The Injury Prevention program is a 6-week (2x a week) course designed to prepare players for their Spring season during the off season. It is focused on educating players on how to adequately prepare themselves before games and practices during their season. Furthermore, the program will condition & train its participants with age appropriate activities to reduce the chances of sustaining an injury during the demanding Spring season.
The program is delivered by qualified Billings Clinic Physical Therapists & follows the FIFA 11+ program designed by the FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence. The program is soccer specific and will address desired movement mechanics, flexibility, muscle activation and preventative habits.
Work with the physical therapist will be followed by technical training from Billings United Senior Coaching staff to ensure the players are maintaining and improving their touch & play during the winter leading into the Spring Season.
