Our “Raise Your Game” philosophy is more than just the latest research and training principles. We dedicate ourselves to motivating your athletes to not only excel as athletes, but to realize their personal potential and develop the skills they'll need to succeed in life; skills such as discipline, confidence, preparation, self-motivation and leadership. The Role of a Strength and Conditioning Coach The Strength and Conditioning Coach is responsible for improving an athlete's performance and preventing common sports related injuries. By determining the strengths and weaknesses of an athlete, a training program is devised to enhance performance and correct imbalances and deficiencies which may lead to injury. Technical Skill v/s Athletic Skill Participation in sports requires a blend of technical skills and athletic skills. The exact amount of each is dependent on the sport and level of competition. Technical skills, such as throwing for the baseball player or shooting for the lacrosse player, are required explicitly by each sport. Between tournaments, leagues, games and practices, technical skills are, at times, practiced 5-6 days per week for the greater part of the calendar year. Athletic skills such as power, strength, flexibility, balance, speed and agility are required by all sports but their role and level of importance in each sport will vary. Athletic skills training will enhance the execution of technical skills, increase performance and prevent injury. Athletic Skills Development MPF Training Systems focus on the long-term development of each athlete through an emphasis on stability training before power and strength training. Athletes must demonstrate the ability to execute movements that require body weight control, balance and core stability before strength and power training exercises are progressed. Traditional training models used for high school athletes require maximum or near maximum strength and power movements in the early stages of training putting athletes at risk for the development of permanent muscular imbalances, decrease sport performance and potential injury.
