About

What we do: FUNfitness is designed to assess and improve flexibility, functional strength and balance. Athletes rotate through assessment stations and are given a consultation with a physical therapist who designs an exercise program for home use. The program is marked in the Athlete Scorecard Booklet so coaches and family members can assist with the home program and improve athletes’ performance.

Who we need:

Day of Screeners

Physical Therapists and Physical Therapist Students, trained on-site to provide all-day screening exams.

Area Clinical Directors

* Attend a two-day train-the-trainer event

* Supervise the venue

* Oversee 1-2 events annually
