Master the Art of Injury Prevention

70 % of all ACL injuries are non-contact. The statement, "this is just part of the game" is outdated. The risk of injury can be reduced.

We've dove into ACL injury risk reduction research.

We've laid scalable assessments and training solutions.

We’ve created a common language for everyone who should be protecting their athletes.

The result is a 5 online course sections, 13 lessons, and over 2 hours of video lecture and coaching.

Walk away with:

  • Playbook for reducing ACL injury risk in your clientele
  • A turnkey, tried and true strength accessory programming
  • A set of proven assessments to identify and monitor modifiable risk factors
  • Injury risk reduction strategies specific to individual athletes
  • A trained coach’s eye, and a system to teach movement

This is an online course for sports coaches, strength coaches, sports medicine professionals, parents, and anyone that has a stake in an athlete’s performance and long-term athletic career. Athletes get yanked in every direction with well-intentioned stakeholders, all in an effort to increase an athlete’s potential. Many times these paths contradict one another. Or they might over specialize leading to imbalances, or event ignore deficiencies to bias stakeholder expertise.

The Power Athlete Crew puts athletes first in this course and guides stakeholders through modifiable causes of ACL injuries that can be reduced through identification and targeted strength training.

It is paramount that we create a common language around the ACL injury to communicate with athletes and navigate discussions with other stakeholders around injury prevention and athlete training preparation. And that is what this course does.

The curriculum gives you accessory work programming you can bolt-on to any strength program to improve alignment, coordination, hypertrophy, and structural integrity, all targeting ACL injury risk reduction and increasing performance.

Expand your understanding of movement, strength training programming, and how to communicate so you can effectively advocate for injury prevention to be a part of all other stakeholders daily program.

We need your help to change the stigma on injury prevention training.

Help us protect athletes for the duration of their athletic career.
