Elite Training LLC, had a great week as part of the Anthony Becht Football Camp at Bonner High School. The weather was great this year, the kids were excited to work hard and learn. With the talented Pro-Football Player Anthony Becht so involved, of course it was successful. I took this opportunity to teach and of course to learn new techniques from my fellow cliniciers, including Anthony Becht.
Elite Training was in charge of the Speed, Agility and Fitness Station. We concentrated on techniques to benefit youth football players. This was a great opportunity to meet new dynamic people to learn and grow from, all in order to be better for my clients.
It meant a lot for Elite to have the opportunity to participate and teach the kids who came out for a great session. We take it serious to act as good neighbors and contribute to future athletes, and this was such a great opportunity for that. We look forward to participating again next year.
Elite Training is part of the DVTA Tennis Camp held at Villanova University for the 3rd year in a row. We work with the campers on speed, agility, strength and conditioning with 3 different grouped level of players (Elite, Intermediate, and Beginner). Each player that we work with has a Sports Performance evaluation and is then placed in the proper group so that they receive the appropriate level of coaching, teaching and intensity to reach their maximum athletic abilities for the individual.
This group is composed of high school tournament level players that are looking to reach a new level of fitness and competitiveness. These players were selected not only based on their evaluation score but their level of participation on the tournament circuit.
This week’s workout is in the final phase of our training plan which is the Performance Phase. In the performance phase we work on more advanced techniques, high pace with short rest periods. We have built a solid base of body weight training, balance and core work that has prepared the group to train at this high level. As expected with this dedicated group the kids have responded great to the increased work load and pace.
10 Interval Sprints on 7 seconds with 5 seconds rest.
4X of a Agility, Core, strength circuit with basic to advanced progression on each set. As always carefully attention was paid to proper technique throughout the workout.
We worked on basic speed techniques that focused on proper starting, stopping and balance. In additioin, agility techniques were transitioned into linear speed sprints then into decelerations.
10 Interval Sprints on 8 seconds with 6 seconds rest.
Ladder drill: Single leg hops into sprint 3 each leg alternating each rep
Core as a cool down.
There are only a few more weeks left in the camp so be sure to check back in for more updates from Tennis camp!
