Youth in Fitness Program Details  

Ages 6-9


Mondays-Saturdays

Times after school and all weekend. Day and evening sessions all year long.

We are also implementing "Distance Training" so that kids who need to get fit can work with Youth in Fitness Online.

 

Fun Fitness and Athletic Development

Youth in Fitness will teach movement skills through situations and games using “guided discovery”.

 

We will begin to introduce teamwork and cooperation through relays and simple games. Running, climbing, crawling, skipping and jumping will be emphasized.

 

Coordination, which is made up of balance, spatial awareness, kinesthetic differentiation, rhythm and reactivity will be a major focus. Some dancing will be introduced for fun and to teach rhythm.

 

Ages 10-13

 

Mondays-Saturdays

Times after school and all weekend. Day and evening sessions all year long.


Fun Fitness and Athletic Development

Youth in Fitness will use fun games to integrate callisthenic type movements, including strength technique. This class will stress team work and cooperative games, including basic movement skills. Games will also be utilized as agility drills.

 

Children will learn about how to jump and land correctly as well as how to accelerate and decelerate with correct technique. Advanced/combination coordination development will be stressed through a systematic teaching of biomotor skill. We will use Skill Sets to teach this.

 

Speed, strength and agility will be developed throughout the long term sessions (3 months to 1 year) and children will learn to enjoy play, movement and become better "athletes".

 

Ages 14-18


Mondays-Saturdays

Times after school and all weekend. Day and evening sessions all year long.

 

Speed Teaching and Athletic Development 

These sessions will be more focused on strength work in order to increase speed. We welcome all children who want to participate, regardless if they are “athletic" or not as we believe all children are athletes.

 

The major focus of the speed camp is to help children become faster "athletes" and faster kids.  In achieving this we will focus on all aspects of athletic development, including speed work, strength, flexibility, balance, coordination, agility, rhythm and reactivity.

 

Form and technique will be emphasized in order for kids to reach their full potential over the course of a long term (3 months to 1 year) approach. This is an excellent program to prepare for soccer, basketball,lacrosse, hockey or any other sport.
