Fusion Volleyball 15U Girls Coach Thanks SportsCan after their Best Finish at Provincials & Nationals.
"I'd like to thank SportsCan on behalf of the 15U Girls Red Fusion team for the time you spent with our team this season.
We placed tied for 9 at Provincials, up from a rank of 26th.
We placed tied for 5th at East Nationals, up from a rank of 16th.
Your technical expertise has played a part in our success and wanted to thank you for your commitment to our Girls."
What is FMS?
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a ranking and grading system that assesses movement patterns that are key to normal function movements.
The FMS is based on 7 key functional movement patterns (squat, hurdle step, lunge, shoulder mobility, leg raise, push-up and rotational stability).
By analysing these movement patterns, the trainer is able to identify functional limitations and asymmetries in the athlete. These are issues that can reduce the effects of physical training and sport skill development, but most importantly they can distort body awareness that can lead the athlete to overuse injuries and long term pain.

Our Coaches Can Help Make Your Athletic Goals Reality!
Nutrition, Conditioning, Mental Preparation, & Video Analysis
With the ever increasing requirements of the competitive athlete to fully develop their potential, the volunteer coach cannot effectively deliver all necessary technical and tactical elements in addition to educating their athletes in the area of Nutrition, Conditioning, and Mental Training.
Our Mental Skills Coaches, Sports Dieticians, Athletic Conditioning Coaches and Video support Coaches will work with your current coaches to develop team ancillary training that can be delivered before, during or after practices. This training can range in length from 30-minutes to 90-minutes and will be customized to meet each teams requirements.
The Ancillary Coaches will work with coaches to determine the greatest needs of their team and develop a strategy to address the needs of athletes that fit within the seasonal plan.
