The primary purpose of this program is injury prevention but with these core workouts, our goal is to be as strong as possible in stabilizing powerful movements. A weak core can be a major limiting factor when it comes to explosive movements like a vertical jump. This program will help you build the explosiveness you need to win in the air and in short sprints to the ball. It will also help you develop confidence and aggressiveness in situations where contact is involved with another player, or the ground.

There are many risk factors involved with head trauma, but Neck Strength is the only risk factor that can be modified. Concussed athletes had a smaller neck circumference and less overall strength. In untrained youth, the odds of a concussion dropped 5% for every pound of neck strength. So while we may never be able to fully prevent a concussion, we can develop the muscles around the neck to reduce the risk.
