Thank you to Dr. Cindy Durakis and Director of Coaching for organizing ASA’s first Performance Enhancement/Injury Prevention Clinic. Many interested parents, players and coaches attended the session. In her presentation, Dr. Durakis highlighted The Santa Monica ACL Prevention Project which developed a training session as a replacement for a team’s traditional warm up. The Prevent injury, Enhance Performance (PEP) Program, developed by a team of physicians, physical therapists, athletic trainers and coaches, is designed to integrate an injury prevention program into a team’s regular training routine.
