The OPTI Comeback Club SoccerFIT Program is geared towards current and former OPTI patients who still require or desire more medically based supervision and direction while working on their soccer-specific fitness. This program is geared towards maximizing your post-injury potential, preparing you for soccer training and games!
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, scientific research on the effectiveness of neuromuscular and proprioceptive training programs on decreasing injury or re-injury rates. At the end of the session, there are small sided pick-up games followed by exercises to assist with reducing the risk for injuries by focusing on your loading/unloading mechanics while fatigued. This program is led by a physical therapist and an athletic trainer who are both former collegiate soccer players and have had to overcome several severe injuries (ACL tears and ankle surgery) so they know what it takes to be CONFIDENT and READY for soccer training and games.
