Sports Medicine Performance Programs

Return to practice planning consideration for coaches

Providence Sports Medicine is committed to supporting athletes as sports gradually return from the COVID layoff. Many athletes have not been able to train and condition their bodies for appropriate levels of activity on a consistent basis. Because of this, our Providence Sports Medicine team of specialists want to provide coaches with helpful guidelines when planning activities for athletes returning to sports. Whether athletes have not started their return to sport activities, or if they are several weeks along, our program can help support their transition back to sports while helping reduce the risk of injuries.

Conditioning program

The Providence Sports Medicine Conditioning Program is a six-week exercise and movement plan that is designed to get you ready for sports practice and activities for late summer and fall. The COVID-19 crisis disrupted everyone’s lives. Taking a structured approach to returning to exercise and activity is important to reduce your chances of injury when returning to sports and competition. In addition to providing this program, Providence Sports Medicine Athletic Trainers are available to offer athletes and families guidance and support throughout the summer.
