PREMIER PERFORMANCE AND INJURY PREVENTION
Our Utah and Colorado Basketball Club is dedicated to providing our players with the best athletic and injury prevention training available to youth athletes. Developed in conjunction with Physio Pro, the leading physical therapy and sports performance professionals in Colorado, our Premier Performance Program provides our athletes with speed, quickness and agility training combined with an emphasis on prevention of knee injuries at our weekly skill development sessions.
Points of Emphasis Include:
- ACL and Knee Injury Prevention
- Speed and Lateral quickness
- Improving Strength
- Body Alignment
In addition to our weekly sessions run by Premier Directors, Physio Pro can also provide Biometric Screening and individually tailored sessions at their convenient Colorado location. Biometric screening allows the clinician to identify problem areas in flexibility, strength and neuromuscular control which increase the. susceptibility to injury. After this screening athletes are given a specifically tailored program targeting their deficiencies. Individual sessions allow them to retest the deficient areas, monitor progress and adjust programs accordingly.
*Team Sessions are also available
