Youth Athletic Development Program

Our youth athletic development program is not only a path for the aspiring elite athletes; it’s an approach to physical activity and development for every child. Emphasis is placed on a safe progression of exercises that will improve the participants: strength, physical literacy and motor skills.

What is the goal of the program?

The goal of the program is to promote a fun and positive fitness experience that will help create a foundation of fitness for a lifetime commitment to health and wellness.

How does it work?

We accomplish this goal by teaching participants the essential fundamental motor skills that help to create a foundation of muscular strength, with the integration of neuromuscular training (e.g. weight training, plyometric, speed, agility, and coordination drills).

Group Classes:
