  5. Understand how Coach Kurtz groups each athlete according to how they perform on these assessments
  6. Identify how these protocols have helped to create buy-in from Coach Kurtz’ athletes, students, parents of the student-athletes, coaches and administration.

Extremely valuable

These assessments can be extremely valuable in attempting to identify possible injury areas and then planning to prevent them from occurring.

Awesome tool

These assessments are great ways implement an injury prevention focus into your program while also incorporating a significant amount of differentiation which aids into the educational frame work a High School Strength coach lives in.
