11+ Kids Injury Prevention Program Resource
Do you work with young soccer players?
Do you know that there is a youth-specific injury prevention program called the "11+ Kids" thats different to the traditional 11+?
Did you also know its incredibly effective in decreasing injuries, improving performance measures and being cost effective?
You do now.. 11+ Kids reduced the risk of all injuries in young soccer players (7-13yr olds) by 50% but importantly reduced the risk of severe injuries by 74%, and all lower limb injuries by 55% when compared to a group that did their "usual" warm-up (whatever that may be) (Rossler et al, 2018).
Furthermore, in just 4 weeks the 11+kids was shown to improve performance outcome measures of balance, agility and vertical/horizontal jumps (Pomares-Noguera et al, 2018). And if you need anymore reasons to make sure that this simple & effective 15min warm up is added to the start of every training session and game, the 11+ kids reduced healthcare costs by 51% (Rossler et al, 2018).
