This past week the Saucon Valley School District campus was buzzing with a lively array of girls drenched with sweat and neon who ranged in the age from 7 to 13.  Dozens of young ladies spent their mornings under the watchful eye of Brickhouse Strength owner and operator Chris Fluck.  For the second consecutive summer, Chris and his staff once again introduced and taught some essential skills and techniques that are designed to enhance athleticism and, more importantly, attempt to help reduce the likelihood of injury.  More and more studies support the unfortunate idea that female athletes are more prone to sports-related injuries than males.  Chris realizes this problem and is again trying to do something about it.
