COMPETITION HAS NEVER BEEN HEALTHIER
Everybody has a personal best ahead of them. Playing better, going faster, making the team. ATH provides training for athletes of all levels so they can reach their individual potential.
Youth athletes are not mini adults and, therefore, must have a progressive training approach specific to the unique needs of youth and adolescent athletes. ATH coaches optimize performance training for all sports without risking individual health. Athletes are evaluated and grouped by developmental age and aligned with grade level to ensure safety, efficacy and enjoyment, crossover to account for transition through periods of accelerated growth.
Focused Athletic Advancement
More than moving fast, speed requires strength, power and mobility
Turn quick reaction into coordinated, agile movement
Resistance is fundamental to increase load capacity and hypertrophy
Performance personified against the real competition – your personal bests
Optimize rest and recovery
PERSONAL PATH TO PERFORMANCE
Pre-Adolescent (8-12) – Athletes focus on functional movement skills, neural pathway development, physical literacy and mastering technique to lay the foundation for future athletic enhancement. Training sessions are 60 minutes and emphasize on speed, coordination, flexibility and movement skills.
Early- Adolescent (12-14) – Athletes progress to weight-bearing exercises specific to their transition though their growth spurt. Training ensures the development of athletic ability without increasing the likelihood of injury. Loads and intensities are dependent on maturation with exercises that focus on strength, power and speed development.
Mid/Late-Adolescent (14-18) – Athletes’ training is designed to prepare them for the rigors of high school athletics and beyond. Exercises increase in complexity and focus on improving strength, speed, agility and power. Athletes are educated on the importance of health to ensure optimal nutritional and lifestyle habits to sustain performance.Learn More
Evaluation & PROGRESS
Coaching for performance requires understanding and measuring potential. The student athlete evaluation is designed to assess each athlete’s unique characteristics to ensure they are categorized in properly based on physical and maturational status, movement ability and exercise competency. Pre and post testing is based on duration of time in the program to enforce the important of consistency and commitment in training. Roughly every 12 sessions athletes will be tested in the area of jump, sprint, strength and power. Development is tracked and monitored through performance reporting.
