We also recognize that all athletes are not the same and our staff is committed to progressing each athlete in this age group accordingly.

We have successfully designed and implemented programming to meet the demands of all sports, including soccer, baseball, swimming, football, track & Field, and tennis. Our staff will develop a program specific to the demands of the sport while placing emphasis on injury prevention, improved muscular development and coordination, strength and power development, improving speed and agility.

“Our preseason strength and conditioning program with Elite FT could not have gone any better. My players are already seeing the results from their hard work pay off on the field. We look faster and stronger on the ball this year more than we have in my previous two years with Alton High School. “Jeff Hayes
“Our 2016 fall season was quite successful. This fall we competed in 21 games in a frame of 10 weeks! We also practiced an average of 3 days a week as well, so it was quite a toll on the bodies of our student athletes. However, I feel like we were more prepared physically than we had been in previous years. One of the main reasons we were able to hold up with the physical demands of the 10 week period was our pre-season practices. In the summer leading up to the fall season, Elite FT conducted 4 week and 8 week strength & conditioning sessions for our players and physically most of the players were better prepared to deal with the rigorous demands of the high school season. Coach Trent and his staff did a wonderful job of preparing the boys for the season.”Jason Turkington
“The Elite FT Training Center & Staff gave my girls the strength and confidence of the highest level coming into the girls soccer season. The players fitness levels during the first week of the season was the best myself and my staff have seen in the past 6 years at CHS. The CHS Soccer Program has experienced quicker recovery times than ever before due to the intense workout sessions provided by the Elite FT Training Staff and Gym!”Clay Smith
“While our soccer team has been successful, we are always looking at ways in which to improve our program. Two years ago, my booster club president reviewed additional offerings to our athletes and tabled the idea of utilizing Elite FT for a fitness and flexibility program. Immediately, I realized the potential benefits to our soccer players. The idea is to make our athletes stronger, more flexible, and increase their overall fitness and endurance. To that point, I feel that the program can increase a players confidence and makes inroads into injury prevention. This will be our third year with Elite FT and we hope to keep this program available to our athlete for many future years.”Mark Heiderscheid
