What is MayaVate?
MayaVate is a mobile application housing strengthening exercises, plyometrics, balance training, agility drills, and active stretching for volleyball players. Doing these exercises correctly and consistently has been proven to reduce the risk of a knee injury in adolescent volleyball players. These exercises must be done correctly to provide the full effect and help the player(s) long term. Young female volleyball players are more susceptible to ACL injuries, in fact it is one of the most common injuries for female athletes.

by 70% and ankle sprains by 62%. Which develops the question why has this not been implemented for
girls’ volleyball? That is where MayaVate comes in: opposed to training coaches to teach the course at
