All athletes can benefit from a properly implemented workout program! It does not matter the sport or age, working out under the guidance of certified strength and conditioning professionals will provide benefits for the youth athlete. Many people fall prey to the myth that lifting weights is dangerous or that certain sports don't require strength and this is simply not true. It is true that each sport and age group bring unique aspects to the table and thus training may be modified accordingly but assuming that you or your athlete cannot benefit from speed and strength training is false!
At ELITE, all of our training is based around the 4 pillars we believe to be at the center of athletic performance. Our programs are built on the pillars of movement, speed, strength, and conditioning. Many programs and coaches understand some of these pillars and may do a great job of implementing at least one of them, but it takes certified professionals to understand the long term athletic development of an athlete and knowing how to train all pillars in an effective manner. No matter what age, time of year (in-season vs. off-season), sport, or skill level, every athlete can benefit from a well-rounded program that has these 4 pillars in mind.
