In API's High School Elite Performance classes, athletes will receive total player development training.

API Sports Performance Coaches, will account for developmental age, sport(s) played, medical history, and training history to tailor a training program for to each athlete's specific goals. This program results in a well-trained, injury-resistant athlete competing at his/her maximum potential season after season, year after year.

Each high school athlete's training program is tailored to his/her specific goals reflective of the athlete's age, gender, sport, medical history and training experience. This customization results in a well-trained, injury-resistant athlete competing at his/her maximum potential season after season, year after year.

Every High School Elite Performance class will emphasize:

  • Strength Training
  • Speed Development
  • Directional Change
Strength Training (ST)

The foundation of athletic performance and injury prevention begins with the development of stability, mobility and strength across all joints and throughout an athlete's movement patterns. Areas of emphasis include:

  • Joint-Specific Stability and Mobility
  • Plyometrics
  • Injury Prevention
  • Core Stability and Strength
  • Muscular Strength
  • Training Form and Technique
Speed Development

Speed, a measure of how fast an athlete can sprint short distances, will be trained and enhanced as consistent part of a well-rounded training program. Improvements in stride length, stride frequency, sprinting technique and fast-twitch muscle ratios will enable each athlete to achieve his/her maximum speed potential. Areas of emphasis include:

  • First Step and Acceleration
  • Dynamic Flexibility
  • Sprinting Form and Technique
  • Speed Endurance
Directional Change

Directional Change (Agility) occurs in all planes of motion: side-to-side, forward-to-backward, backward-to-forward, 45°, 90°, 180°, 360° and every ° and direction in between. An athlete trained to make a quick and efficient directional change will improve in all phases of sport performance. Areas of emphasis include:

  • Acceleration and Deceleration
  • Multi-Directional Agility
  • Dynamic Flexibility
  • Foot Speed and Quickness
