The Grassroots Fitness approach to training children is by challenging the child’s balance, coordination, strength and flexibility in a manner that guides each individual towards success. Focus will be placed on strength, energy system training and dynamic flexibility in consideration of each child’s developmental stage. Static flexibility training is introduced around 12 years of age, at which point flexibility will slowly start to decline. Programs can be tailored to a specific sport, but only after the basic movement patterns have been learned and demonstrated properly.
