A while back I consulted with the Foundation for Goalie Research and Education on their Hockey Hip Injury Prevention Project.
FGRE is an organization that I was introduced to by Molly Schaus, long-time member of USA Hockey’s Women’s National Team. The goal for this particular project was to help create a simple, equipment-free warm-up that goalies could perform on a regular basis to help minimize their risk of future hip injury. While this is designed with the goalie in mind, these exercises would also benefit players at all positions.
Molly did a great job with this, so I wanted to share it with you. Please pass this along to other players and coaches, as these types of exercises can make a big impact on your long-term health and durability.
To your success,
