All-Sports Edge

The program provide conditioning for athletes who participate in soccer, field hockey, lacrosse, basketball football, baseball, ice hockey, softball, track, wrestling, volleyball, dance, skiing, cheering, and more.

After many years as a 5-week onsite program, the All-Sports Speed & Conditioning program now provides 6 weeks of onsite sessions.

Boys and girls age 6 and older may register for the program. The youngest age group is in addition to the older groups -- 10 to 12, 13 to 15, and 16 and older.

As with all the age groups, the group that works best for you depends on your ability to handle more conditioning work. For example, if an 8 or 9 year old wants to "move up" to the next group, we welcome it.
