The Sport-Specific Application Course is designed to equip coaches and athletes with the tools necessary to train for performance in sport.
Participants will spend two days with 10-year NFL veteran John Welbourn and his team of performance coaches as they detail a range of topics including strength development for sport, speed development, programming for known domains, eating for performance and effective assessment tools.
Participants will experience drills that include effective warm-ups, sprinting and agility work, and strength- and power-oriented barbell movements, and attendees should be prepared for a highly charged, supportive environment designed to unlock their potential.
