Offseason Junior High and High School Strength and Speed Programs

There’s not an athlete in the world that cannot benefit from strength and speed training. All you have to do is peruse the profiles of various high school, college, and professional athletes, and you’ll quickly see a pattern. The athletes at the top of the pyramid are bigger, faster, and stronger. When it comes to sports, strength is king because it leads to athletes jumping higher, running faster, throwing harder, and getting injured less.

Former Gillespie standout and current trainer Chris Halpin will lead this offseason’s strength and conditioning program.

When: Starts March 6th, 1st session is 6-7pm and second session is 7-8pm. Sessions will be on Monday and Wednesday evenings.
