Greatings CAMPers, our High School Summer Conditioning Clinic is entering it’s fifth year and is based on 5
critical elements of performance: injury prevention, speed and agility training, strength training and finally conditioning. Nutrition and recovery are also discussed with the athletes to encourage proper behavior while teaching athletes how to take care of their bodies and ensure optimal performance when it counts. This program is unique to CAMP, Building Better Athletes, and has proven to be extremely effective in improving performance, reducing injury and preparing athletes for the upcoming season. Players who show up to tryouts in top physical condition, having worked on the mechanics of speed and agility along with improved strength have a noticeable edge over players who haven’t put in the same effort.
Given the very limited amount of time to prepare a team before games begin, High School coaches must have players who are technically sound and physically ready to play AT TRYOUTS. The 10 days a coach has once tryouts are over and before preseason games begin are most effectively spent working on the tactical elements of putting a team together, not trying to get kids into shape. Coaches rely on athletes to show up ready to play and long term team success depends on players who are technically and physically sound. Teams that can immediately focus on the tactical elements of the game have been shown to do better in pre-season and early season games, as other ill-prepared teams struggle to catch up. Our trainers continue to work with high school teams throughout the season, supporting the athletes and helping them maintain a high level of physical performance, allowing coaches to focus on the game.
Our methodology at CAMP is a foundational progression designed to reduce injury, improve mechanics of movement, increase soccer specific metabolic capacity, and increase power through strength development as it relates to the game. This five week program begins in the last week of June and continues through the end of July, ending the Friday before the week of High School tryouts.
Space is limited to maintain a proper ratio of trainers to athletes so individual performance is improved and kids aren’t lost in a crowd.
