    Performance Course Summer Programs - 6th-8th Grade

    Developmental Course 

    The Developmental Course is geared towards our middle school aged athletes (6th grade - 8th grade) who are starting to grow their love for sports and training.

    We will focus on essential movement patterns in the weight room with an emphasis on building strength through bodyweight movements. This allows the athletes to continue to develop and apply their skills in a more structured weight room setting.

    The goal is to provide the athletes with competency in the weight room and improve overall functional strength. As athletes continue to mature, they will have developed proper technique that will allow them to maximize the benefits from strength training later. Through our movement training, athletes will acquire movement skills that transfer to their sport.

    Proper running, jumping, landing, and decelerating mechanics will be emphasized. Competing in an enthusiastic team environment and continuing to cultivate character through hard work will always be highlighted.
