Craig Liebenson – Summer Training/ Boot Camp for Athletic Development
During my visit to Los Angeles last week I was able to catch up with Craig Liebenson and observe the start of his Summer Camp program.

The Craig Liebenson Summer Boot Camp is a 7 week long program aimed at improving sports performance and preventing injuries in young baseball players.
The first week of the program consisted of two sessions of functional testing at Craig’s centre in Los Angeles- L.A. Sports and Spine, where each player’s core stabilization was assessed on the first day, and the following day they were evaluated for shoulder stabilization.
The third and final day of the week we spent at Santa Monica College Tracks testing and training for speed and agility.

Craig has been leading the way in functional rehabilitation for many years now and this concept is another step in a direction other practitioners interested in sports performance and functional rehabilitation would benefit from following. I am convinced that the young players participating in this program will perform better with a reduced risk of getting injured when next season commences.
