November 15-16 Course

Our November 15th – 16th course was full of surprises that kept us on our toes, including a power outage and a very long and COLD evacuation due to a false fire alarm.  I guess there is a first time for everything and two of ours fell on the same day!  Nevertheless, our course participants showed great resilience and were ready to tackle the course with enthusiasm.  We promise, we are looking for a battery-powered projector!  It ended up being a great weekend and we would like to  welcome and say thank you to the newest editions to the Sportsmetrics community:

October 4-5 Certification Group

On October 4th and 5th, we held a smaller group certification course for 11 healthcare professionals throughout the country. Physical therapists and athletic trainers came from Georgia, Ohio, Louisiana, Michigan, New York and Texas to learn how to prevent ACL injuries in their communities.  Unfortunately, our course attendees missed the beautiful fall weather we were having here in Cincinnati and instead were welcomed with rain and falling temperatures.  I guess it was a good weekend to stay instead and soak up some knowledge.  Our smaller groups really give us a chance to understand our individual certified sites’ needs and interests in the program and makes it easier to set up a marketing and roll-out strategy for each site.  We enjoyed the weekend and welcome the newest editions to the Sportsmetrics community:
