative warm-up program that will help reduce your risk of injury.

Please wear comfortable clothing and sneakers to fully participate in workshop activities.

We hope to see you there!
