Our GRIT Off-Season Training programs are apart of our Year-Round High Performance Programs. During the GRIT Program months, the coaches help to ramp up the athletes training to push for the upcoming spring or fall seasons. GRIT is broken up by either Summer or Winter; the Summer GRIT portion of the training coaches are able to have more time with the athletes and are three hour training sessions. While Winter GRIT we are more constricted on time so we have the normal two hours with the athletes. During the first month of the programs, the coaches collect metrics of the athletes to get a baseline coming into the off-season program these same metrics will also be assessed during the last month of the respective program to track their progress.
Consists of both sports performance training and baseball & softball specific skill and technique training. Athletes in the combined GRIT program will begin with 90 minutes of sport-specific skill & technique work with Coach Nick Daley to help then train for 90 minutes in the Sports Performance sessions with Coach Chris Stratis. Athletes are given a 30 minute break between the two sessions so that they can refuel and recover.
Winter GRIT is during the months of November-January and is perfect for athletes prepping for their sping season and wanting to up the intensity of their training. The classes consist of 60 minutes of sports performance training such as strength, speed, agility and acceleration training followed by 60 minutes of baseball/softball skill specific work i.e. pitching, fielding, throwing mechanics, and arm care.
Our Raw GRIT Programs consist of Sports Performance training each day with Champion Sports Performance coach, Chris Stratis and runs Monday through Thursday. The training sessions will rotate through different areas of focus, ensuring that the athletes consistently train to build strength, speed, coordination, athleticism, agility, reaction, and resistance to injury. The athletes in the Raw GRIT Programs will benefit from training alongside like-minded athletes who are driven to work hard and enjoy the process of improving.
