A comprehensive, age specific football training program, providing athletes with a complete football training curriculum. Regimen will include a full strength/conditioning/mobility program (4x/week) and speed and agility training.
Our Strength and Conditioning program will include resistance/weight training designed to directly translate to our athletes strength and power on game day (ex. power cleans, VERTIMAX, squats, dead lifts, bench press etc.). Proper technique and form will be emphasized in all exercises. Our curriculum will also focus on developing athletes muscular and cardiovascular stamina and endurance to give players an edge on their opponents in the 4th quarter. Additionally, we will focus on increasing flexibility and mobility in our athletes and developing strength in these new ranges of motion to decrease risk of injury and increase functional strength, speed and power.
Our Speed and Agility program will use a progression system to develop athletes straight line speed and lateral quickness. This will work hand in hand with our Strength program to translate increased power, strength and range of motion into functional speed and agility movements. This part of our program will feature resistance speed training (sleds/parachutes) and over-speed training (rocket ropes) as well as technique and movement efficiency development.
As with all RAW programs, we will emphasize “competitive fun” in a structured but informal setting. Participants will be measured on progress and encouraged to improve through positive reinforcement. Hard work, discipline, teamwork, respect, sportsmanship, commitment, goal setting, mental toughness, pride & passion will all be emphasized by a wide variety of experienced trainers (CFL, CIS, High School and/or NCCP Certification)
