Football is an incredibly popular sport to play in the United States from the youth and high school levels through the collegiate and professional ranks. With the physical demands associated with this passionate game, each athlete should prepare their body and mind year round. Participating in a comprehensive strength and conditioning program consistently is crucial given the current state of this game.
STT’s Football Performance Training (FPT) program includes instruction to improve movement efficiency, speed development, agility, power development, and strength. The athletes participating in the FPT program are closely supervised and attention to detail is always paid to proper technique and safety.
Football has been called the “ultimate team sport” by many coaches and players. Training as a team has numerous benefits that can contribute to a successful season. There is no better way to prepare a team for the upcoming season than to have them train together. By incorporating a sport-appropriate strength training program in conjunction with a position-specific conditioning and mobility plan, teams can be ready for the intense rigors of pre-season, the tough practices, and the big game.

FPT Scholastic Training Schedule*
In-Season (August to November): Coaches will tell you that this time of year in the training cycle is the most critical. With tough practices and proper game day preparations, working out three or four times per week is an unlikely possibility. A two day per week in-season program is much more feasible and practical to implement. In order to make training as convenient as possible, STT offers both team training sessions and individual athlete training options too.
Off-Season Training (December to February): After a physical season, injury management is a crucial component of an athlete’s year long training cycle. Post-rehabilitation program development and implementation, as well as general physical preparedness programming, allows the athlete to heal up and improve their mind and body. These exercises will help to continue strengthening weakened areas, while improving flexibility and mobility.
Scholastic Combine Training (March to May): Our comprehensive combine training program addresses the 10, 20 and 40-yard dash, Pro-Agility, L-Drill, Broad and Vertical Jump, and Power Ball Toss. Coach Taylor has been a national combine tester and has evaluated potential college athletes for over a decade.
Summer Training (May to July): Intense training with the emphasis on improved strength, conditioning, flexibility, and skill development. This 3-4 day a week program offers each player an opportunity to develop his or her physical and mental capabilities through prudent, productive, practical and purposeful training.
