The program is designed for athletes of all ages through high school.

Athletes are grouped by age and guided each week by coaches through a variety of drills that focus on the program’s objectives.

The sessions include, but are not limited to, circuits, core, plyometrics, and endurance training. All drills are designed to maximize the ability and potential of each age group, from the youngest through a challenging program for high school athletes.
