VMH Athletic Training Staff Offering Sports Performance CAMP
Studies have shown that nearly 70% of ACL injuries occur without direct contact to the knee such as striking, hitting, bumping, etc. The Vernon Memorial Healthcare Athletic Training staff is excited to once again offer Sports Performance CAMP this summer to help area athletes reduce the chance of injury.
All area athletes in middle school, high school and college will benefit from this program. We will teach and train athletes the correct jumping, landing and cutting techniques to minimize non-contact injuries. CAMP participants not only learn how to reduce their risk of injury, but they also learn how to make their movements more efficient and productive!
The seven-week program is designed to help athletes increase strength, power, endurance and agility through the use of agility ladders, medicine balls, Smarthurdles™, sports cords, battle ropes and plyometric boxes. The program meets twice a week from June - July.
We are excited to offer two CAMP sites. Seneca High School will be hosting CAMP classes every Monday and Wednesday, while Viroqua Middle School will be the site for Tuesdays and Thursdays. All classes run from 9am - 11am.
