The main goal of athletics is to foster physical activity, skill development, competitiveness and a lifelong love of sport and fitness. In order to keep athletes healthy, there are several exercises that have been shown to decrease the chances of developing an injury. These include single leg balancing, squat and landing form, deceleration and scapular stability. To make an effective on field program, these exercises can be incorporated into a warm up that progress in difficulty over time as the athletes gain mastery of the movement. When athletes are able to perform 10-20 repetitions with good form they can move on to the next step. Once athletes have developed the strength, coordination and control of each level, then the exercises can become a maintenance routine that they perform to maintain their strength and stability.
