Ignite Youth Speed School
Speed is a tool in sports that is used on both offense and defense. Speed can dominate the game at any level; explosive muscles are essential to the game. Our dynamic Ignite training program will get you excited about working out and developing sport-specific muscles and movements. Using the right combination of speed and agility and the use of core training, plyometrics, and pre-hab exercises, we will condition your body to react to the fast-paced nature of any game. Sixty minutes of pure Ignite intensity-building exercises for the complete athlete. Ages 7-18.

Our program has 4 main components:
Evaluation: Every athlete begins our program with a mandatory evaluation. This is used to assess current ability, identify strengths and weaknesses, and group athletes accordingly. Using this information, every athlete selects a program that is designed to fit his or her needs. This program will be some combination of speed, strength or flexibility.
2. Speed Training: Our speed methods focus on improving an athlete's technique and conditioning. This leads to sprint efficiency and increased speed.
3. Strength Training: Strengthening the muscles used in sprinting helps an athlete cover more ground per stride and be less injury prone. This education will also allow an athlete to properly train on his or her own when the program is completed.
4. Agility Training: The ability to change the body's position efficiently, and requires the integration of isolated movement skills using a combination of balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength, endurance and stamina. Flexibility: Increase an athletes range of motion will allow for a longer, more efficient stride when sprinting, and decrease the chance of injury. This leads to a faster, safer athlete.

Evaluation All members go thru this Evaluation first to determine which Level best suits their needs—each Evaluation will include the following assessments:
Speed: The speed component is measured at 30 and/or 60 yards. A short burst of linear speed is a differentiator in every sport. This test measures linear acceleration, which is the ability to transition from a standing start to top speed. To measure sprinting acceleration, an athlete runs down a track and a trainer records his/her time.
Vertical Jump: This test contains a vertical jump; the measurement is about how high you jump. To measure the vertical jump, an athlete must bend down into a balanced crouch with their arms behind them to help propel them upwards and then they swiftly jump out into the air.
Agility Shuttle: The agility shuttle measures the ability of an athlete to maintain body control through multiple rapid changes of direction at high speeds, your side-to-side quickness and agility. To measure the agility shuttle, an athlete must run 5 yards, touch a marker, proceed to run 10 yards in the opposite direction and touch a second marker, and finally, switch direction and run another 5 yards back to the starting point.
40-yard dash and 20 Meter Sprint: Sprint or speed tests can be performed over varying distances, depending on the factors being tested and the relevance to the sport. The aim of this test is to determine acceleration, and also a reliable indicator of speed, agility and quickness.
Rotational Power ball Throw: This test measures core strength and total body power. For baseball players, it simulates the rotational core movement common to the sport.
