About Youth Exploration/Sport Athletes

Sport-specific training is playing the sport. But when it comes to what we do, we train the human.

Our main goal, first and foremost, is to create better humans. It’s building robust athletes who can sustain the physical and mental stress of training in their sport. Our role includes basically everything (strength, speed, endurance, mobility, durability, power, etc.) but the actual sport-specific skill itself.

Commitment.

Athletes make a choice to be here–even when other things are thrown on their plate. We adjust session lengths and intensities to match our athletes, but we also hold them to a high standard of accountability that not only maximizes the effect of training but models an important code they can live by in all aspects of their lives.

We believe in discipline.

Discipline is about doing what is required to get better. This starts with prioritization of schedules and creating the time necessary to come into the gym and build their physical strengths. It’s about creating the routine and structure that allows our athletes to be successful. Asking athletes to commit 2-4 hours of additional training per week means giving up free time to focus on the benefit. It’s a huge commitment from the athlete. We promise to meet that passion with our best-in-class training.

Slow cook ‘em.

Excellence takes time. And we focus on developmentally appropriate training and recovery for our athletes. This isn’t just a preference, it’s a commitment to what we feel is a service to their best interest overall. Tricks are for kids. There’s no quick fix here. No increasing your vertical by 37” in 6 -weeks. Development takes time and we set our athletes up for the greatest chance of sporting success. If you’re searching for the hardest program out there that will make your athlete sick, this isn’t it. If, however, you’re looking for a program that is intelligently designed and manages training stress alongside life, social, and academic stress that youth today face, this is your place.

Educate.

We take a mentoring style of coaching. We educate our athletes so they understand not only the skills and drills we are teaching them, but so they can be advocates for their own health, performance, and recovery needs throughout life. It’s important for athletes to understand how to set goals, break them down into steps, and master the process of achieving them.
