The course was very helpful because it detailed how to structure a workout around youth athletes that are involved in different sports, with different peaks throughout different seasons, and how to create a workout around those factors including different ages. I will be able to incorporate this into training hockey players and specialize the movements around the dynamic movements in their sport.

Some good handy tips 💪💪💪

Melissa is a great teacher and a youth athlete coach!
