FAST Forward Program
The FAST Forward program is for young athletes ages 13-18. The program picks up where the Movement First program leaves off. In the FAST Forward program, we begin teaching kids the basics of weight lifting by teaching fundamental lifts such as squats, front squats, hang cleans, bench press and resisted rotational exercises. In addition, the exercise is more structured as we teach these athletes how to progress through a structured training program, essentially training them on how to strength train.

This program also has more complex speed, agility and quickness training utilizing cone drills, resistance bands and partner training to refine athletic movement skills. Athletes who complete this program are stronger, more balanced, more powerful, have quicker reaction times and greater power development.

Call or email today for more information on the FAST Forward Program!!

Movement First
Movement First is a program for kids ages 8-12. Movement First places an emphasis on rhythm, coordination, balance, body awareness and developing basic movement patterns. These are the keys to developing high level athletes. Movement First is a progressive program that gradually challenges a young athletes ability to move in different directions, at different speeds, over varying distances. Movement First meets Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 4-5pm. The cost of this program is $48/month.

“The best part of this camp was teaching the basics of the athletic position, balanced movement and speed.”

College Prep Program

The College Prep Program is for high school athletes looking to play at the university level. This strength program is more regimented and spends more time on testing and evaluation to ensure the athlete is progressing properly. This program is a must for high school athletes looking to play at the college level, as all college programs will have a strength and conditioning aspect to their sport training.

The program begins with a postural and musculoskeletal movement screen to correct any deficiencies. Then after a 3-week introductory period to allow for learning of movements, athletes perform a battery of sport skill tests.
