The HPAT is a program designed to take an athlete and transform them into a High Performance Athlete.
We hear the claims with all of our youth athletes, the desire to make the NHL, to play NCAA Football or Lacrosse, to get to the Olympics… As an 12, 14 or even 18 year old these are great dreams AND they can be nurtured and guided into solid ambitions just waiting to be actualized.
Our Coach to Athlete ratio is 1 : 8 giving the athlete(s) valuable contact with the coach, time learning and discussing concepts, goals and methods of practice.
We focus on teaching professionalism & self monitoring, the importance of consistency, commitment and integrity of both movement and character. All the foundations that take a small town kid from the schoolyard to the College/University stage and beyond.
Our system focuses on key foundational skill development, movement quality and base strength training BEFORE applying speed, acceleration/deceleration and power training. We do this to AVOID and hopefully prevent injury
We prefer a room full of mixed discipline athletes (hockey, soccer, lacrosse, football, dance, etc) because at this grass roots level the physical requirements are the same and an increased respect for all sports is developed. Plus it mixes up the challenges for a healthy dose of FUN.
AFTER seeing the athletes in the first couple of sessions we begin to diversify the programs, and create aspects of the training sessions to be specific or complimentary to the athletes long term goals.
We are in this for the long game with a Long Term Athlete Development focus in place. We value building relationships with our athletes, continuing with them as they grow, age and progress in skillset and sport.
There are no “Magic Pills” or “Quick Fads” to develop strong, highly skilled and desirable athletes. We’re in it for the long haul. Are you?
Bridging the gap of all sports. Cross-training at it’s finest… like the 70s, 80s, 90s, “when we were kids”
NO CLASSES FEBRUARY

Classes include a dynamic warmup, skill development and a workout.
A strong emphasis is placed on technique and safety of the movements before adding weight or intensity. This class serves as a base for kids to create a broad athletic foundation that can carry them into other sports and develop them into healthy, happy, fit children!
Classes have a limited capacity of 8 to ensure each child is being attended to and carefully watched and monitored.
