April showers have passed, which means that May flowers are in full bloom, the days are getting longer, and many teams are entering their off-seasons. For the Speed Mechanics coaches, May also means that summer training has arrived!
Why train over the summer? Without regular practices or games, it can be easy for young athletes to lose their competitive edge. Summer training ensures that you not only stay in peak physical performance, it also gives you an opportunity to focus your attention on identifying and improving areas of weakness and strength. Then, in the fall, you’re still in top shape, often leaps and bounds ahead of your teammates and opponents.
If you’re not already set up for summer training, check out our AP program or come for a free session as a new member.
