THE CORE OF OUR TRAINING

To improve the athlete’s physiological state of readiness and confidence. The more confident an athlete has in his or her ability, the better the athlete will perform. An expectation for us is for the athletes to exhibit technical mastery in their best practices leading into the competition as well as the day of performance.

ACHIEVE A HIGHER LEVEL OF PERFORMANCE

To achieve a higher level of performance players must consistently attend workouts in order to create a more efficient neuromuscular pattern. A more efficient and conditioned neuromuscular pattern the least likely players are to get injured. If an injury does occur the recovery time will be faster to a well-developed neuromuscular pattern.

TRAINING APPROACH

Training approach includes linear and circular speed development. Agility drills that improve the athletic balance and athletic coordination that is critical to reprogramming in-balances and preventing injuries. Conditioning Training that focuses on reducing oxygen consumption during a sport and increasing maximum performance sustain output.
