In the Strength & Speed course, athletes of any sports background master proper running technique with foot-speed and agility exercises. Sessions employ plyometrics and intervals to summon greater core and limb strength.
During the Little Juniors soccer program, parents and tots frolic up and down a field, working on concepts such as teamwork and listening to directions while playing games. For youngsters aged 4–5, teams face off against each other in minor scrimmages, mastering dribbling skills and scoring goals to boost confidence. The Big Juniors sessions continue to play small side games while coaches use training to introduce important, sport-specific foot skills for managing the ball. The program for 8- to 14-year-olds leads kids and teens into full-on mastery with fervor, as they learn one-on-one moves to snatch the competitive edge in on-field matchups.
When Justin McMillian left the operating room after the second ACL surgery on his right knee, he wondered if his dream of becoming an all-American soccer player would become a reality. It took the inventive scheduling and can-do attitude of his childhood friend, Jared “Iggy” Embick, to pull through. The duo managed to launch McMillian not only to the all-American team, but to a professional soccer career. They never forgot that battle to recover from injury, and how smart training healed, conditioned, and inspired Justin. The same deliberate, motivational focus that took him from the sickbed to the soccer field inform the training programs at Elite FT.
All training sessions take place over six weeks, with 10 or more students meeting once a week for one hour. Coaches might call for rigorous plyometric conditioning exercises or teach sport-specific skills to soccer, football, and baseball players. Through teaching skills and conditioning bodies, the coaches aim to create confident, disciplined, and elite athletes whose skills transfer to their work ethic and other important areas of life, such as schoolwork or winning a game of Horse to snatch a promotion at work.
“My nephew really enjoyed his first meeting there and said that he learned a lot!”
“It's a great program to introduce your child to soccer. It focuses on skills, so your child will get a lot of time handling the ball.”
