She was born in Burnley, but grew up in Edale in the Peak District. Her introduction to the outdoor life came early with an abundance of family holidays focussed upon walking, scrambling and climbing.

Katy did her first lead on an indoor wall at the age of eight. She started doing BRYCCS competitions a few years later and got on to the Junior team aged 12. Now she helps you take up climbing.

#HerMoJo ♀VIDEO - Why Women/Girls have more ACL injuries VIA: Player Fitness & Performance

12:00 - Six ACL recovery exercises

13:00

Players Fitness & Performance supports #HerMoJo - a gentle 'nudge' to help get more women & girls, more ACTIVE!

ACL recovery programme for women & girls. Scroll for all six videos.

#1 Anatomical Makeup

The Q-Angle is the relationship between the hips and knees. It is more pronounced in females because their hips are designed to be child-bearing.

Unfortunately, this angle from the hip to the knee puts girls at much higher risk for tearing their ACL and having other knee injuries.
But, fear not...there are solutions and injury prevention modalities you can learn below.
 
#2 Flexibility and Mobility
 
In a lot of ways, girls are more flexible than guys. It is a good thing for moany girls have hypermobile knees for example, which gives them the ability to hyperextend their knees. Again, not a good thing when it comes to jumping (I.E. netball players) or even accelerating from a stopped position (I.E. a lacrosse player attacking a ball after the draw).

 

 
Again, there are viable solutions every female athlete can do to strengthen the knees and counteract some of the unnecessary mobilities and flexibilities they have.
  
#3 Hormonal Changes 
 
Research shows that the hormonal changes during the menstrual cycle can put them at a higher risk of injury. Check our article on training & menstruation. Now you know why, and you are asking yourself, “How can I give my daughter the best chance of AVOIDING the season and possible career ending ACL Tear?”

There are 6 exercises every female athlete should be doing year round to keep their knees resilient and injury-free.
 
Most of them they can do on their own with little to no equipment.
 
1) Clam Shell - WATCH on YouTube

This exercise will strengthen the glutes big time, which are the top muscles that stop the knee from caving in. The motion works directly against the inward force that causes ACL injuries.

 
2) Double Leg Bridge w/mini band - WATCH on YouTube

This exercise has multiple benefits. It is going to make you a lot faster, plus it will strengthen hamstrings AND glutes to further stabilize knee and hips.

 
3) Single Leg Step Behind - WATCH on YouTube

This one looks 10X easier than it is. To truly go all the way down and up, without the knee caving in and without pushing off the bottom pad, requires a ton of strength from the quads, hamstrings, and glutes. This one builds off the previous two.

 
4) Hex Bar Deadlift- 2-3 sets of 5-7 reps in-season - WATCH on You Tube

The hex bar allows athletes to achieve the optimal deadlift position without putting their lower back at risk (opposed to a barbell deadlift). This exercise not only reinforces all of the muscles and movements from above, but it is a total body exercise that also incorporates a lot of upper body. Highly effective for performance and ACL prevention when done correctly.

  
5) Mini Band Side Steps- 2-3 sets of 10 reps in-season - WATCH on YouTube

This one works the athlete in movement. Most ACL injuries come from cutting and changing direction. By doing the stationary side steps first, you are priming the body to withstand the knee from diving in when you go to plant and cut. 

 
6) Single leg box jump stick - WATCH on YouTube

This is the highest level of difficulty of the six exercises, which means it is also the most effective and beneficial when done correctly. You will want to build up to this one, starting out with double leg jumps and landings before progressing to single leg. A female athletes ability to decelerate and keep the knee from wiggling is KEY to preventing ACL injury.

You can do a few of these exercises on your own with zero equipment. Make sure you are doing them correctly and with control.  More from Player's Fitness & Performance - HERE

#MenoMoJo -♀VIDEO Caffeine and your Menopause - .@MayoClinic

13:00 - How does caffeine affect your menopause?

13:00

Does drinking caffiene affect your menopause?

Dr. Stephanie Faubion discusses a Mayo Clinic study, published by the journal Menopause, which found an association between caffeine intake and more bothersome hot flashes and night sweats in postmenopausal women. The study also showed an association between caffeine intake and fewer problems with mood, memory and concentration in perimenopausal women, possibly because caffeine is known to enhance arousal, mood and attention. This is the largest study to date on caffeine and menopausal symptoms.

Drinking caffeine may worsen the hot flashes and night sweats that affect roughly two-thirds of women as they go through menopause, new survey data suggests.
"While these findings are preliminary, our study suggests that limiting caffeine intake may be useful for those postmenopausal women who have bothersome hot flashes and night sweats," said researcher Dr. Stephanie Faubion, director of the Women's Health Clinic at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mi

But caffeine -- a stimulant found in coffee and colas -- appears to have a different effect on women beginning the transition into menopause (known as perimenopause). In their case, caffeine might boost their mood, memory and concentration, the survey suggested.
The findings, published online July 23 in the journal Menopause, stem from a Mayo Clinic poll of more than 1,800 menopausal women conducted between 2005 and 2011. Symptoms were compared between caffeine users and nonusers.

Gender Equality

Gender equity in sport isn’t just about providing participation opportunities for both males and females within your club… it’s about treating everyone fairly and providing opportunities for all, at all levels, from the committee through to the spectator.

If sporting clubs want to grow their participation and membership base, particularly by women and girls, it is important to ensure the environment and the clubs culture supports them to do so in a safe and inclusive way. There are many benefits to having more women in and around your club such as an increase in membership, more volunteers and more diverse skills, creating a family friendly environment…the list goes on.

#NETBALLMoJo ♀VIDEO - Develop the Universal Athletic Position with .@nettyheads

13:00 - find your UAP with Nick from The Youth Academy

14:00

The Universal Athletic Position allows for efficiency of movement. Join Nick to learn more about this position and its relationship to Netball. Nettyheads are coaching specialists in NSW, Australia.

Corrective exercise and performance enhancement specialists consider this position vital to athletic movement. All athletes, no matter the sport, should learn this stance.

“Being proficient with this setup is a necessity for athletes to reach their full athletic potential,” According to Drew Walsh from 'Dick's Sporting goods. Walsh says. “If proper mechanics are overlooked, we then create poor habits and movement patterns.”

HOW TO GET INTO THE UNIVERSAL ATHLETIC POSITION

Begin by standing in an athletic stance with your feet slightly outside your shoulders. Attempt to evenly distribute your weight through your midfoot. Once you’re in position, follow these steps:

  • Drive your hips straight back. Your chest should lean slightly forward.
  • Bend your knees until your shoulders are in line with your toes.
  • Fully extend your arms, aligning them with your torso.
  • Bring your shoulder blades down and back.
  • Hold this position while maintaining a flat back. Remember to shift your weight through your midfoot.

Walsh notes that understanding the universal athletic position can lead to more advanced, intricate movements to further your training. “Once this setup is mastered, athletes can progress to more complex movements to maximize transfer to all strength training, movement mechanics and sports-specific tasks, while also enhancing performance and helping to reduce risk of injury,” he says.

International – we’re currently working to get NETBALLMoJo translated (into Zulu, Xhosa, Swahili etc.) and digitised. Keen to work with UK NGBs and International Federations to help get the ‘Empowerment through Sport’ message across. Digital editions can be distributed virtually free (e.g. 50 Rupees) and delivered directly, circumventing local (often misogynistic) prejudices – we believe that gives WSNet a unique momentum that can really change the lives of girls in both western and 'third world' countries. If you can help please email paul.r@wsnet.co.uk with your interest.
