PERFORMANCE CAMP

A new era of athletes - Science and Sports

Youth Athletic Performance Development Based on Science at NASA Starport

Program Goals -To develop athletic ability by understanding baseline levels and using sports science and evidence based sports performance training to elicit the maximum potential of a youth athlete. Our program, taught and designed by professional coaches with Olympic and professional sport experience will teach proper biomechanics to improve speed, agility, strength and power. Laser timing, force plates, accelerometers, body composition analysis and other measurable will be taken, because if we can measure it - we can improve it.

Each two-hour session will consist of an hour on the field training the most efficient movement patterns as well as an hour in the weight room developing strength and mobility to reduce the risk of injury from the repetitive nature of sports.
