Knee Injury Prevention Program (KIPP) for Coaches - check it out!

Updated: Feb 12, 2019

With funding from the Kohl's Cares, the Lurie Children's Institute for Sports Medicine is pleased to offer this free online version of the Knee Injury Prevention Program (KIPP) for Coaches, a tool to help coaches reduce the risk of knee injuries in their female adolescent athletes. KIPP for Coaches is a 15-minute neuromuscular warm-up routine of strengthening exercises, plyometrics, balance training, agility drills, and active stretching. KIPP for Coaches was launched in 2006 in more than 50 Chicago public high schools. Funded by Children's Memorial Research Center and Office of Child Advocacy, this award-winning research showed that girls' basketball and soccer teams using the KIPP for Coaches warm-up had a statistically significant reduction in knee injuries compared to teams using a traditional warm-up.
