Youth Sports Training with Weights
At what age should a young person begin lifting weights or using Kettlebells?

Fitness For Kids Long Term Success
Remember one of the critical pillars of the IYCA –
Don’t Train…. Teach!!

Discovery (Ages 6 – 9) – Creating A Champion
The purpose of this phase is to introduce participants to a wide spectrum on non-specific exercise stimulus that aids in the natural development of coordination habits.
Coaches utilize the principle of Outcome-Based Coaching which allows young participants to learn the physical skills of exercise through an experimental and self-discovery based means.
