Fitness and Sports Training
Children who exercise regularly are more likely to develop lifelong habits
that foster good heart and lung health, strong muscles and bones, sound body
composition and psychological well-being.
At CHKD, we are committed to providing the safest training available for children. We follow established guidelines developed by the American College of Sports Medicine for the training of children, and all of our training guidelines have been approved by our physicians.
For young athletes, a well-rounded strength and conditioning program can improve sports performance and reduce the risk of injuries. This program should include appropriate strength training; flexibility, balance and coordination exercises; and speed agility training. At CHKD, we know that developing strength and force production is a good way to improve a student-athlete’s on-field performance.
For children who are at risk of being overweight, repetitive aerobic exercise can quickly become boring. Adding in appropriate strength training and other types of exercise provides children the variety they need while creating a fun and challenging program. This helps increase a child’s activity level and improves results.
All training sessions are 45 minutes.

ACL-Injury Prevention Program for Female Athletes
Research has shown that the incidence of anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries in female athletes can be reduced by as much as 72-80 percent with proper training.
Our ACL-injury prevention classes for female athletes are based on researched methods of preventing ACL injuries and consist of strengthening techniques, core stabilization exercises, plyometrics (jump training), stretching, balance and coordination training. The class will also focus on proper jumping, landing and cutting techniques. The instructor is a physical therapist and athletic trainer and will perform a pre- and post-training assessment to determine improvements the athletes have made throughout the program. At the end of six weeks, the athletes will have a better chance of preventing an ACL injury. The first six participants to send in payment will be accepted into the program. Cost is $150 per participant. Click here for registration forms, class dates, times and location.
