"You not only impressed upon the parents, the huge
role that nutrition has on competition but also on the boys. The refs,
scorers and other parents asked after the semi-final match, "what did you
feed those boys? - they sure have a lot of energy!!"

Summer Conditioning Program for Competitive Athletes

What is FMS?
The Functional Movement Screen (FMS) is a ranking and grading system that assesses movement patterns that are key to normal function movements.
The FMS is based on 7 key functional movement patterns (squat, hurdle step, lunge, shoulder mobility, leg raise, push-up and rotational stability).
By analyzing these movement patterns, the trainer is able to identify functional limitations and asymmetries in the athlete. These are issues that can reduce the effects of physical training and sport skill development, but most importantly they can distort body awareness that can lead the athlete to overuse injuries and long term pain.
Spaces in each age group are filling up fast.

Our Coaches Can Help Make Your Athletic Goals Reality!
Nutrition, Conditioning, Mental Preparation, & Video Analysis
With the ever increasing requirements of the competitive athlete to fully develop their potential, the volunteer coach cannot effectively deliver all necessary technical and tactical elements in addition to educating their athletes in the area of Nutrition, Conditioning, and Mental Training.
Our Mental Skills Coaches, Sports Dieticians, Athletic Conditioning Coaches and Video support Coaches will work with your current coaches to develop team ancillary training that can be delivered before, during or after practices. This training can range in length from 30-minutes to 90-minutes and will be customized to meet each teams requirements.
The Ancillary Coaches will work with coaches to determine the greatest needs of their team and develop a strategy to address the needs of athletes that fit within the seasonal plan.

Interesting Fact of the Week
Recent CHMS accelerometer data indicate that only an average of 7% of young people attain the recommended level of 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity per day, with 9% of boys and 4% girls engaging in the recommended 60 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous physical activity on at least 6 days per week.
