STRETCH IT OUT!
KIDS STRETCHING is just as important as competing. You have to get those "little muscles" warmed up before they rock & roll on the field of any sport. Stretching helps prevent injuries, reduces recovery time and keeps your kids flexible!
Young athletes at any level, just like adults, should start with a 10 minute dynamic warm-up ("moving" stretches) before practice/competition and after a cool down of static stretching should be done. Check out this week's video featuring SDSC's U10 and U11 Champion mid-fielder "The Marz". She will show you how it's done!
Be Fit and Run Happy!
