Harker’s Sports Conditioning program, which used to be call Eagle Iron, invites students aged 9 -17 to learn how to improve upon all of the fundamental components of sports performance from Ron Forbes, one of the nation’s most successful sports performance specialists. Athletes will be grouped by age, size and skill level. “Conditioning helps players perform more effectively and avoid injury. Students learning to prepare and care for their bodies is a huge part of being successful athletes,” said Kelly Espinosa, director of summer programs.
The key to achieving one’s true potential as an athlete, regardless of sport or skill level, is becoming sound in the fundamental components of sports performance.
- dynamic flexibility
- core strength and stabilization
- speed and agility
- power and first-step acceleration
The more proficient an athlete is at these components, the greater his or her potential as an athlete. Even athletes who compete at the elite level devote more than 60 percent of their time to continued development of these fundamental components of sports performance.
Harker’s Performance Camp is designed to help young athletes of all athletic skill levels learn and develop the fundamental components of sports performance.
The Harker School has been offering extensive summer programs for more than 50 years, and is accredited nationally by the American Camping Association.
