This program is designed to support all soccer players regardless of their soccer career aspiration beyond club soccer. In order to tailor individual needs, the program has two areas: a Youth program (U9-12) and an Elite program (U13-19). VYS and Explosive Performance will be piloting the Youth training program this year, September 2017 through May 2018. Based on results and lessons learned from the pilot, we will look to launch more broadly hopefully in September 2018.
The Youth training integrates basic speed, agility, and functional movements into a fun, educational environment to demonstrate the utility and importance of proper athletic movement. Building on the Youth training, the Elite training extends the elementary foundations of movement to generate a continuum of strength, mobility, and coordination in athletes seeking to develop an athletic foundation that will serve them throughout their life of athletic endeavor.
The athletic performance training will be conducted by Explosive Performance’s professionally trained and certified staff and employ state-of-the-art ideology and technology. Whether it is to keep one less player off the sidelines due to sports-related injury or enable one more individual to fulfill their athletic dreams, the VYS-EP Athletic Performance Program aims to optimize any fitness-related experience through an evidence-based methodology.
