We are excited to announce that the Boston Breaker's Katie Schoepfer will be a guest coach at Slocum High School Prep on Wednesday, June 15. A member of the Boston Breakers since 2011, Schoepfer is a starter and co-captain of the 2016 Breaker's 2016 squad. Schoepfer was a member of the US U-23 National Women's Soccer Team from 2008-2011 and starred at Penn State from 2006-2009 where she was both an All-American and a Scholar All-American. Schoepfer will be available at the end of the session to answer questions and sign autographs.
We have been hard at work, continuing to build and refine the ACL Injury Prevention Program. To that end, we have formed an official partnership with the Micheli Center ( New Link )!! Coaches Slocum and Pickul attended a lecture on site in January on Knee Injuries in Young Adults. Dr. Lyle Micheli was presenting on ACL surgeries over the years and where we are now. After he spoke, many injury prevention exercises were discussed and taught to the group. Coach Slocum attended another Micheli Center training in February with Dr. Dai Sugimoto, Director of Clinical Research, and Corey Dawkins, Injury Prevention Specialist and Athletic Trainer (http://www.themichelicenter.com/about-us/staff/ .
Dr. Sugimoto discussed common mechanisms of injury and prevention research while Dawkins demonstrated many injury prevention exercises. In March, coaches Slocum and Pickul participated in a private 1-to-1 training with Corey Dawkins to review and refine our injury prevention program.
