FAST program to focus on agility and speed for high school athletes
SARANAC LAKE – Adirondack Health is offering area high school athletes a Fundamental Agility and Speed Training (FAST) program that focuses on balance, coordination and mobility to enhance agility and speed.
Our team of Certified Athletic Trainers and Strength and Conditioning Specialists designed the program for young athletes to improve performance and reduce the chance of injury during the upcoming sports season.
Athletes learn basic movement skills for improved coordination and body control. Becoming stronger in fundamental movements at a young age creates a sound foundation for future athletic development.
Several different techniques such as strength training, balance, quickness, and agility are used to achieve a higher level of performance. The primary goal of this summer program is to enhance mobility and body control, to improve quickness and agility, and keep area athletes competing at the top of their game for the entire school year.
Two programs are offered: Training for 14-18 year olds (high school freshmen through seniors) and junior training for 11-13 year olds (seventh and eighth graders). This summer’s program runs from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. for 11-13 year olds and from 4:30 to 5:30 for14-18 year olds from June 9 to July 30 in Lake Placid, and athletes interested in participating can contact Dino Angelopoulos at (518) 523-8589 or e-mail dangelopoulos@AdirondackHealth.org.
