Midtown Athletic Club in Oak Park will host an injury prevention clinic for youth baseball and softball players February 22.
From 1-2:30 p.m., players ages 10-18 and their parents and coaches are invited to join Midtown and Athletico Physical Therapy for a 90-minute presentation. Athletico physical therapist Kevin Hendrix and Midtown Fitness Director Brian Lyons hope to teach young athletes how to stay injury-free and perform their best throughout the upcoming season.
The interactive event will discuss common injuries for youth baseball and softball players and demonstrate rehabilitation strategies to get back on the field safely. Attendees can also learn about Midtown's Sports Performance Training Program, which offers considerations for training the growing athlete. The program works to improve speed, agility, quickness and strength while decreasing risk of injury.
Clinic is complimentary for Midtown members and guests. RSVP by February 20 to Brian Lyons at 708-848-5200 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
