*NEW* ASA Winter Performance Training Program – To Register, click here
This fun and educational program will focus on improving functional movement patterns critical to performance on the field and reducing the chance of injury. Every session will include work in the following areas: mobility, stability, power, speed, strength and quickness.
The program will teach the athletes exercises that improve recovery and maintain performance throughout the year. Each athlete will receive a packet of these exercises for reference.
We will test the athletes in the beginning and at the end of the program to track their progress. We will be using the elite technology of Fusion Sport Smartspeed and Smartjump equipment for the most accurate results. The testing will include: vertical jump, broad jump, ground contact time, 30 yd sprint, 5-10-5 pro agility, reaction and diagonal cutting tests with and without the ball, 300 yd shuttle. *Athletes not participating in the winter program can attend testing. $15 for 1 test, $25 for both*
The program will run for 12 weeks starting 11/27 and ending 2/22. There will not be training the week of 12/25.
The program is designed for athletes to attend one or two sessions a week and will run Monday-Thursday. The U9-U13 session will be from 5-6:30 and the U14-U19 session from 6:30-8. Monday and Tuesday will be the “A” sessions with Wednesday and Thursday being the “B” sessions. Maximum improvement will come from attending one “A” session and one “B” session per week.
