Speed, Agility, Power & Strength Training for Young People of All Abilities

Program Description

SAPS After School & Summer Training is a program designed for individuals 12 and up. Our training philosophy is founded on fostering healthy habits for life while making training fun, appropriately challenging, and positive. We aim to build confidence & self-esteem along with enhancing physical traits.


In the program we focus on building an enjoyment around getting strong, fast, powerful, explosive, flexible, injury resilient and confident. We educate the participants on safe technique, provide nutritional accountability, and we aim to make training enjoyable yet appropriately challenging.

Our program is inclusive and accepting of all individuals from all walks of life, athletic backgrounds, intellectual and physical abilities. Our coaches pour immense energy into getting to know each and every participant so we can help them to the best of our abilities.

Each session has a speed & agility component, strength & power training protocols, and injury prevention exercise methods built into the program. Based on each individual's goals, we adapt training accordingly. 

Training sessions last roughly 1-hour. Groups are capped at 10 kids per session with two coaches present to ensure safety & individualization.
