FAQ - things people ask us about
strength and conditioning for youth.

All of them! Our strength coaches have a range of experiences through participation themselves as well as working with many high performing young athletes in the past. Volleyball, basketball, wrestling, you name it!

Whether or not our coaches have played or worked with athletes who play a specific sport, our knowledge base and network fully supports training young athletes in sports that are new to us. We can design effective programs that are both broad and specific to your sport, whatever meets your needs. 

On top of that, this 6 week program covers the fundamentals of strength training. Whether you’re a competitive swimmer or aspiring to be a pro snowboard, you’ll see some awesome improvements in your strength and confidence in movement. 

Yes! A common misconception is that strength training is dangerous for youth athletes. We assure you, this is not the case, and unfortunately it’s held many kids back from reaching their highest potential. 

Strength training can be dangerous for youth (or anyone really) if:

  • they haven’t learned the proper and safe technique for an exercise
  • they load too heavy or progress too quickly
  • they use equipment incorrectly


In our youth strength and conditioning programs, a strength coach guides participants through a program designed to cover the fundamentals of strength training in a safe environment. With proper supervision and encouragement, you can increase your strength, endurance, sport-specific skills, and confidence!

All of our services are conducted within up-to-date provincial health guidelines. We are continuing to enforce a mask policy for the safety of our clinicians and clients. You can learn more about our Covid-19 policies and procedures by clicking here.
