Youth Sports

Our Youth Sports Program focuses on the development of young athletes. Age-appropriate instruction will teach skills to make them better inside and outside of the game- like sportsmanship, effective listening, and self-confidence. With a range of age groups, our coaches allow players to solidify knowledge of the basics and progressively delve into more advanced techniques. Perhaps most importantly, kids learn through team-based work that fitness is fun.

  • Youth Basketball will allow young athletes to focus on developing their skills on the court.

  • Youth Strength & Conditioning will improve locomotion adaptations and improve mechanics and movement patterns through compound exercises. Age and skill appropriate programming will be implemented including proprioceptive coordination to help develop more efficient movement patterns. Athletes will be given an introduction to functional strength training including bodyweight, plyometric, and age-appropriate resistance training.

  • If you're interested in private lessons, contact Josh here.
