Not forgetting the foundation we have built in your athlete’s earlier years, here we start to work on cardiovascular/respiratory endurance, power, speed, strength and stamina. These athletes have discovered the importance of developing neuromuscular patterns and increasing working on accuracy and coordination with increased repetition. This program focuses on progressing and maintaining athletic movement, while refining and ingraining fundamental skills of speed, agility and power. This repeated rehearsal leads to permanent and positive athletic change.
The inclusion of formal strength and power training provides benefits in two ways. First, proper movement techniques with increased force production lead to maximized potential. Secondly, as athletes naturally increase in height, weight, strength and aggressiveness, the need for improved joint integrity and flexibility is vital for reducing the chance of injury.
