A few weeks ago I was having a talk with a few fellow coaches and parents and came to this realization: young female athletes do not get the same training opportunities as their male counterparts. This may not sound surprising to most of you reading this but when considering the dangers for female athletes, it should be very concerning.
In order to correct this, these young athletes need opportunities to learn and train how to move their bodies in a safe and efficient manner. I believe that most lower body injuries can be prevented. We cannot eliminate them completely but we can try like heck to reduce the rate of injury!
In less than three weeks, Brickhouse Strength Performance Camps will be offering a speed camp designed specifically for the female athlete aged 7-14. This camp will take place at Saucon Valley High School and will begin on July 17th and end on July 20th. Each session will begin at 9 am and end at 11 am. Over the course of these four days, athletes will be coached on a variety of skills with a focus being placed on: leg & core strength; neuromuscular training; and landing mechanics. They will also be instructed on speed technique, agility training, and conditioning to get them prepared for the upcoming season.
Registration has been open for a few weeks now and we have received incredible support and feedback for those that reached out. If you are one of those who have registered, thank you!
If you have not registered but feel this would be a great camp for your daughter, the clock is ticking and time is running out!
