RICHMOND, VA (February 24, 2015) – The Elite Clubs National League (ECNL), the nation’s premier female youth soccer platform, has entered into a partnership with Fit For 90, the leading player monitoring and readiness platform in the United States. Fit For 90 will educate and provide resources to ECNL clubs to help coaches and players maximize performance while minimizing risks of injury. As a tool for improving player health and performance, the Fit For 90 Player Monitoring Platform will be part of the ECNL’s expanding Health & Education Resources (H.E.R.) Platform.
Fit For 90 uses a dynamic online platform to quantify fatigue, stress and training load, muscle soreness, and training and competition readiness for individual players to assist in individual and team periodisation. This information allows coaches to adjust training demands for each player and team, and helps players learn to safely manage their athletic load.
The ECNL and Fit For 90 partnership will kick off at the ECNL Play-Offs in Seattle, WA in June, where ECNL coaches will attend an educational seminar on periodisation, managing training loads for peak performance, and reducing risk of injury. Additional seminars for ECNL clubs will be held (digital and in person) throughout the year. Every ECNL club will also have access to the Fit For 90 online platform for their teams at significantly reduced rates for the year.
As we learn more when it's rolled out this summer, we will look at opportunities to see how we can provide this benefit to as many players in our club as possible.
