Seminar to Help High School Athletes Optimize Performance in Sports
January 21, 2005
Athletic trainers and certified strength and conditioning specialists will be on hand to help high school athletes understand the best ways to integrate strength and conditioning training into their sports schedules. “An Off-Season Training/Conditioning Discussion” will be held at 6 p.m. Monday, Feb. 7, at the new Greece location of University Sports Medicine.
According to Jarett Rhoads, ATC, CSCS, today’s high school athletes train and play at such rigorous levels, that they need to prepare their bodies before the season starts, and ramp down after the season.
“Regardless if you are a one, two, or three season athlete, it's important to prime your body before, during and after the season so that you not only play at your best level, but that your decrease your chances of injury,” Rhoads said.
The program will broadly discuss the phases of an athlete’s season, and then focus on the strengthening and conditioning components of an off-season program, including maintaining flexibility, aerobic levels, and overall muscle strength.
To register for the free program, athletes can call 225-6296. University Sports Medicine in Greece is located at 120 Erie Canal Drive in Canal Park.
