Jump and Agility Training – This 60-minutes, twice a week for a month session. It will focus on increasing the athlete’s ability to transmit force into the ground to improve vertical jump height. We will also focus on absorbing force through multiple movement patterns to improve agility. In these sessions the athlete will spend time learning how to jump and move more efficiently. We will look at each athletes functional movement screen and work to address the athletes asymmetries to make them more efficient. This efficiency will also aid in injury prevention to the hips, knees and ankles. We will use a variety of tools including resistance training, plyometric and ballistic exercises.
