Youth Athlete Small Group Training

Our program offers a specialized developmental physical preparation training program tailored to young athletes ages 10-14.

The curriculum is meticulously designed to prioritize proper patterning and exercise selection within the weight room, emphasizing the significance of effective and efficient movement mechanics in relation to speed and agility training. Additionally, our program focuses on imparting a foundational understanding of joint and body movements.

The combination of increased neuromuscular coordination, improvement in body composition, competence and confidence in the weight room, and the ability to move faster, more powerfully, and efficiently all results in a decreased risk of injury and in improved performance in competition.

Your athlete CAN:

At Ohio Athletic Performance, our sole focus is on sport performance training. We use scientific strength training methods to enhance key athletic skills like speed, agility, power, and strength. Our sports performance trainers understand that strength is fundamental to all sports skills.

Our program not only strengthens young athletes but also helps them play sports safely for a longer time. We reduce injury risks by strengthening muscles and stabilizing joints. We achieve this using the Functional Range System (FRS), which helps us design training based on the body’s internal mechanics to enhance movement and running techniques.

Our method is key in teaching athletes how to speed up, slow down, and change direction effectively. This improves their overall speed and agility.

Strength & Conditioning

Improving the base of your fitness to grow stronger and more durable.

Sport Performance training days takes place in our weight room and focuses on exercise and skill development aimed at optimizing an athlete’s performance in their specific sport through a combination of strength training and conditioning.

Speed & Agility

Youth speed and agility training, focused on teaching how to manage force and improve speed and agility.

Speed and Agility training days take place on our turf field and focuses on teaching and drilling proper execution of acceleration, deceleration, and change of direction mechanics. 


Using the FRC model, we coach youth athletes to understand how their body and joints are intended to move. 

Mobility training takes place at every training session and are designed to reduce injury risk by developing joints that can withstand the unknown factors of competitive sport

Performance Testing

As a part of our program, youth athletes have the opportunity to undergo performance tests on the 40-yard dash and the vertical jump.

The 40-yard dash is a key speed test, timing how fast an athlete runs the distance. It’s important in many sports, focusing on not just speed but also quick acceleration, a vital part of sports skills.

Our vertical jump test measures an athlete’s explosive strength. It shows how well they can jump from a standstill, a key skill in many sports. This test reveals their strength and power, greatly affecting their overall athletic performance.

Progress Reports

We offer quarterly progress reports to keep parents updated on their athlete’s development. These reports show improvements in strength and achievements in our training program. They help parents stay involved and also let athletes see and understand their own growth over time.

You need the OAP training even more.

It’s designed to maintain or improve specific physical qualities essential for health and success in sports. As you gain more experience in sports (“mileage on the car”), it becomes crucial to take care of your body. If your training isn’t aligned with your performance goals, you need to either adjust your goals or start investing in your body more effectively.

In sports, repetitive practice and competition can strain your connective tissues and joints, leading to most injuries. If you’re playing multiple sports and skipping training due to lack of time, you miss the chance to assess and address these issues early on.

Training during the season, with the right intensity and frequency, is essential. It helps young athletes maintain their hard-earned strength, speed, and other qualities. Our program also focuses on improving joint function, speed mechanics, recovery methods, and muscle mass retention, reducing vulnerabilities in their physical performance.

Youth speed & agility training takes place on our turf field, and athletes are encourage to bring cleats if available (no metal spikes). These training days focus on teaching and drilling proper execution of acceleration, deceleration, and change of direction mechanics.  

Youth sport performance training takes place in our weight room and focuses on exercise and skill development aimed at optimizing an athlete’s performance in their sport through a combination of youth strength training and conditioning.

All sessions expire at the end of the billing period and new sessions are added to the athlete account on the billing date. If you know ahead of time you won’t be able to attend, you are able to freeze your account by emailing

The in-season training program is specifically designed to meet the needs of the in-season athlete and allows for once weekly training sessions and you will see the most benefit from attending weekly, however any unused sessions roll over to another week within the same billing period. 

We provide progress reports every three months – in March, June, September, and December – to keep parents updated on their athlete’s training progress. These reports show improvements in strength and other achievements, helping both parents and athletes track progress.

The last Monday of every month, we test youth athletes on our turf field. They do the 40-yard dash, timed by a laser, to measure speed and acceleration. They also do a vertical jump test to check their explosive power and strength. These tests help us understand their overall sports performance.
