MBVFC is committed to player well-being and so were delighted when Westfield Matildas Head Physiotherapist, David Battersby FACP, agreed to visit MBVFC on Saturday, 19 January, to run a session for coaches on how to effectively deliver the FIFA11+ warm up program to players. MBVFC extended the opportunity to all coaches from neighbouring clubs so that more players in the region could benefit. Thirty coaches, representing eight clubs across the FFNC region attended, listening intently and watching the demonstrations.
MBVFC is incredibly grateful to David for his generosity in travelling to Mullum and delivering the program.
The FIFA11+ warm up program has been proven to significantly reduce major injuries, particularly in female players between the ages of 13-18 who have a high risk of knee and ACL injury (up to a 50% reduction in injuries) - but the program is extremely beneficial to both males and females. More details on the program and its remarkable success in injury prevention can be found at: https://www.footballmedicineassociation.com.au/fifa11plus.
