Sports Medicine Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon and Beach FC Coach
Above I have provided a link to the F marc 11 + injury prevention program. This is a FIFA sponsored program which has been shown to decrease injuries in youth soccer players. I would encourage all the coaches to take a look at it. I don't think it is necessary to follow it to the letter, but incorporating the ideas into a regular routine may well decrease the risk of injuries to our players. If you have any questions about it give me a call or email me.
Also, any team which has an injured player should feel free to call or text my cell for expedited care. I consider soccer players and their families VIPs and try to help them get evaluated and back on the field as soon as possible. If I am at the fields that day I can evaluate an injury at the field or try to get things moving over a weekend.
Have a great season.
