Elite Performance

Ages 15 – 18

Our Elite Performance training program for high school athletes brings intensity through advanced power lifting, speed drills, and plyometrics. Our ultimate goal is to help each of our athletes improve self-confidence and achieve his or her peak athletic performance.

During the first visit to KCSS, each high school athlete undergoes an intensive two-part evaluation, which includes both a structural assessment and an athletic assessment. Based on the results, KCSS coaches are able to determine exactly what individualized exercises and drills each athlete needs prescribed in order to be successful within and outside the KCSS walls. Assessments are done every month to re-evaluate and change exercise programs accordingly.

The certified coaches at KCSS recommend that Elite Performance athletes train 3 times per week. If you have questions about the volume and intensity of the programs, please contact the KCSS coaches for more information.
