The Premium Volleyball Development Program will expose participants to testing using tools and methods that national-level and professional athletes are measured by. Initially, athletes’ movements will be evaluated using the Functional Movement Screen (FMS) and the Y Balance Test which are both standard tools used by the NHL, NFL, MLB and NBA. Athletes in all other age groups will be introduced to the FMS and Y Balance Test over the course of the program.
Performance will be evaluated using tests that prove where the athletes are currently and we will show them where they compare against appropriate standards. This 10 week program will give athletes the time they need to move better, be stronger and faster than ever before and ready for their upcoming season.
Emphasis during training sessions will be placed on the vertical (including proper landing mechanics), rotational power and ground recovery. Program will run twice per week during July and August and the first part of September.
As a result of numerous requests, RHP Training Centre will be adding 1 hour of skill development each week on Thursday evenings from 5:00pm to 6:00pm for those enrolled in the program. These sessions will focus on ball control and movement.
In addition, participants in the Premium Athletic Development Program can access the Athletic Therapist, Certified Nutritionist as well as the Sports Psychologist that are available at RHP Training Centre.
