• Step 1: Evaluation •
Until an athlete knows his or her current level of ability, it is impossible to realistically create goals and monitor progress. The Performance Evaluation is critical to every athlete in our program for four main reasons:
» Assesses the current level of an athlete’s ability.
» Allows for proper grouping of the athlete in our program.
» Allows for the proper exercise prescription to be developed.
» Allows us to record and monitor progress while in our program.
This aspect of our program is what we consider the most important. Without understanding individual strengths and weaknesses of you or your athlete, you cannot be sure that you are working on the right needs in training.
The Performance Evaluation is a mandatory event for every athlete that enters the Parisi youth training Program. During the Evaluation, the athletes will be taught our signature dynamic warmup, be examined during our Running Analysis Procedures, and tested in a battery of physical speed and strength tests. After the evaluation, every athlete and parent will meet individually with the Head Evaluator and review the results. At that time, the parent and athlete have the correct information to select the appropriate program to fit his or her needs.
• Jump Start •
Science has proven that ages 7 to 11 are the most critical years in a child’s life for motor skill development. Jump Start utilizes the most up to date research in a fun and friendly environment to build your young athlete’s physical foundation, improve coordination and self esteem through our signature speed and strength training methods.
Sessions are 1 hour long and have a maximum of ten athletes to one Parisi Performance Enhancement Specialist. Sessions are offered every day,from 4pm-9pm. Training during these sessions focuses on speed development, body weight strength training, endurance and flexibility.
Every athlete in the Jump Start program must first go through our mandatory comprehensive evaluation to first assess strengths and weaknesses and then group your athlete accordingly. After completing the initial evaluation, your athlete will be placed in one of two groups based upon performance level and age.
Fast, Fit, Fun™
Improving fundamental athletic skills & self esteem for young athletes, aged 7 to 11.
Jump Start Ι – Athletes placed at this level require basic motor skill development and conditioning. This is traditionally the youngest group in our program; participants in this group range in age from 7 through 9 years old.
Jump Start ΙΙ – Athletes placed at this level still need to continue to improve their basic motor development. But they also are demonstrating the required technique and coachability for this level. The typical age range for this group is 9 through 11 years of age.
Jump Start is a must for any young athlete who wants to develop foundational athletic skills to help get a jump start on the competition and feel better at the same time.
• Total Performance •
Develop & enhance athletic performance for athletes aged 12 to 18. Many experts view the ages of 12 to 18 as the most ideal ages for developing speed, strength and power over an athlete’s entire lifetime. This program was developed using cutting-edge techniques to produce maximal improvements in athletic performance.
Every athlete in the program must first complete our mandatory comprehensive evaluation to assess their strengths and weaknesses. After completing the initial evaluation, the athlete will be placed in one of two groups depending upon performance level and age.
Total Performance Ι – Athletes placed in this group are able to perform the basic requirements of our program and are at the beginner level for strength training. The typical age range for this group is 12-14.
Total Performance ΙΙ – Athletes placed in this group have a number of years of training experience and can now tolerate more intense levels of training. The typical age range for this group is 14-18.
