What is Sportsmetrics™?
Dr. Frank Noyes and the doctors and researchers at Cincinnati SportsMedicine Research and Education Foundation have been leaders in developing programs to ensure athletes play well and stay well.  Sportsmetrics™ is a scientifically proven, six-week jump training program that incorporates proper stretching, special plyometric exercises and weight training.  It focuses on developing overall leg strength as well as improving balance in strength from the front to the back of the thigh.  Through specialized progression of jump/plyometric drills, athletes learn proper techniques for jumping and landing; increase overall leg strength; improve symmetry in right-to-left leg power and improve vertical jump.
Why is Sportsmetrics™ training so unique?
Sportsmetrics™ is not just another plyometric training program. Training proceeds from technique development to performance enhancement with each session building on the previous bout of training.  The strength and flexibility components have also been carefully reviewed for safety and effectiveness.  Essential to the success of the athlete is the trainer interaction and feedback throughout the program.  Student to trainer ratios are kept at 6 to 1 or betterto ensure that each athlete receives individualized recommendations and attention.
What are people saying about Sportsmetrics™?
Cincinnati SportsMedicine Research and Education Foundation received the Excellence in Research award from the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine. The Cincinnati Enquirer and Cincinnati Magazine joined in the excitement with full-page articles reporting the Sportsmetrics™ results.  Sportsmetrics™ has been featured in The New York Times, ESPN Wide World of Sports, Health, and on Good Morning America and Channel Five News.
What can Sportsmetrics™ do for me?
Pinehurst Surgical have certified staff physical therapists available to provide Sportsmetrics™ to your athletes. Today, almost 40 years after a federal mandate was enacted to provide gender equity in sports, a new generation of female athletics has emerged.   Sportsmetrics™ is the first program scientifically proven to decrease knee injuries in female athletes.  Neuromuscular training not only increases muscular power and jump height, but also decreases impact forces at the knee. Sportsmetrics™ is the program that focuses on the female athlete’s needs in training, butSportsmetrics™ is not just for females!  Males will benefit from developing overall leg strength and perfecting jumping and landing mechanics, too.
Pinehurst Surgical and Sportsmetrics™ can help elevate your soccer clube to the next level of fitness and injury prevention

AC Sandhills Volleyball is a new tradition at the club, started in the Spring of 2012. With the continuing philosophy of offering more sports through the club structure, ACS brought on Volleyball with the addition of what used to be the Sandhills Peppers. One team that was comprised primarily of High School Players from around the Moore County Area.

In the past two years, we have watched as one team grew into seven and adding over 60 players to the ranks of ACS Volleyball. With this, we also were able to create a path for 5 of our 7 U18 Girls who played in our program last year realize their desire to play at the next level and take college offers to expand their playing experience.

AC Sandhills will continue to drive the sport of Volleyball in the Sandhills Region, and with the addition of a new 12,000 sq. ft. training facility, ACS has proven once again, that we want to be the Greater Sandhills to have the best experience possible is realizing their dreams through sport.
