Young athletes respond best to simple strategies with regards to motor learning and skill acquisition. That's why the FSP Coaches have structured a program and environment that best matches how young athlete's acquire new skills and strength: no complex loading techniques required! FSP Youth coaches envision themselves as teachers and motivators first, and coaches second. Progressions, load, and volume remain steady throughout the training week and progress in smaller increments as each athlete becomes more proficient in each foundational movement.  As in our other programs, we monitor each athlete's development through skill evaluation and assessment.

FOUNDATIONAL SPEED & AGILITY IN ROSWELL

  • All new athletes must schedule and complete a New Athlete Assessment.
  • Because of the intensity of the program and the need for young bodies to grow and repair, Youth Athletes choose no more than 3 sessions per week. 
  • Recommended sessions per week will vary depending on whether each athlete is in-season or not.
  • A minimum of 2 sessions per week is recommended to achieve best results, regardless of being in- or-out-of season.

Being former athletes themselves, FSP coaches know that training is imperative, but it's only part of the battle. Training and playing sports breaks down tissues in a way that forces the body to adapt to the stress and rebuild. However, the body can't rebuild if it's not receiving adequate rest and sleep. Adolescent bodies need more energy than anyone. The food they eat has to fuel neuromuscular growth due to athletics and training in addition to normal biological growth that all humans go through. Without adequate food intake, the body can't grow or repair properly. Lastly, water is a catalyst for just about every chemical reaction the body undergoes when moving, helps clear unwanted waste, and acts as a coolant to prevent overheating. Inadequate hydration prevents proper recovery and decreases muscle function when you need it the most. That's why each FSP coach promotes smart recovery, nutrition, and hydration strategies.

HOW WE DO IT

It is never too early to train your neuromuscular system to learn new motor programs or develop strength. In the YADP, each athlete will learn and master foundational athletic movement patterns vital to success in sports. Recent research has proved that young elementary and middle school athletes CAN train for strength train and perform scaled speed, agility, and plyometric drills without hindering their growth when performed in a safe environment using proper technique and monitored by degreed and certified professionals. Through carefully applied movements and exercises performed through multiple directions and planes, FSP coaches assist youth athletes in the Roswell/ Alpharetta/ Milton area in taking the first step toward a long athletic career.
