If you think of the overall development of an athlete as a pyramid, then imagine the base being the athletic performance training. The wider the base the stronger the foundation of the pyramid. The top level of the pyramid being the skill they need to play the sports. Our program focuses on improving the basics first: movement! Every sport starts and ends with movement. From breaking down the movements of changing direction, speed and power we first teach proper movement. After we ingrain proper movement and body positioning we begin to strengthen our athletes. Injury prevention is always the goal in our strength program, so our strength training is based around becoming stronger to become safer in the sport and to improve the athlete’s performance in that sport!
Youth Athletic Performance coach Ian Marquis being a college athlete himself and working with some of the best athletes in Vermont from Norwich University, Saint Michael’s College and UVM knows what it takes to improve an athlete’s performance, strength and body composition.
