$33 billion is spent each year on youth sports injuries and over 20 million days of school are lost. With over 700, 000 youth lacrosse players currently playing on organized teams in the U.S., lacrosse attributes for a large portion of those injuries. Ankle sprains, ACL tears and concussions are all common injuries in lacrosse. According to the CDC, more than half of those injuries are preventable.
The At Peak Sports app delivers video-guided workouts that are designed by medical professionals to prevent lacrosse injuries. A 20 minute workout twice per week is all it takes to reduce the chance of sports injuries by up to 50%!
A child as young as eight years old has an opportunity to build a physical foundation for their future by completing simple, fun and rewarding workouts within the At Peak app.

Here is an excerpt from a recent interview At Peak Sports conducted with Kyle:
At Peak Sports: How important was staying healthy as a youth athlete toward your eventual success as a college and pro-lacrosse player?
Kyle Harrison: So important. I think health, as an athlete at any level, is probably the most important thing. I’ve been fortunate that I didn’t get hurt during any part of my youth career and any part of my college career. My first injury was actually a couple of years ago when I tore my quad — so staying healthy, again, in any sport, at any level, is the most important thing.
