How I Will Measure the Improvement and Adaptation in Your Athlete
Each athlete is screened and evaluated for the purpose of gathering baseline numbers as well as to determine any movement weaknesses and to gauge their overall athletic capabilities.
This evaluation consists of assessing athlete movement ability as well as different distances of sprints, change of direction drills, and horizontal and vertical explosive power. This is done so that I can design an appropriate training program that will correct and develop any initial deficiencies, and provide for you a metric on how your athlete is progressing. Also, your athlete will be able to see firsthand how their performance is improving.
Furthermore, I take seriously the development of my athletes' mental makeup. In a culture where much is expected and little is earned, I stress the importance of respecting the process--the process of working hard to achieve a long-term goal--which unquestionably requires disciplined, tough, coachable athletes.
My athletes will come to understand that while making excuses is the easy way out, they should and must strive to fight the cancer of accepting mediocrity and allowing for complacency in both the classroom and on the athletic court/field.
My Primary Goals in Working with Your Athlete
Improve Athletic Performance
Teach, Guide, and Motivate Effectively
Instill a Relentless Work Ethic
Results of Training
Vertical Jump Training Results
Note: Many athletes that I work with train once per week, and my athletes have seen great results in their athletic performance training once per week. However, I would recommend training at least twice per week in order to increase the likelihood of increased athletic performance, especially as they get into the later middle school years and even more so as they enter high school.
