OPTI’s SoccerFIT Medically Based Soccer-Specific Conditioning Program
The OPTI Comeback Club SoccerFIT Program is geared towards former OPTI patients who are training for college soccer but is also open to high school aged athletes (if space allows) who want to have more medically based supervision and direction while working on their soccer-specific fitness!
The group sessions are 2 days a week and incorporate soccer specific agility, speed, and power with coaching and education on proper loading mechanics to reduce the risk for injury. The sessions are based off of the most up to date research on the positive effects of neuromuscular and propriceptive training programs on injury rates. At the end of the session, we will be having small sided pick-up games followed by exercises to assist with reducing the risk for injuries by focusing on the athlete’s loading/unloading mechanics while fatigued. This program is run by Katie Cordery, PT and Brent Cordery, PT who will be developing the sessions based off of summer workouts given to you by your respective Colleges and Universities in order to prepare you for pre-season. Katie is a former collegiate soccer player and has had to overcome several severe injuries so she knows what it takes to be READY for college soccer both physically and mentally!
