Some time ago I saw info about exercises that should lessen the chance of an acl tear. My 12 year old is trying so hard to make the girls 7th grade team at school this fall. I do not know where I saw the info and wondered if any of you have the info or the web site url. I want to give the info to the kids' coaches. Thanks if anyone can help.

If you Google ACL strengthening excercises you can find several sites with info. Here is one. I remember reading the report several years ago. I think the regime was developed at Stanford(?). I'm not sure how successful the excercises are in preventing injury. I seem to remember Geno talking about it on one of his shows. IIRC he said that the team was doing the excercises but they were having just as many ACL injuries.

Agreed. As far as I know, there has not been anything shown or proven to reduce ACL injuries.
