Peak Performance Philosophy: Player Centered. Performance Driven.

Athleticism is a crucial component of the modern game. Taking into account each player’s uniqueness, for example training history, body composition, etc., Peak Performance is committed to take every player towards realizing performance potential. This is achieved by creating a competitive training environment with quality, consistent and relevant training hours. Peak Performance training focus will be on developing position specific game skills and understanding and continued improvements made to the different facets of speed, functional strength, explosive power, cognitive speed, joint and muscle flexibility & efficient movement mechanics. Peak Performance will offer player development programs throughout the year that are in line with Academy & ECNL performance training and the latest research related to optimal player development. At various points throughout the year, programs will be offered to different players in specific divisions of play. Keep an eye out for a program that meets your player's needs and abilities throughout the year since programs tend to coincide with the seasons.
