    Preventing Noncontact ACL Injuries also has an online course component that provides interactive case studies that allow you to practice identifying dysfunctional movement patterns and developing comprehensive training programs for two virtual athletes. The course thoroughly covers the numerous components that contribute to an effective program, including technique training (such as how to land from jumping or how to cut correctly), strengthening, plyometrics, and balance and agility training. Through this hands-on approach, you will learn how to draw on scientific evidence, athlete assessments, and your own clinical expertise to develop training programs for individual athletes.
