Sports-Specific Programs for Soccer, Basketball, Volleyball, and Tennis

Chapter

Abstract

This chapter describes several sports-specific programs in detail that implemented the components of Sportsmetrics considered essential for knee ligament injury prevention and included other exercises and drills designed to improve dynamic balance, agility, speed, strength, and aerobic conditioning. The programs were developed to improve athlete, coach, and parental interest in ACL intervention training and athlete compliance with the exercise program. The agility, reaction, acceleration, speed, and endurance exercises and drills are illustrated and described in detail for soccer, basketball, volleyball, and tennis. The results of the programs’ effectiveness on improving neuromuscular indices and athletic performance indicators are provided.
