Firstly, we want to say thank you to all those who attended.

We are very excited to have initiated our Integrated Athletic Development yesterday which took place at the Scotiabank Pond (57 Carl Hall road).

With it being our athletes first day with FITS Toronto, they all went through an evaluation process. It was helpful for our on-ice process to see the hip reports, and make the necessary changes to the corrections during the lesson.  

There are 3 sections that the assessment is divided into. A movement screen (section 1), a Hip Grind & Range of Motion assessment (section 2), and the previous history of the athlete (section 3). This fits into The Law of Signs, Symptoms, and Damage.  

A sign is a common movement problem that is known to increase injury risk. For example, a lack of control at the hip causes the knee to cave inwards in the single leg squat. This repeated motion will cause a symptom; something an athlete feels and can progress to damage. This is the purpose of the Hip Grind and Range of Motion assessment. If there is presence of a grind or pinch in the hip, this can lead to further damage, which in this case is low back pain, a tissue strain, or hip pain.   

The PowerSkating Academy is a one-of-a-kind power skating school in the Toronto and Greater Toronto Area. Thank you for reading this Blog about our first day with FITS Toronto
