Programs

EDGE RackOur youth programming is designed as age-appropriate training, with a multi sport emphasis and an emphasis on long term athletic development.

Kids:

Training will include introducing body weight movement patterns and progressions, body control and coordination, and building self-confidence through sport and play.
  • The Jump Start program (8-11 years old) will build upon the fundamentals program by continuing to teach fundamental athletic movement patterns while introducing basic safe strength principles. Training will include introducing body weight movement patterns and progressions, body control and coordination, building self-confidence and improving mobility and flexibility.
