Mid-Columbia Medical Center and MCMC Sports Medicine are committed to supporting youth athletics in the Columbia Gorge region. As part of this commitment, we are pleased to announce a new summer program of Sports Performance Training.
This is a free 6 week program working on speed, agility, strength, and injury prevention. This program will be supervised by strength coaches, athletic trainers and physical therapists from MCMC to help improve athletic performance and improve athletic body mechanics as athletes train for their specific sports.
This program will include fun group activities including dynamic warm-up, agility/quickness training, and weight training that research has shown both improves sports performance, and decreases the risk of serious knee injuries (especially ACL tears). This is a free, 2-3 time per week program provided by MCMC Sports Medicine and Water's Edge Physical Therapy.
