At Whirlwinds Speed Academy we believe that speed and agility are most important skills that athletes must develop to get to the next level. To reach this goal we have implemented the training programs and concepts of Parisi Speed School which has been training youth athletes since 1992. Below are the classes we offer to take athletes from good to GREAT!
Focus: Sets an early athletic foundation
The Jump Start Program is taught by certified Parisi Performance Coaches and utilizes the most up-to-date research to build a young athlete’s physical foundation, improve their coordination and self-esteem. Our signature speed and strength training methods are serious, but all within a fun and friendly environment to ensure the young athlete is engaged and motivated to give 110%.
The Jump Start Program has been proven to enhance:
- Running Technique
- Body Weight Strength
- First Step Quickness
- Injury Prevention
- Weight Loss
- Self Confidence
The Jump Start program is divided into Jump Start I for ages 7 – 10 and Jump Start II for ages 11 – 12. Regardless of the division, our Performance Coaches are specifically trained to motivate and challenge the young athlete, while providing age-level safe and appropriate training techniques and corrections that set a foundation for good life-time habits.
Jump Start is a must for any young person who wants to develop foundational athletic skills that will help them rise above their competition.
Speed is a learned skill, and Whirlwinds Speed Academy is the place to learn!

A Monthly Sports Specific Group Training Module
Ages 10 – 18
Focus: Training for those aspiring to compete at the highest levels, this program provides sport specific training for athletes. (NOT SKILL SPECIFIC)
The Level Up program is a monthly training module for elite athletes who aspire to compete at the highest levels of their sports. Delivered in monthly group sessions that meet 2 times per week, this program identifies the skills that are necessary for an athlete to reach their potential at a specific sport and provides them with the training necessary to help turn “potential abilities” into “actual abilities.”
The program focuses on an athlete’s individual needs for a specific sport and desired improvements. This high-level training aims to develop an athlete’s specific talents, while at the same time turn their weaknesses into strengths. Level Up has a different sports specific focus each month (Volleyball/Basketball, Soccer/Football, Field Hockey/Lacrosse, etc.) and can be added to our and of our sport performance programs (Jump Start, Total Performance and Elite Performance) to provide a comprehensive athlete training program or it can stand on its own to work only on specific needs. Please contact us or stop by the welcome desk to get the Level Up training focus for the upcoming month. Spaces are limited for this training.
Level Up has been proven to help athletes:
- Run their fastest sprint time ever
- Increase vertical jump
- Break their all-time max lift
