The vast majority of coaches run drills to improve a child’s athletic ability, but for those few coaches that don’t, the results can be devastating. Don’t let the same senseless injuries as this one happen to your child on the field. Communicate with your child and communicate with their coaches. It could save your child’s season, but more importantly their life.”
