With yesterday being International Women’s Day, what better time to announce Sheddon Physiotherapy and Sports Clinics sponsorship of a new soccer academy led by female coaches inspiring young female athletes – Future Girls Soccer. Future Girls Soccer is the first and only ALL GIRLS soccer academy in Ontario. Their all-female coaching staff has decades of coaching and playing experience in the NCAA and at the international level. They have programs for girls aged 4-14 years old across all skill levels, including development house leagues, goalie training, skills development, competitive programs and summer camps. Their mission is to develop all their players into strong young ladies, impressive soccer players and healthy athletes. For more information check out their website here.
Sheddon is excited to be working with Future Girls Soccer and assisting with education, injury prevention, sport specific rehabilitation and performance both on and off the field. Sheddon’s Athletic Therapist Anson Ly recently gave a presentation with the U12 girls. He discussed injury prevention and basic nutrition guidance for young athletes, as well as demonstrating the “PAIRS Program,” a Prevention Program to Assist with Injury Reduction in Sport.
