Injury Prevention Exercise Initiative

The Greenville County Schools, in cooperation with the Greenville Hospital System, Steadman Hawkins Clinic of the Carolinas, ProAxis Therapy, and Acceleration Sports Institute, have instituted a series of exercises that are designed to compensate for weaknesses of specific areas in flexibility, balance and core strength—where such weaknesses have been proven to lead to higher incidences of injury in athletes. The exercises have been designed by the orthopedic doctors, physical therapists, and exercise specialists in the above organizations and in conjunction with the Sports Sciences Department at the University of North Carolina. The expectation is that all athletic coaches and teams in the Greenville County Schools incorporate these exercises in their daily warm-up routines before practices and games. We strongly encourage all athletes to make these exercises a part of their regular routine before any physical activity. The link above will allow you to see an introductory video and a demonstration of each of the exercises that are integral to this injury prevention program. Injury Prevention Exercise Initiative
