Dear Parents and Young Athletes: (Ages 13-18)

The Air Force Academy Strength and Conditioning department would like to encourage athletes from all sports to come and train in our state-of-the-art facility. The Falcon Athletic Center (FAC) weight room is 23,000 square feet and is considered to be one of the finest strength and conditioning facilities in the country.

Lifting sessions will be conducted among our 40 multi-station platforms to include a variety of structural and dynamic total body lifts. Running sessions will take place on the turf 4-lane 65-yard track with built in over speed ramp within the FAC weight room. Human Performance Laboratory will provide your young athlete(s) cutting-edge sport vision training to improve reactive skills. Campers will also gain nutrition fueling strategies to improve performance in training and competition.

This 3 day camp is designed to teach young athletes the fundamentals of weight training and the performance movement skills necessary to improve athletic potential. By enrolling your son and/or daughter into our performance camp, not only will he/she gain a competitive edge over future competition, but they will learn the proper techniques required to help prevent both training and sport related injuries. This camp is conducted in a fun, group environment that fosters teamwork and leadership qualities. Listed below are the intended educational and physical benefits that will be acquired by your young athlete:

  • Fundamentals of agility, jumping, speed, and weight training techniques
  • Sports performance vision training
  • Sports nutrition fueling tactics
  • Value of athletics, leadership, and teamwork

Learn directly from the Air Force Academy Strength and Conditioning Staff; certified and nationally recognized Strength and Conditioning coaches that train the Air Force Academy varsity athletes. This camp is designed to insure a good camper/coach ratio; thus, the camp has limited enrollment on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Workout gear should include:
Court or running shoe, t-shirt and shorts.

Through our experience, knowledge and facilities, the Air Force Strength and Conditioning staff can help your young athlete reach his/her potential! Thank you for considering our camp. We are confident it will be a fulfilling and fun experience and will contribute to your child's future success in athletics.
