Sportsmetrics™ is the first ACL injury prevention program scientifically proven to help young athletes avoid non-contact ACL injuries and improve performance. A team of athletic trainers, physical therapists and researchers, under the direction of world-renown orthopaedic surgeon Dr. Frank Noyes, manages and certifies the Sportsmetrics™ programs. The Sportsmetrics™ program employs a number of drills to encourage proper form for jumping and landing during athletic participation. Jumping drills are used to teach the athlete to preposition the entire body safely when accelerating (jumping) or decelerating (landing). The selection and progression of these exercises are designed for neuromuscular retraining proceeding from simple jumping drills (to instill correct form) to multi-directional, single-foot hops and plyometrics with an emphasis on quick turnover. The Sportsmetrics program can be integrated into the post-injury return to play process.
