FIFA 11+ is an effective injury prevention program developed by FIFA. Designed as a complete warm-up, it can be done in place of a regular warm-up before training/games and includes specific strengthening exercises and drills to reduce the likelihood of injuries in football players. The exercises are designed to improve strength in the lower limbs and core, greater neuromuscular control and awareness throughout a range of motions.
Workshops will be held throughout the 2017 season to teach coaches and players how to effectively introduce and continue to use the program. For now, Football Federation Victoria are targeting female teams aged 12+.
