EXCEL announces a new Sports Performance Training (SPT) program that is a volleyball-specific training for athletes of all ages.  Training will take place before or after clinics.  EXCEL's Fitness Program Director, Mason Duhon, will focus on functional training using movements and muscles during the workouts that the athletes will use during volleyball play.  Our program will develop athletes through resistance, plyometrics, speed-ladder and body-weight training. Athletes will be instructed in proper mechanics to optimize muscle use for maximum results and injury prevention.

Excel's aim is to increase athletes vertical jump, agility and hitting power with a large emphasis on stretching and injury prevention. With a combination of strength training, plyometrics, rehabilitation exercises and stretching, we have developed a comprehensive training program for volleyball athletes looking to take their game to the next level.  Our goal is to produce well rounded, strong and resilient athletes. We teach healthy habits on and off the court, thus prolonging an athlete’s volleyball career.

Areas of Athletic Development
-Vertical Jump (Standing&Approach)
-Explosiveness
-Core Strength
-Fast Twitch Muscle
-First-Step Quickness and Agility

Program starts in October!
