    A Night of Sports Injury Prevention

    01/08/2015, 3:45pm PST
    By Staff

    The Irvine Baseball Club is excited to announce a night of sports health care and injury prevention for our families. 

    As we start the spring season, we wanted to offer an opportunity for the families to hear three doctors present exclusively to our organization. I have included their bios below. They will talk about youth concussions, arm care, injury prevention and general health for our young ball players.

    We have reserved the community center at Deerfield Park on Thursday, January 15th. The presentations will take place from 6:30 to 7:30. We may have some time for questions after.

    I would encourage you to bring your son and at least one of the parents. These doctors really help us keep in perspective EXACTLY what you, as parents, and our coaches need to think about as they help your sons prepare for high school and beyond. 

    This is another great value that our organization is able deliver our families. I don't think you will want to miss it.  

    It is important for the kids to hear not only how important it is to stay in shape and take care of their bodies but what they can do to to best prevent injury.
