All of our summer strength and conditioning programming is designed around developing sound fundamental skills in body movement, kinesthetic awareness, strength, and improving cardiovascular endurance. A summer strength and conditioning program is fundamental in injury prevention, and on snow skills acquisition.
Every one of our SSWSC disciplines, from ages 14 and up, include strength and conditioning as part of their summer offering. While the goal is always to improve fitness, the programs are tailored to the sport specific needs of the discipline and appropriate to the age and physical development of the athlete. Athletes will spend time in our newly remodeled DeHaven Strength Center, outside on the workout pad, on turf, and on the trails on and around Howelsen Hill, as well as the surrounding recreational trails.
In addition to the sports specific opportunities offered to the high school and older athletes, we also offer a general fitness program, called FunFit, open to ages 10–13. Most of our disciplines recommend a program of 2 days of FunFit per week for ages 10–11, and 3 days per week for ages 12–13. This program is also offered as a stand alone program for any youth in this age range, whether they are part of a year around SSWSC discipline or not.
