Falcon Strength Camp
NCDS Summer Strength and Conditioning Program
Why is strength training important?
Strength training is critical for developing motor skills and coordination, improving sports performance, and decreasing the risk of injury.
Why during the summer?
Summer is the optimal “off season” for most sports and this time frame gives the opportunity for athletes to get stronger, faster, and conditioned for their sport. Without the rigors of school and sports seasons, we can focus on the fundamentals of athletic development: strength, speed, power, endurance, and coordination.
What will camp consist of?
Students will be led through speed and agility training, strength training, and conditioning workouts two days a week through 6 consecutive weeks in the summer. Fitness testing at the beginning and end of the summer will help track progress over the weeks of training, and two additional "on your own" workouts provided to the students will be specific to the sports they play.
