Foam Roller Exercises for Kids

It's hard to get kids to properly stretch before practice and foam rolling isn't exactly "fun," but if you add it into your little athlete's warm-up regimen now then they'll be a lot less likely to injure themselves long-term.

When done correctly and regularly, foam rolling can maintain healthy soft tissue and improve range of motion.

To perform these exercises, you need one of a few rudimentary items: A foam roller, a tennis ball or a stick. Encourage your child or player to spend five to 10 minutes on areas that are sore and tight, three to four times a week.
