Preventing Ankle and Knee Injuries Coach Craig CSCS, ACSM-CPT, CPTS Like a viral infection, the aerial attack has swept over the surfing nation. From inverted slob grabs to the rodeo flips, air innovation has slowly crept it's way into all facets of surfing. Whether you like it or not, airs are here to stay and probably continue to march into further progression. While surfing, surfers target their launch ramp, compress, extend, launch, and land. Air heights can vary depending on the force produced by the wave and the surfer himself. The higher you fly, the harder you will fall. Landing an air is the tricky part due to the fact that you land on a surface that is constantly changing and is unstable. Quite often our center of gravity during a landing is not centered between our feet which leads to awkward recoveries (especially if inverted or rotating in the air). Knee and ankle injuries are stacking up in numbers because of the critical landing phase of an air. Unfortunately a good sprain or strain can keep you out of the water for a good ten weeks.

The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) is part of a larger initiative to make the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) more effective in fulfilling its mission. From becoming more streamlined and efficient to moving to a 21st century workforce, the administration has challenged ACF to evolve and innovate. Reimagining the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) program and the human services starts with putting people at the center of everything the agency does. It includes leveraging the power of data and harnessing the free market to increase effectiveness.
