Thank you for visiting Just4Kicks Boston, a unique website aimed at helping soccer players and their families better understand the dreaded ACL tear. Here you will find educational content on topics like the anatomy of the knee, mechanisms of ACL injury, different risk factors, and various prevention strategies to help mitigate your risk of injury. Blog posts and video content will be added frequently to help educate you on what you can do to reduce your risk of ending up on the sidelines.


Starting in Spring 2019, Just4Kicks Boston will be taking on new clients for individual and group soccer-specific Return to Sport and ACL Injury Prevention training sessions. The purpose of these sessions is to hone different soccer skills, but more importantly, teach athletes how to move safely and efficiently, so that they can continue to perform at the highest level. While the risk of any injury cannot be completely eliminated, these sessions will reduce each player’s risk of ACL rupture, while also enhancing his or her performance on the field.

All clients will receive:

  • One 60-minute initial evaluation and functional movement screen to assess:
    • Mobility and flexibility
    • Strength and power
    • Balance and stability
    • Muscular and cardiovascular endurance
    • Other risk factors that could lead to ACL injury
  • An individualized program tailored to meet unique needs identified during the initial evaluation
  • Evidence-based exercise to decreased modifiable risk factors

Training sessions will:

  • Address areas of concern than can overload the ACL or lead to other knee pathologies
  • Involve soccer-specific drills to improve speed, quickness, and agility, as well as technical aspects of the game including first touch, dribbling, passing, shooting, and defending
  • Include 60-minutes of smart, effective, and individualized training to enhance performance and mitigate risk of ACL injury
