What will you be doing:
Track and field is a sport where your body is the apparatus. The stronger you are the better chance you have to win. No matter the amount of technical training, an athletically superior athlete will always have an advantage. Imagine if that superior athlete also had access to advanced technical training. The Mater Dei track and field program has all the resources needed to give every athlete the complete advantage. The summer is when athletes get stronger and more importantly, durable. Our summer training program is not a camp it’s the beginning of the season. The summer program is based around philosophy of Dan Pfaff (a world renowned track and field) who focuses on the body’s neurological response. The summer program also develops the functional strength and dynamic flexibility of each athlete.
Summer workouts cover three important elements: muscular endurance, dynamic flexibility, and proper movement patterns. The foundation to all sports is proper movement patterns, the skill set comes second. The reason for a complete summer program is to build a strong foundation leading into the fall program where athletes progress to higher intensity workouts, cardiovascular conditioning, and event specific movements. Skipping a proper warm-up before competition could potentially lead to injury the same concept goes with skipping the summer program. Our summer program is what gives the Mater Dei track and field program the edge.
