The Cool Down
While most programs around the country have a defined warm-up before they begin practice, many often do not fully utilize the cool down. Coach Papalio explains the importance of the cool down as well as providing detailed explanations and demonstrations of post-practice and post-game cool down routines. These routines use both static stretches and yoga to increase flexibility and prevent injuries in your athletes.
Stretching after a practice will improve your players’ flexibility. More flexible athletes tend to be stronger, faster, and more productive on the court. Instituting a post-practice or post-game cool down routine also serves as a preventative measure in guarding against injury.
