The Competitive EDGE Sports Performance Program will hold an open house from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, March 12, at its new location in the Niagara Falls High School Field House.

The event was originally scheduled in January, but was postponed due to inclement weather.

"March is National Athletic Training Month, so this new date will give us an opportunity to both celebrate our new location and highlight the important role played by certified athletic trainers in helping athletes improve performance while providing them with quality care," Sports Medicine Director Tony Surace said.

A service of Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center, the Competitive EDGE is a dedicated sports performance program that helps athletes at all levels from across Western New York increase their success on the field, ice or court.

The program's new home on the Niagara Falls High School campus features a large open arena for training and a fully furnished weight room with Olympic hammer strength racks, cardio equipment, TRX total-body resistance exercise equipment, weighted sleds, agility ladders and much more.

"Our certified athletic trainers and certified strength and conditioning specialists are committed to improving athletes' performance through education, hard work, nutrition and injury prevention," Surace said. "We use up-to-date training techniques for the dedicated athlete who wants to work hard and become a better athlete in his or her desired sport."

The open house will feature information and demonstrations on strength training, plyometrics, agility training, sports nutrition and Pilates, as well as the Competitive EDGE's ACL bridge, return to throwing and sport-specific training programs.

Access to the Niagara Falls High School Field House is available from Pine Avenue via Packard Court, east of 39th Street. For information about the Competitive EDGE or the March 12 event, call 716-215-0723.
