Why Join the Youth Training Academy?
  • Injury prevention 
  • Performance enhancement
    • Long-term muscle hypertrophy.
    • Short-term neuromuscular function improvements.
    • Coordination for kids is important and lifting weights allows them to become familiar with their bodies making a brain to muscle connection.  This will make their reactions quicker and more accurate when it comes to competition.
    • Power production and strength can be worked on at an early age. Prevent early exclusion of sport participation by not being cut. These adaptations occur in a quick manner in athletes with no experience because of motor unit recruitment patterns developing. Even at this early age, muscles can be detrained so if you don’t use it you lose it.
  • Strength training is SAFE. 
    • Will not harm the growth plates.  It will actually increase growth hormone and testosterone. 
  • Expert coaching
    • Kids need to be in a safe environment where properly certified individuals are supervising and coaching technique with EVERY athlete.
