During the third camp of 2016 for the U-15 Girls’ National Team (GNT) in Portland, Oregon, I had the opportunity of working with the same coaches I worked with last spring in Carson, California.

Injury Prevention Program: OPRF

Posted on by Dave Heidloff

I’ve written before about injury prevention for ankle sprains and knee injuries and I want to show just how effective a basic injury prevention program can be.
