Our world-class coaches and strength and conditioning experts will provide a comprehensive fitness evaluation and assessment of playing level. Based on these results, in combination with the athlete’s goals, we will create customized sports-specific workout plans to unlock a student-athlete’s full potential. Our plan focuses on the following hierarchy for athletic improvement:
An athlete who is injured cannot help their team achieve success. A primary responsibility of strength and conditioning coach is to recognize weak areas of an athlete’s body and prescribe methods to fix those weak areas.
The most effective way to garner results from a strength and conditioning program is through the use of ground based multiple joint exercises. The proper use of ground based multiple joint exercises will improve an athlete’s overall strength and minimize imbalances.
Triple Extension Movements:
The ability to run, jump, and perform explosive sport movements remains the key for achieving success in sports. Through the proper use of exercises that require triple extension of hip, knee, and ankle joints athletes can greatly improve their explosive power.
Sport Specific Training and Skill Development:
The use of sport specific training methods in agility and conditioning training, combined with drills that enhance skill development, will ensure that athletes are meeting the metabolic demands of their sport.
