The goals of CVA's High Performance (HP) program are:
1.) Teach athletes the importance of balancing all aspects of health and wellness. The HP director works with parents, students, coaches, athletic trainers, nurses, teachers, chefs, and administrators to attain this goal.
2.) Guide athletes in attaining their highest athletic potential based on their current maturity, growth and development through dryland training and education. Attaining these goals will lead to student-athletes who will excel, not only in sports, but in any of life’s arenas.
Although dryland goals are different for varying stages of athletes (beginner - elite), in order to attain their personal best, dryland training is a key component for athletes at any level. The base established in early dryland efforts provides the foundation needed to progress to the highest levels of competition.
Our program is designed to ensure that this progression happens.
Throughout the year dryland programming will focus on different aspects of physical health:
- Summer - Cardiovascular & Muscular Endurance
- Late Summer through Fall - Strength, Power and Skill Components
- Winter - Maintenance and Recovery
- Spring - Assessment, reevaluation, and education
Each year specific educational topics/projects will be chosen as a focus. Generally these topics will include:
- Daily Wellness Questions
- Managing Controllable Factors
- Training Log Commitment
