Get Your Athletes Ready for the Best Season Ever
Football requires an athlete to have a combination of explosive power, speed, and balance to compete at the sports highest level. Typical training methods do not fully address all the aspects required to allow an athlete to compete at their maximum potential. Just because an athlete is strong in the weight room does not imply that he will perform at their best on the field. Even professional football players are tight/weak where they should not be and lacking in other areas including balance.
If an athlete is incomplete physically in any area then they can not train as hard or as long. This may increase their likelihood of injury or compromise their ability to perform at the highest level.
By undergoing the LINK evaluation and speed and agility training offered by The Architech Sports and Physical Therapy staff, an athlete can improve physical requirements not addressed by typical strength and conditioning programs.
Examine and make athlete aware of their posture and balance during agility drills, sprinting, and game situations.
Strengthen weak muscles and lengthen tight muscles which can contribute to improper movement patterns.
Introduce the athlete to a variety of movement drills that can be transformed into improved performance on the football field.
Help the football player understand their own movement abilities and patterns.
