I am need of advise for stretching before practice/games. I help coach a 12u team who is gonna be 14u soon. Now our girls are 13 and 12 year olds and we have had a few injuries that have come back from the doctor as injuries to growth plates. Who did those who have gone through this growing time dealt with and prevented these kind of injuries?
Also an specific stretches that we could add into would as well. We are currently doing the basic arm and leg stretches and give the girls plenty of time to stretch before practice. We use to have them circle off and count but have slowly gone away from that. Which Im thinking might be something to go back to.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
