Sports Readiness Training

Event Date: 
Tue, 07/17/2012 (All day) - Thu, 08/09/2012 (All day)

The attached flyer provides details on this training opportunity. It is a four-week co-ed strength and fitness course to guide and prepare young adults (entering 6th grade - 12th grade) for their upcoming sports season. Participants will meet twice a week for 1 hour per session. One session is for 6th-8th and the other is for 9th-12th. This will not be sport specific but instead the focus will be on core related strength training utilizing medicine balls, kettlebells, etc. Plyometrics and agility drills will be a part of this training along with other aerobic activity. You will be provided a schedule of workouts to do at home on a weekly basis to complement the twice a week sessions. A log will be given to each person to track his or her effort over the four-week course. At the end of the four-week course attendees will be given recommendations for how to continue the program as well as tips for all around training. This course is not meant to be a four-week crash course on getting in shape, but is meant to provide lessons on how to develop a training program that is gradual and realistic, but intensive enough to prepare young athletes for their upcoming sports season. Each participant is asked to bring water and to wear running shoes to each session. Proper shoes for running, jumping, bounding, etc. is essential to prevent injuries.
