Strength and agility exercises for kids

Strength and agility exercises for kids

Most team sports involve movements for a fixed length of time that seldom occur in a straight line. Agility and strength training improves a child’s ability to change direction, brake suddenly, and perform sport specific skills with more speed and dexterity.

Our Camp Little Victors team stopped by Sport Club, an 6-week program offered by our pediatric physical therapy program, to learn some strength and agility exercises that your kids can do at home!

Camp Little Victors is a virtual summer camp created by C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital. To learn more about Camp Little Victors, visit http://www.mottchildren.org/camp
