Press Release (ePRNews.com) - ORANGE COUNTY, Calif. - Mar 17, 2017 - The YMCA has always emphasized not just the playing of sports, but the research associated with sports and physical performance. The YMCA of Orange County promotes research based athletic development through their new Performance Strength and Conditioning program. The program aims to maximize the potential of local athletes through the use of current
research in the fields of strength and conditioning, biomechanics, exercise physiology, and sport psychology. The athletic training program is facilitated by certified strength and conditioning specialists (CSCS) with higher education degrees in kinesiology.
Participation in a resistance training program not only serves to enhance athletic performance; but, also helps in decreasing risk of injury. This is especially important considering sports injuries are the leading type of injury in adolescents, accounting for 30-40% of all unintentional injuries. YMCA Performance Strength and Conditioning will enable athletes to stay strong on the field of play and take their game to the next level.
The YMCA has a rich history of promoting and enhancing athleticism within the community. The popular sports of basketball and volleyball, as well as the rising sport of futsal, were invented by the YMCA. In 1929, the World Alliance of YMCAs was awarded the Olympic Cup by the International Olympic Committee for its services to sports.
