JUNIOR HIGH PERFORMANCE
Ages 12 -14
The Junior High Performance is for athletes who have entered the Train to Train stage of the Long Term Athletic Development (LTAD) model. Athletes in these groups are typically beginning to specialize in different sports and are closely monitored to observe the effects that physical growth and training are having on them.
These groups begin every session with a focused approach to improving physical literacy through movement skills. The goal is to introduce basic speed and agility concepts and techniques to build a foundation for all movement. The next part is a periodized approach to weight training, with an emphasis on basic strength, correcting physical literacy gaps and fixing muscular imbalances. These groups are also sometimes necessary for older athletes who do not have a background of athletic development!
