Fitness & Weight Management

  • Agility
  • Confidence
  • Jumping
  • Linear and multidirectional speed
  • Strength

These sessions are designed for off-season student athletes to prepare for their next sport. The intensity of this performance training program, added to the in-sport student athlete’s routine practice schedule, may not allow for needed recovery time.

We recommend three-season, multi-sport student athletes consider participating in our summer performance training programs, Sports Performance Training 1:1, or small group offerings. These programs are offered year-round and provide flexible scheduling and balance training with an athlete’s current practice demands.
