While most kids sat around in the off season these athletes came in and put in Work! Most started their off season programs in September. The young ladies continued their training even during the season. Track is more than just “getting in shape”. Our off season programs work on technique, develop the critical small muscle groups and teach fatigue management so that when the season starts you have a strong foundation on which to compete. Thank you to the athletes and parents who understand and appreciate the value in that. Pleasure working with your and your athletes.
