Train the Brain, a conditioning class designed to help football players transition from high school competition to the collegiate level and from middle school to high school games, will be offered at the Tacoma Soccer Center starting June 14th.
The class will challenge athletes mentally and will focus on instilling a positive mental attitude that will affect both workouts and game performances. Sport-specific and general conditioning drills combined with distinct commands will challenge the athlete to think first and move and react in an efficient manner.
The six-week program will be held on Saturdays from 5:30-6:30pm for ages 13-18 and for ages 9-12 from 6:30-7:30pm. Cost is $25 per session with a pre-paid discount plan also available.
At the conclusion of the program players will have been introduced to drills designed to increase core strength, stability, flexibility, proper jumping and landing techniques used in plyometric drills, balance, and injury prevention.
Chad Blau, a PLU graduate with a degree in exercise science and extensive experience as a strength and conditioning coach, will teach the class. For more information call 1-888-584-9233 or register online at www.PlayIYFL.com.
