This presentation will cover the training effect of immediate visual feedback on vertical ground reaction forces and frontal plane knee positions in early and late adolescent females. We will also discuss landing strategies and response to feedback across these age groups and how they may differ between populations. This presentation will provide clinicians with a deeper understanding of how different age groups interpret feedback and how to utilize verbal and visual cues to optimize landing mechanics.
