building better athletes

Every Sport Starts with Conca


February 26 – may 17


Our sports performance training philosophy is simple- to provide our athletes with a system that involves, injury reduction techniques, nutrition, age specific strength coaching in a motivating and engaging environment that fosters unmatched results. You can be assured each athlete is going to come away with a life-changing experience.

The process of working with young athletes starts with the parents. Our first priority is to educate parents and address any concerns regarding fitness and sports performance training as it relates specifically to their young athlete. We also address parental roles on how to give their young athlete maximum support at home.

We start establishing a solid foundation of movement and coordination at age 10.The research is overwhelmingly conclusive that when we can establish foundational movement patterns early on, this will reduce the likelihood of overuse injuries occurring later in the athlete’s career.

At CSF, we use a three-step process to build better athletes:

  1. We assess your body in both an orthopedic and sport-specific environment. Our goal is to figure out how you move and what your strengths and weaknesses are so we can create a program custom-built for you.
  2. We build an individualized program that is designed specifically for you. The needs of a soccer and hockey player can vary widely depending on the position you play. We create a program that takes into account your goals as an athlete, while combining them with the specific tools you’ll need to take your athletic performance to the next level.
  3. We get you in the gym and coach you up! The best program on paper does nothing without proper coaching. With a keen eye on the details of every movement, we make sure that you’re getting the absolute most out of every set and every rep.


It all begins with the Functional Movement Screen (FMS). The FMS is a grading and ranking system that documents functional movement patterns which are the foundation of normal function. The FMS identifies limitations and asymmetries. These are the issues that can reduce the effects of training and sport skill practice as well as increase the risk of injury. 

The FMS generates a Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. The scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises that restore mechanically sound movement patterns within each individual. With the FMS, we can identify dangerous movement patterns and evaluate your risk of injury. 

Our training program is all-encompassing and addresses every aspect of becoming a better athlete.



A positive attitude, accountability, and the value of hard work are the life skills you have to be willing to bring with you each and every time you come to the gym! 

We teach young people how to become positive role models, not only in the training center but also in school and out in the community. This is a life skill that they will carry with them long after their sports careers are over.

This leadership philosophy expands into the array of services we provide for our athletes.



Our programs will provide young athletes with the tools they need to take their game to the next level.

Conca Sport & Fitness can make it happen!


In our middle and high school athletic development programs, the applications of strength and conditioning coupled with sports-specific training begin to evolve. Middle school and high school athletes often will train with their respective age groups, but there will be times when athletes will be combined given their experience, maturity, and ability.

There are no shortcuts to becoming a better athlete. Providing young athletes with realistic expectations in this era of instant gratification is not an easy task. They will learn and value that hard work and commitment will pay off in sports and in life


This is the age when many young athletes can gain a distinct advantage in two important areas, Injury reduction, and physical literacy. Athletic development will come with time. Research is supporting that kids who engage in a supervised age-appropriate program are less likely to suffer overuse injuries later in their careers.
