Cool Down

Increasing the flexibility of your players will help them play in a better stance and be more productive on the court.

These warm-up and injury prevention techniques go beyond the usual X's and O's of a coaching clinic. Coach Papalio's emphasis is on how to keep players healthy and strong. His recovery techniques, drills and exercises focus on making your players the best athletes they can be!
