Year Round Training
All athletes, and especially those that play only a single sport, should be participating in a year round strength and conditioning program. Middle school, high school, male, female, football, baseball, soccer, basketball, softball, volleyball, etc. etc. etc. Everyone can benefit from a properly designed strength and conditioning program.
The problem is, most middle/high schools do not have one. The football coach, or the baseball coach will put together some workouts that they think the athletes should be doing. Without trying to be offensive, most of these coaches are not qualified to design these workouts. Their specialty, and their focus, should be the actual sport itself. Many of them are not overly concerned with the long-term health and athletic success of their athletes. They are most concerned with wins and losses for the year.
A true strength and conditioning program should take the individual athlete in question, and cater to his/her particular needs, strengths, weaknesses, practice schedule, study schedule, nutrition habits, injury history, etc. in order to produce the best possible results for that individual athlete. We understand that is nearly impossible to do in the school setting, which is why private gyms such as ours exist.
We have the ability to incorporate everything the athlete needs, into a year-round (and they should be training year round, even during the season) program to be able to set the individual athlete up for long-term athletic success.
Those athletes that play a single sport to do not have the benefit of improved athleticism via cross training in other sports. They are at an even higher risk of injury from overuse doing the same sport. A program such as ours incorporates aspects of other sports into the training to give them what they have been missing.
Females normally have much less access to the weight room at school vs their male counterparts. Here, they have unlimited access, and absolutely thrive in this environment. We absolutely love working with our girls. Watching them grow, get stronger, and improve their confidence and self-esteem is amazing.
If the goal is to move to the college level, strength and conditioning is a requirement. Get used to it, and gain a leg up by starting it now.
