JULY 2024

Speed and Agility Rust-Buster Mini Camp for Teens

Wednesdays | July 31-August 21
4:00-5:30PM
Members $100 | Non-memberd $125

Calling all Fall athletes! Time to shake off the rust so you can enter preseason ready to train!

This mini-camp prepares middle and high school-aged athletes of all levels for their respective fall sports after a summer off in a low-pressure, yet challenging environment and without the added stress of performing in front of coaches. The camp is led by experienced speed and agility coaches with backgrounds in high-level athletics as both athletes and coaches.

Programming will consist of speed, plyometric, and agility drills using ladders, cones, hurdles, and sleds to retrain basic athletic movement and recondition fast twitch muscles. By reintroducing a consistent, yet easy-to-maintain schedule for the summer, athletes can reacclimate to having a training regimen. Athletes will complete the camp feeling warmed up and confident to begin preseason training.
