It’s nearly summer which means vacations, cookouts, and the beach. It also means our Elite Sports Performance program is back – this is one of the few times during the year that students actually have a chance to work on maximizing their athletic abilities!
The emphasis of this program will be on the following:
– Speed and Agility – Proper Running Mechanics
– Power Development – Flexibility and Injury Prevention
– Plyometrics (jump training) – Strength Training Basics
World renown strength coach Mike Boyle made this comment recently: “Between 9th and 12th grades, an athletes skill level in their respective sports will only improve around 10%.” That’s not much when you think about it!
“What can improve significantly is their strength, speed, and power with the proper training – which will improve their sport skills exponentially”.
Maria Blazejewski will be coaching again this summer. This is her 5th year with us and she has been an intern strength coach at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas as well. Maria plays professional basketball in Europe and helps with a number of basketball clinics and camps throughout Northern Michigan.

We will push you to become the best athlete you can be!
