30 minute sessions

This program will focus on developing physical literacy through FUN games and activities! Young athletes will LEARN how to move properly by applying functional movement patterns within developmentally appropriate games to improve coordination, core strength, speed, balance and more! All youth programs follow the American Development Model closely to ensure that young athletes achieve Long Term Athletic Development in a FUN and safe environment!

“My Son or Daughter is too young for organized training!” Our young participants WILL NOT be lifting weights, running suicides or doing 30 minutes of plyometrics! Each session will consist of FUN games and activities that incorporate a wide range of functional movement patterns and basic components of performance (see program outline below). Not only will each child enjoy their time with us, but regular participation in this program will result in improved cooridnation, strength, body composition and mental focus that will connect directly to everyday performance!
