COLLEGE HILL, OH (FOX19) – McAuley’s incoming freshmen and returning student athletes have an opportunity to prevent injuries during the upcoming soccer, volleyball and basketball seasons. For several weeks this summer, the young women are coming to campus to participate in Sportsmetrics, arranged by McAuley Trainer Rachael Holt and conducted by Cincinnati SportsMedicine. The focus of the Sportsmetrics program is injury prevention, with some acceleration training as well.
McAuley Athletic Director Caryl Schawe is excited to offer this inaugural, optional program to the athletes. McAuley Varsity Soccer Coach Melissa Frampton is thrilled with the way the program is organized.
She shares, “I appreciate that our (the coaches of volleyball, basketball and soccer) input was asked for and used in designing the Sportsmetrics for McAuley. I really wanted the injury prevention part of the program and the opportunity for the girls to get in shape, and learn proper techniques. I believe anything one
can do to prevent an injury is a good thing.”
Each Sportsmetrics experience is specifically tailored to the athletes’ sports.
