Injury Prevention (Fifa 11+)
Soccer is one of the most popular sports in the USA and of course the world. The game of soccer provides an enjoyable form of exercise and helps players to develop balance, agility, coordination, and a sense of teamwork. Soccer coaches, players and patents must be aware of the risks for injury. Injury prevention, early detection, and treatment can keep kids and adults involved in and having fun playing soccer for a long time.
Massachusetts Youth Soccer utilizes the Fifa 11+ for all ODP sessions and any other U12-U18 sessions coached by our full time staff, we strongly recommend that all youth soccer organizations adopt the Fifa 11+ as a warm-up routine prior to practices and games.
