A Team Approach to Reducing ACL Injuries
Coaches, parents and young athletes are invited to join us at Stamford YMCA to learn how to reduce the risk of ACL injury for young athletes. Educators from the world-renowned Hospital for Special Surgery (HSS), in partnership with the Stamford YMCA (The Y) will present a free workshop on Wednesday, May 24 titled, Keeping Young Athletes in the Game: A Team Approach to Reducing ACL Injuries. This critically important workshop for student athletes from ages 10 to 18, their parents and coaches is being presented for the first time in Connecticut. It focuses on training to reduce the risk of debilitating injuries to the vulnerable anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), one of the most common sports injuries. Former UConn basketball great Craig Austrie is the keynote speaker. Parking is available at the Bell Street Parking Garage.
