Bishop Lynch and Cypress ECG are interested in conducting a second day of ECG screenings. Please notify Coach Hopper if you are interested in having your son or daughter tested. This date will be in August or September, TBD. We need to know how many people would be interested that couldn’t make it to this weekend’s screening.
Functional Pre-Participation Evaluation Research Study
We will be participating in the FPPE study out of Ohio State University again this school year. This research study is conducted in boys and girls basketball, boys and girls soccer, and football. We will conduct these screenings in the month of July and into the beginning of the school year. The FPPE is a simple movement screening that researchers are using to evaluate potential biomechanical flaws in athletes’ movement that may precipitate injury. This screening will take 15-20 minutes per athlete. We want to encourage all of our athletes in these sports to participate. More details will come out very soon. Learn more about the FPPE Project at Ohio State University at the following link: http://medicine.osu.edu/hrs/at/research/moves/pages/fppe-project.aspx
