Static Stretching

In response to the question about static stretching feeling good – absolutely, it does feel good because it has a calming effect. In the period pre practice “socialization time” I have found they will do it then on their own. I give two minutes sometimes during warm-up to “stretch where they are tight,” a way to encourage them to read their bodies and to feel good. I try to teach the athletes and coaches that stretching is a separate training unit to improve range of motion. Warm-up is to create readiness for training.
