Creating a well-rounded athlete prepared to thrive within all the sports.
The most important leap in athletic development takes place from ages 5-13. Our middle school training ages begin from 9-13. Training will provide young athlete with a strong foundation that they can build on throughout their athletic careers. We will maximize each training window of opportunity by targeting long term athletic development strategies that prove effective not for a few weeks, but for years to come. Common questions we get asked are, should our 9 year old lift? How much is too much? These are a few questions and concerns we get from parents and our goal is to come along side parents to help lead their athletes on a long term athletic development approach.
Gritworks training programs for middle school athletes is designed to increase their overall athleticism with improved coordination, speed, balance and strength so that they'll be able to excel in all of the sports they enjoy. Youth athletes have complex, distinct physiological characteristics that must be taken into account. We are very careful about too much sport specific skill development without broad athletic development first
