Junior Varsity Group
Groups are limited to 3 or more athletes with a coach:athlete ratio of 1:6 or less.
Athletes Age Range: 11-14
LTAD: Learning to Train
The trainability window for this age group calls for development in: aerobic stamina, speed, athlete skills, and movement patterns. Growth spurts should be monitored for any sudden changes and can last anywhere between 18-24 months. Our main focus with the Junior Varsity Group is to enhance overall athleticism. Athletes at this age are encouraged to play up to 3 sports that refine ambidextrous movements and coordination. It is critical to avoid Early Youth Sport Specialization by staying on a path for long term development as a complete athlete.
- Dynamic Warm Up
- Rhythm and Coordination
- Spatial Awareness (multidirectional movements and plyometrics)
- Power Development and Agility
- Strength Circuit
- Cool Down Stretch
Long Term Goals - Encourage the athlete's ultimate goal as an athlete
Short Term Goals - Focus on development based on current level of athleticism and not competitiveness.
