Speed, Strength & Power Programs
If I had it may way, I would clone myself a gazillion times, boost my brainpower 1000%, and put a full time strength, speed & conditioning coach in every high school and elementary school across the US. I would design the biggest weight rooms with 20 power racks and 20 platforms. We’d have pull up bars hanging from the ceiling and medicine balls as far as the eye could see. Connected to the weight room would be a full 100 yd indoor turf field plus a multi-use floor for court sports.
There would be tons and tons of nutritious food free for the taking…
We would have developmental programs…
Clear guidelines for starting spots…
Sport coaches would take responsibility for the physical performance of their athletes…
Recruiting would be spelled out step-by-step…
Everyone, from the parents, coaches, athletes, administrators to the medical staff, athletic trainers, teachers, boosters and alumni would come together through open communication…
Knowing every high school doesn’t have the best facilities (let alone structured developmental programs or open lines communication) I’ve created a training facility with programs that serve as an extension of your school and sports team.
Our base level strength, speed and conditioning programs comprise of training sessions offered 12 months of the year. Athletes have the opportunity to supplement what their school or organization offers. Just like our Player Development Program, we take the necessary steps to learn the athlete, what they have to offer, where they’re falling short, and what we can accomplish by working together.
TO BE HERE, YOU HAVE TO BE SERIOUS, EVERY REP, EVERY SET, EVERY DAY
Just to be up front and honest, none of our training programs are designed to ‘catch all’ catering to everybody. We are only looking for serious athletes who, with our help, can identify where they want to go with sports. In the sales world, people who show interest but don’t take action are called tire kickers. Here we call them drop off pick ups.
FOCUS is not a ‘drop-off pick-up’ facility or program. Don’t treat it like one.
We need a designated support structure from day 1. If you’re considering ‘sending’ your kid somewhere for training, don’t ‘send’ them here. All our athletes are willing to put forth the expected effort each and every day. The ability level is really the least of our concern. We’re concerned with what you’re willing to do in order to enhance your potential.
Yes, these programs do cost money. They require your investment in time, money, and trust. Our athletes get great grades, have many other non-sports related activities, and have a social life. Those who have a hard time justifying the price either:
A. Haven’t taken the time to educate themselves what we really do and lump FOCUS together with all the other speed and agility programs (harsh.. but true).
B. Aren’t willing to put some of their non-essential spending in check. Material possessions take precedence over instilling intangible qualities in their kid’s development (very harsh, very true).
Ironically enough, when we survey our athletes and parents, increased confidence ranks #1 as the biggest benefit training with FOCUS. Athletes come through the door, nervous, excited, and with some spite in their belly. They’re upset with what’s missing in their school program, current level of play, or some other motivator. When they leave for the season, athletes are pumped to take their new found confidence and physical prowess and put it to the test.
STAGES OF PROGRAM OPTIONS
We break down our base strength, speed, and conditioning programs by age appropriateness, interest, and commitment. We know no two athletes progress at the same rate, or in the same manner. Training athletes has to be looked at as a longer term progress where specific targets need to be met in order to ‘graduate’ to the next level. Take a look at the different programs and see where you fit.
