Registration is open for Trinity Health Sports Medicine FASTER Athletic programs, geared toward athletes entering grades 5-12.
FASTER is an acronym for Flexibility, Agility and Strength Together Equal Ready, and features different programs designed to provide athletic gains through sport specific strengthening, balance, core stability and injury prevention.
“Sessions include high intensity exercise periods with brief breaks to improve cardiovascular conditioning and simulate game activity,” said Darren Armstrong, manager of Therapy Services. “The Sports Medicine staff has also identified common sports injuries and incorporates activities into the sessions to lessen repetitive injury risk.”
FASTER programs are offered June 6-July 29 and run one hour, twice a week for eight weeks. Sessions are scheduled for various dates and are targeted toward athletes who participate in Volleyball, Hockey, Cheer and General sports. Locations include MAYSA Sports Arena and Our Redeemer’s, Nedrose, South Prairie and Velva Schools.
The cost for an eight-week session is $125.00 and the registration deadline is May 13.
