“We are very excited to be a part of Players First. This is an exciting movement in U.S. youth soccer to create a better environment for players to stay on the field and compete at their best,” said John Cone, founder and CEO of Fit for 90. “Monitoring is highly prevalent in pro sports, but it is infinitely more important in young athletes due to the combined stresses of growth and training; the knowledge our monitoring system delivers helps coaches balance stress and readiness to prevent injury and cultivate healthy development.”
