HOW MANY TIMES CAN MY YOUTH/ATHLETE TRAIN PER WEEK AND WHAT IS OPTIMAL?
The amount of training per week depends on the schedule of the athelte, but in general 2 – 3 days per week is recommended with 2 days being optimal.
WHAT IS THE BEST PROGRAM FOR MY ATHLETE?
The best program for your athlete depends on the his/her goals, and yours. The most accurate way to determine the best fit is to contact us to book an evaluation which will test your athlete's speed, agility and power. During that time, our staff will discuss the results of the evaluation along with goals and recommend the most appropriate program for your athlete.
WHAT IS YOUTH SPORTS PERFORMANCE TRAINING?
Sports performance training focuses on training a young athlete to be the best he/she can be in his/her chosen sport(s). The training includes the foundations of any good athlete: speed, agility, strength and self-confidence. An added benefit of good sports performance training is a reduction of sports related injuries.
HOW DOES SCHEDULING WORK?
Our training sessions are 55 minutes long. Since most youth/athletes train 2 – 3 times per week, we provide maximum flexibility for your busy schedule. You pick the days based on your availability! We even offer Saturday (and sometimes Sunday) classes. Please see the training and booking tab for more infromation.
HOW MANY YOUTH/ATHLETES ARE IN A CLASS?
Class size depends on the program, but generally we follow class sizes below:
Sports Performance (Rookies, Blue Chips, Pros)– 10 to 12 athletes
Linear Speed/Change of Direction – 10 to 12 athletes
Semi-Personal – up to 4 athletes
Personal Training - 1-on-1
DOES THE PROGRAM INCLUDE WEIGHT-LIFTING? I HAVE HEARD THAT IT'S UNSAFE FOR YOUNG CHILDREN?
Our Rookies classes do not include weight lifting, but use body weight techniques to increase strength in a safe and effective way. Athletes in all of our other program options will incorporate carefully scripted and monitored weight lifting into their programs. All of our strength scripts for these programs have been written and approved by experts in the field of youth sports performance. You can rest assured that your athlete will be well taken care of in our weight program!
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO SEE RESULTS?
Results depend on the dedication and effort your the athlete puts into the program. Most youth/athletes who come 2 times per week and are engaged in the sessions will feel and see results within a matter of weeks. To monitor progress we conduct monthly challenges to reevaluate athletes to see where they have improved.
WHAT IS THE PROCESS TO ENTER THE TRAINING PROGRAM?
The first step is to book the "New Student Evaluation". Once the evaluation is complete, a performance will discuss the various training options with you and your athlete. Then you will purchase your plan then you will be able to book your athlete's training sessions.
HOW DO I KNOW IF MY ATHLETE HAS IMPROVED?
Athletes in our Sports Performance group training programs are tested once a month as part of our Student of the Month competition. This helps to 1 - show you and your athlete that the hard work they are doing is working, 2 - show the parent that the money they invest into the program is being well spent!, 3 - show the coaching staff the improvement levels of the athletes. Parents will be able to see their athlete's improvement numbers each month. Athletes in the semi-personal and personal training programs are tested during the last session of their package.
