The Elkhart Lake Spring Sports Academy presented by Apex Athletic Performance is an annual week long camp with full days of general and sports specific field training with classroom sessions set to launch in Elkhart Lake, WI, from June 11-15th of 2012.  This camp will allow a structured, safe and highly innovative training environment for numerous sports, with many local recreational activities available for non-participating families of the student-athletes/athletes in attendance.  This cutting edge training is something that will give our clients an “extra edge” in the competitive arena. Targeted athletes will primarily consist of grade to high school range student-athletes, but some college athletes, adult recreational and club level sports training will also be invited and included.

Every day will have structured “two-a-day” sessions, with a dynamic warm up, followed by skilled sessions on improving physical requirements for each sport. Video capture programs like Dart Fish will be available to break down and evaluate technique.   Between sessions, class room break out programs (listed below) will educate student-athletes on various training needs that are not covered in traditional camps or in their respective sporting programs. Every session and day will finish with a cool down program.  Objective screening and testing will be seen at the onset of the week with a retest on the last day of the week.   

 

College recruitment possibilities may also be seen as scouts for regional NCAA Division IAA/FCS and smaller colleges/universities are being invited for the Friday afternoon combine. Sports Specific massage therapy evening sessions can also be scheduled by appointment only through affiliated facilities.   The Osthoff will have morning and evening sports-specific Yoga sessions for participants for a nominal extra fee. 

 

 

Classroom sessions will include:

 

Training Methods- The latest in functional training methods will be discussed with “hands on” content

 

The Concerns and Negative Issues of Performance Enhancement Drugs- The illegal and unethical aspects of PED's will be discussed along with the numerous negative side effects. 

 

Concussion Awareness and Recovery- A class that every coach, athlete and parent should attend.  How to discern if a concussion is present, the steps to recovery, possible concussion prevention and the dangers of ignoring the signs will be discussed in depth.  

 

Proper Recovery Methods- Recovery options, recovery nutrition, rest and “active rest” with their benefits will be covered

 

Sports Psychology- Once you get the sports skills, all that separates you from the best of the best is how the mind and body work together.  This underutilized aspect of your game will be covered

 

Visual Acuity Training- Hand-Eye coordination is an often used phrase.  You can train your eyes to help see a pitch coming at you with more accuracy; depth perception can be sharpened, along with peripheral vision and visual reaction training.

 

Periodization of Your Training- You can't train at 100% all the time.  This session will discuss how to set your seasons goals and work backwards from that to ensure you peak athletically at the right time and you don’t suffer burnout.

 

Sports Nutrition- Nutrition helps you with performance, weight control recovery and injury prevention. The ins and outs of sports nutrition will be covered.

 

Heart Rate Monitor Training- This device more than anything else revolutionized training when they were introduced. If you are a serious athlete, you must use a heart rate monitor to get the best out of your
training and performance and take your training to the next level.  We’ll discuss features that some models have, how to find your limits, and how to digest and analyze the resultant data. 

 

Rehabilitation Discussion- Sports will result in injuries.  We’ll discuss some self-diagnosis and home treatment options, along with when to seek medical attention and what to expect with certain areas of care.

 

Weight Room Technique- Weight rooms can be the site of great improvement or season and career ending injuries.  Here is a primer on how to safely use the weight room with the best benefit and what lifts are best for your sport.

 

How to Keep a Training Log- Training logs combine everything discusses prior on heart rate monitor data, training periodization and nutrition allow you to ensure beneficial and safe training programs are followed.  We’ll talk about what aspects you should log, different formats, online options, etc.
