Sports Performance Training
An effective training program designed to help athletes of all levels enhance their athletic performance safely and efficiently. The program takes into account the athlete’s specific sport and season. Every athlete is evaluated and tested to identify strengths and weakness. We use theses results to prescribe a well structured, goal orientated performance program. If the athlete is preparing for a specific test such as a Combine, showcase or a try-out, a series of Pre -Performance assessments are administered to provide a baseline score. This will be useful to determine the results of the program after administering the Post Performance Assessment test.
Youth Athletic Development classes
Every session is delivered by Coach Rivera in a small group environment. The youth program is split into two separate classes depending upon the age of the athlete. The first program is designed to teach basic athletic skills (skipping, galloping, hopping, and jumping) to students ages 8-11; this is typically referred to as the skill hungry years. One of the primary focuses of each session is to create a fun, positive atmosphere. The students would be introduced to the following:
· Fundamental Bodyweight Strength Exercises
· Correct Running Form
· Coordination and Balance
· Multidirectional Techniques
This program helps students develop coordination, strength, balance, and flexibility during their growth years. During the youth program, core skills are taught with different exercises, activities, and games to reinforce correct technique while catering to the shorter attention spans of youth athletes.
The second program is for ages 12-14. This program is designed to progressively increase an athlete’s total athletic performance through increasing:
· Efficiency in Stride Length and Stride Frequency
· Linear Speed and Acceleration
· Multi-Direction and Deceleration
· Strength and Power
· Metabolic Conditioning
Each program contains four major components that progress as the group becomes more advanced. They are called Active Dynamic Warm-Up, Movement, Strength and Energy System Development. These programs are 45- 60 minute sessions, which athletes attend 2-3 times a week. The more often the athlete participates in a program the better results achieved.
