SportsMetrics is the first ACL Injury Prevention Program that is scientifically proven.  It was created by a team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, under the direction of Dr. Frank Noyes. Sportsmetrics™ is the foundation upon which sports-specific skills are built.  Sportsmetrics™ is the first ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to decrease serious knee ligament injuries in female athletes. With Anterior Cruciate Ligament, or ACL, injury rates that are 2-10 times higher in female athletes than in male athletes.  Sportsmetrics™ is not just another plyometric training program.  Jumping drills are used to teach the athlete to preposition the entire body safely when accelerating (jumping) or decelerating (landing).  The selection and progression of these exercises are designed for neuromuscular retraining proceeding from simple jumping drills (to instill correct form) to multi-directional, single-foot hops and plyometrics with an emphasis on quick turnover (to add sport-like movements).  Performing maneuvers with sound mechanics decreases the likelihood of an injury, and it is also essential to maximizing sport performance. A solid foundation of strength, coordination and overall physical conditioning is required for athletes to attain their highest potential in their sport-specific skills.  Train with Sportsmetrics™ to reduce your risk of injury AND enhance competitive athletic performance.
