hawks-logoThe inagural season for the NSBA Hawk youth travel teams was in 2009 with a single team at the 11u age level. After the initial season the program expanded to 4 teams covering the 10u to 12u age levels. The program now consists of a large number of teams ranging from the 8u to the 14u age level that participate in Mid Suburban Baseball League, local tournaments, Glenview Fall league, and indoor winter training at NSSA. The growth of the Hawk program is due to the emphasis placed on player development and fun by the NSBA staff of professional coaches.

Muscular System Solutions (MSS) is a muscular system clinic located in Highland Park, specializing in Greg Roskopf’s Muscle Activation Techniques™ (MAT™).  Our vision is to fill the void that exists between having surgery and pursuing physical therapy, and transitioning to regular exercise and/or sports. It is natural for bodies to breakdown over time, but by optimizing your muscular system from the beginning one can prevent: Loss of muscular output, loss of motor control, loss of sensation, loss of joint range of motion, increase of muscular tightness, pain, and ultimately joint breakdown that inevitably leads to surgery.

MSS wants to eliminate muscular dysfunction for anyone who is experiencing residual joint pain, and/or recovering from an injury or surgery. We also serve athletes who are looking for a quicker recovery, or want to maintain optimal performance.  MSS will improve and manage people’s muscular systems on two fronts- simultaneously improving joint mobility, while still offering muscular stability, otherwise known as a term we coined as MOSTABILITY®.
