Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does ASPIRE work?
A. You call us and we talk about your needs as a parent/coach. We will come to you or you can bring kids to us. After we agree on a time, we come out and teach kids, coaches, and parents a little about why the injuries occur, what can be done, and then go over things that they can do on their own. Ideally, we come three times to review and progress, but we’ll suit your needs.
Q. It’s really free? There’s no “fine print” is there? What’s the catch?
A. No fine print. No catch. We just ask that if you are pleased with the information, please consider making a donation to ASPIRE so we can continue to spread the word. We have lofty goals and need the financial support.
Q. What do you get with the ASPIRE program?
A. Coaches/parents get a manual and distribute accordingly. Printing costs prohibit hard copies for everyone as of now. We are working on online videos to access. Plus, you can always contact us if you’re having questions or issues you’d like to address with injuries.
Q. What makes you qualified to do this?
A. Dan Lorenz, ASPIRE founder, has almost 20 years in sports medicine. He is a Licensed Athletic Trainer, a Licensed Physical Therapist, and a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. He is a fellowship-trained physical therapist in sports medicine and has previously served as an athletic trainer and physical therapist for the Kansas City Chiefs. Additionally, he speaks about and writes routinely about these injuries at professional meetings. Rest assured, you’re getting the most current and evidence-based interventions to help the kids.
Q. How does the schedule work?
A. ASPIRE is strictly voluntary at this time. Therefore, we have jobs and families to attend to. We ask for flexibility when scheduling times to meet with us so we can properly meet our work and personal duties. We will work diligently to find a time that works for us to get together.
