All athletes entering the Trench Elite will be evaluated by our coaches and placed depending on their skill level and school schedule requirements. Each level provides an intense challenge that will force athletes to adapt and overcome or quit. There is no “getting by.”
Before entering any program, all our athletes must complete the Ramp Up protocol regardless of physical maturity or athletic ability. During these sessions, the athlete will work privately with a coach to learn form, technique, and how to translate weight room strength training to on-field production. Evidently, proper execution is paramount, which is our primary focus. But we also use this time to focus on mind-muscle connectivity, breaking down muscle activation during each movement. Upon completion of the Rampup, the athlete will have learned how to master movement patterns, proper weight room etiquette, coaching cues, and proper form and technique. They will then be ready to join our group programs.
Your performance in Ramp Up will determine your placement in a Trench Elite or Young Dawgs Group. These groups are categorized by skill level and mental acuity.
As the athlete advances in their performance execution, he will be able to advance to the next group level. Athletes learn to push their abilities according to their skill level by combining hypertrophy and power production training. The result is a quickly advancing athlete with the ability to move weight in an explosive fashion that directly translates to speed and power.
The Trench Academy is a year-round football training program that caters exclusively to the football athlete and his schedule. When our athletes go in-season, so does our training protocol. This in-season protocol is crucial to the performance and health of the athlete. Not only do we want to preserve all the hard work they put in during the off-season, but we want to prevent in-season injuries and keep them on the field (instead of on the sidelines). There are no redshirts in Highschool so every snap counts.
The Trench Academy prepares athletes to reach their in-season goals by working hard during the off-season. Elite athletes know that off-season training/recovery is vital to consistently strong performances. Exercises oriented towards in-season preparation are as essential to playing well on game day as the drills you run in practice. This off-season protocol is crucial for preparing athletes to dominate on the field."
