Edge School Programming – 2017 DPC Off Season Training for Young Guns (July and August)
Our Young Guns program is designed for athletes 9-12 years of age.
The training program is 2 days/week and incorporates strength, stability, speed/agility, balance/coordination and energy systems training. The Young Guns will be trained in small groups (4-8 students) and spend 60-90 minutes working on expanding their athletic potential each time they are with their coach.
Strength and conditioning for prepubescent athletes has shown to have profound effects on strength, coordination, confidence and bone mineral density development. Due to the sensitivity of the young nervous system, this is the ideal time to beginning training movement patterns and neuromuscular development through exposure to a wide variety to movements and shapes. This approach helps expand the bandwidth of the athlete’s physical vocabulary and diversifies their motor potential.
Help your young athlete find their new normal this summer with the Edge School Programming Young Guns camp!
