Injuries to the ankle are among the most common injuries for soccer players at any age. Soccer coaches should be aware of current research and best practices that suggest it is possible to decrease the incidence of soccer players' ankle injuries by providing an appropriate warm-up to utilize prior to practices and games. This article introduces two soccer-specific warm-ups (FIFA 11+ and the PEP) that have been designed as an attempt to reduce ankle injuries and other injuries. The description of these two programs include a brief overview of the activities, relevant research findings on their effectiveness, resources and weblinks for more detailed information including videotaped demonstrations, and tips on how to implement a new soccer warm up routine.
