Boys Teams 15+ will have access to Friday positional training in lieu of some Friday practices. The purpose is allow players to focus on the skills necessary to perfect their positions that coaches aren’t always able to cover in a group setting. Positional dates vs. Friday practices will be sent out monthly.
Performance Training provides a challenging environment where athletes learn how to absorb and distribute force in multiple positions and directions. Maintaining a focus on proper movement, we gradually progress the development of body position, rhythm, strength, and power. This is done through progressions of holds, plyometrics, and strength/power based movements. Throughout these progressions we add elements of reaction and decision making. Our goal is to develop athletes holistically. This allows us to bridge the gaps between perception, cognition, and physical ability.
