Sports are a fun and healthy way to stay active, but staying safe while playing is very important. Whether you’re a serious competitive athlete or are just playing sports for fun, learning how to play without pain can save you from long-lasting injuries and long recoveries.
Especially for young patients whose bones are still growing, preventing injuries can go a long way in avoiding painful accidents, overuse injuries and surgery.
Mass Youth Soccer has adopted the FIFA 11+ program into all of their sessions. Stoughton Youth Soccer recommends each coach educate themselves on the FIFA 11+ program and use as a warmup routine for all teams with players in grades 5 and above.
