As long as you teach your guys to get strong you should be fine.

ALL of the non-contact problems I've seen in soccer are valgus injuries because of collapsing knees etc. (because of cutting and such) ESPECIALLY in girls.

As long as you're making them strong with correct biomechanical patterns you're doing a great service by cutting injury potential down. Performance is just gravy.
