Strength & Speed Training

Our sport specific strength and speed training at CSI is divided into 3 groups: Rookies, Competitors, and Champions. We will build and develop their strength, speed, power, and agility safely and progressively based on their foundation and maturation process.

Rookies: (Elementary) is designed as an introduction to strength and agility training. Body weight strength training and local motor movement patterns will be emphasized.

Power 1: (Middle School and younger) is designed to develop the foundations of strength and speed training.. Athletes will learn proper weight lifting techniques, fundamental biomechanics for sprinting, jumping, landing and changing direction.

Power 2: (High School and older) is designed to maximize the athlete’s genetic potential. Athletes will engage in more complex techniques including Olympic lifting, sport specific strength, speed and agility training, and advanced plyometrics.
