Sports Performance Training

Training to perform is essential to improvement.

We are as passionate as you are about optimizing your sports performance. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a high-level athlete, our therapists understand the demands that are placed on an athlete’s body. Through movement screening and physical assessment, the expertise of our therapists and coaches can help you unlock your athletic potential, improve your mobility and movement patterns, and keep you improving while competing injury free.

Strength & Endurance Training

Our strength training program begins by focusing on the athlete’s recovery from in season racing and improving their mobility and movement skills. We assess for symmetry and want to ensure we can improve the level of strength balance form one side of the body to the other. We only stroke in the pool with 1 arm at a time, push our pedals 1 leg at a time and land on 1 foot at a time when running. Lack of symmetry will create the need for compensation by one side over the other and eventually lead to injury. The programming continually evolves through the off season taking athletes through the necessary cycles of training to have them stronger, faster, injury free and ready for their spring summer events.


Speed Training

  • Power
  • Speed
  • Agility

Imperative to optimal performance in ANY sport. Including specific speed and agility training in an athlete’s in and/or off-season training will enhance outcomes and ultimately provide a huge advantage over the competition.

The structured training program conducted by our Certified Speed and Agility coaches is built to enhance:

  • Lateral Acceleration/deceleration
  • Directional and crossover step changes
  • Jumping, hopping, leaping, landing
  • Loading and exploding power

Regardless of court, ice, field or mat, including speed and agility training will reflect to faster, stronger and better performance in sport.

Contact us with questions or to register your athlete or team in our speed and agility programs to complement their training and give them a competitive advantage.


Individual or Team Multi-Sport Training

Want to take next season to a higher level? Our performance training is the perfect program for any athlete from any sport to improve their athletic abilities.

Our Approach:

Our approach will help lower the risk for overuse injuries that are becoming shockingly prevalent at very young ages now. The increase in these types of injuries comes from an early emphasis on sport specific skills which over trains a narrow scope of specific movements patterns and very likely provides too little stimulus for some major muscle groups and too much stress on smaller muscles.

Strength training in for young athletes provides the foundation for dramatic gains in Muscular Strength during adulthood. This foundation then lends itself to more dramatic development of skill related fitness components including power, speed, balance, coordination, agility, and reaction time.

Our multisport performance training is designed with age appropriate training considerations and develops the athletes safely and effectively. Movement screens are conducted by Propel Sports Physical Therapy on each athlete to help identify individual limitations and prescribe mobility programs to use alongside training, preventing injury and ensuring maximum results from performance training

Our programming will be designed through Three Phases of Training:

General Conditioning Phase: Address mobility problems, movement patterns and strength imbalances and improve work capacity.

Strength and Power Phase: Focus on strength training, properly applied for age and sport, then turn strength gains into power and speed. Athletes will be stronger, more powerful, faster, agile and able to jump higher.

Sport Preparation Phase: the final phase focuses on the specific skills related to your sport, mastering sport specific movements with more power, speed and agility.

No matter the sport, our multi-sport performance training program will result in improved performance on the court/ice/field/stage/ or mat next season!

Individual / Team Training Programs:

  • Performance Testing
  • Movement Assessments
  • Performance Program Development
  • Baseline Concussion Testing
  • Coached weekly sessions with player tracking for program evaluation
  • Recovery and Regeneration Programs provided for team coaches upon request

Hockey Program

Next seasons successes start this offseason. Put in the time to develop the athletic skill, strength, speed and power necessary to be an influence on the ice.

Carefully designed training programs individually tailored to the athlete’s current abilities and future goals. These programs are run by Certified Strength and Conditioning coaches with the expertise to take the athlete to the next level.
Programs are phased over time to specifically develop the athlete most effectively. Each individual athlete is assessed by a corrective exercise specialist to determine current movement ability to address any potential problems and improve effectiveness of the program for each athlete.

General Conditioning and Movement Prep Phase: Building stamina and base strength to handle the demands of higher level training. Proper movement patterns, quality and capacity are the focus.

Strength and Muscle Gain Phase: Weight training is primarily used to improve strength in all related movements. Athletes learn to use the strength in applied ways for hockey, as well as progressed safely for age and ability.

Speed and Power Phase: Now that the athlete is moving efficiently, conditioned and has built strength accordingly, the next phase is to translate those gains into speed and power. This is where the hard work pays off just in time for next season to begin.
