School’s almost back in session, which means that varsity seasons are either about to get underway or are off in the not so far distance.
The best-prepared players tend to take their games and teams to the next level. Want to be one of those difference makers?
NXT at EA is hosting the NXT Training Academy at Episcopal Academy. Led by EA head strength and conditioning coach Steve Musacchio and EA assistant strength and conditioning coach Lara Winter, the NXT Training Academy tailors to small groups of dedicated athletes ready to elevate their game.
The NXT Training Academy begins the week of Sept. 21 and ends the week of Nov. 23. It consists of two one-hour sessions per week with separate groups for boys and girls with a very limited number of athletes per session. The small groups ensure that every athlete gets plenty of individual attention and that only the most dedicated athletes want to be a part of the NXT Training Academy.
Girls train under Winter’s watchful eye on Mondays and Wednesdays, while boys will work with Musacchio on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Full season registration is $950 and can be purchased here. Payment plans are available if needed. An average training session includes warmup and recovery methods, proper weightlifting techniques, exercise protocol to increase core strength, flexibility, body control and injury prevention. Athletes also learn fitness ideals to maintain for life, as well as proper nutritional standards and goals.
“Steve and Lara have done an exceptional job of helping Episcopal Academy’s athletes get into great shape and avoid injuries as best as humanly possible,” NXT Management Director Joanna Johnson said. “They both have a strong background in the strength and conditioning field and there’s no doubt that they’ll teach our athletes the best way to be ready for their varsity seasons.
