Is this program effective?
Yes! While a lot of jump and speed training is gimmicky (like programs just doing VertiMax), our Jump & Speed Camp has consistently improved vertical jumps over 2″ (on average) in just 6 weeks of training.
How will this help me jump higher and get faster?
We follow a 4-step system that begins with developing essential strength and stability in all planes before moving on to plyometric work and power training. We will focus on progressively developing 1) Technique, 2) Strength, and 3) Power for both jumping and speed/agility, as these are the core components of game-ready explosion. 6 weeks is a good time frame to start seeing improvement, especially for athletes newer to this type of training.
Who is this for?
Our Jump & Speed Camp is for all high school, college, and professional athletes from all sports. 8th graders (going into 9th) must be evaluated prior to admittance to the program. Players who are not physically read for Jump Camp are encouraged to join our Total Performance Camp for this summer.
Is this program safe?
Jump and speed training, when done improperly, can be counterproductive or even dangerous. However, when properly introduced with an emphasis on form, technique, and a comprehensive approach to athletic development (focusing on stability, landing, deceleration, etc., and not just raw strength) the program is safe. Of course, just like with any sports training program, risk exists. But we take careful steps to minimize and avoid the possibility of injury as much as possible.
What will workouts be like?
Workouts will be approximately 1 hour in length. A normal training session will be as similar to the following: After an extensive warmup focusing on movement, flexibility, mobility, and stability work, we will do power/plyometric training. Next, we will move on to a variety of jumping and coordination-dependent explosion drills (sport specific). The workout will finish with strength, core, and medicine ball exercises before a cool down and light stretch.
What is the schedule?
Athletes will train three times weekly for 1 hour Monday/Wednesday/Friday from 1:00-2:00 pm. Camp starts June 13 and runs through July 22 (6 weeks of training). There are 8 spots maximum available. If you need to train at a different time please contact us to discuss your options.
How much does it cost?
The 6-week Jump Camp program costs $300 ($16.67/session) if you sign up before June 6.
Can’t I just train on my own?
Yes you can. But this can difficult or dangerous when it comes to jumping and speed. There are a lot of questionable programs and videos about increasing your vertical jump out there, so be careful. Chances are a self-created workout won’t have near the same effectiveness (and can very possibly be counterproductive) as a professionally designed program. We will show you what to do, how to do it, and the proper order to do it in. Plus, you can take advantage of camaraderie and competition to make it fun and intense.
What if I go on vacation and can’t make every session?
Continuity of training is important for consistent improvement in athletic performance. The more workouts you can make, the better you will be. But we understand that most people have other commitments during the summer as well, from family vacations to camps to tournaments. In this case, we can provide you workout templates via printouts or our app so you can continue training wherever you are. If this is not possible we can work with you to find the best solution.
Who is coaching?
The head coach will be Brandon Wolfram, CSCS. Brandon is a former college and professional basketball player who now trains athletes of all sports and levels in El Paso, TX. He is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist with the NSCA, and a Certified Speed and Agility Specialist with the IYCA.
