Sportsmetrics sessions to be offered at Penn State Hershey

Penn State Hershey University Fitness Center will offer an injury prevention and sports performance program for young athletes.

Sportsmetrics is a scientifically proven program that improves performance for sports like soccer, basketball and volleyball, while reducing the risk for serious knee injuries, such as anterior cruciate ligament tears, that are associated with sports participation.

Led by trainers certified in Sportsmetrics, the six-week program includes a biomechanical evaluation, training three times a week (2 to 3:30 p.m. Sundays, 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays and 6:30 to 8 pm. Thursdays) and a final biomechanical evaluation at the end of the sessions. Class size is small to increase individualized attention.

The fall session begins on Thursday, Jan. 9. The cost for the program is $250 if paid in advance and $270 if paid the first day of the program.
