Sports Performance Training

Velocity provides a safe and structured sports and academic development program for teens that teaches discipline on and off athletic fields. Our goal is to provide young athletes with a structured athletic development program that also incorporates the importance of academic studies. We want to inspire young men and women to have fun as they pursue sports, health and wellness in their every day living, while maintaining their best in academic achievement. 

At Velocity, our athletes will participate in various speed, sports performance, strength and conditioning activities including:

  • Proper running form and technique drills
  • Lateral mobility enhancement
  • Plyometrics
  • Detailed warm-ups, stretches and recovery techniques
  • Strength training
  • Hand-eye coordination development
  • Goal setting to identify specific performance targets
  • Athletic assessments to evaluate the current situation and the gap between the desired performance
  • Implementation of proper technique for different types of movements for various sports

Athletes will also participate in weekly nutrition lessons to ensure maximum potential development. Many young athletes today are unaware of the importance of proper nutrition and hydration, which adversely affects their overall performance athletically and academically. Through Velocity at the YMCA, young athletes will have the opportunity to learn about nutrition and healthy living, devote time to studies, build community and enhance their athletic performance to improve their overall well-being in spirit, mind and body.

To keep athletes safe, all our trainers and coaches are AED- and CPR-certified. For every 10 athletes, we will have a certified personal trainer or wellness counselor providing instruction and supervision. Water is provided for all athlete participants during hours of instruction. Sessions will be fun and enjoyable for all athletes to keep them engaged and motivated.

  1. Will athletes be working with older or younger athletes? Athletes will be grouped by size, strength and age to provide safe and productive instructional training sessions.
  2. Do athletes need to attend all the training sessions? Athletes do not need to attend all sessions; however, we strongly recommend that they do. Families will be charged the full amount for a session even if they elect to only attend for one day of a scheduled session.
