STUDENT ATHLETE TRAINING
XIP ATHLETE DEVELOPMENT MISSION
Our focus at XIP is to help athletes reach their performance potential while creating more reactive athletes who are both durable and versatile on the field of play. This in turn leads to athletes who will dominate both physically and mentally in any environment, whether it's competition or in life.
Create diverse and durable athletes who are fast, strong, powerful and agile on any field of play.
Reward technique and skillful movement over loads lifted. Reward the process not just the product.
Prevent injury during competition.
Prepare athletes for the next level in their competitive career, be it high school, college or the professional level.
Create athletes that do not train to play, but who train to win.
Create athletes who will always work to be 1% better.
Create athletes who are coachable.
Physical Education Curriculum
Recently, XIP and Newark Street School partnered to create and implement a training program with a focus on physical education and applied fitness principles. Coaches Evan Johnson and Adrian Guyer met with Principal Tim Mulligan and collaborated to create a super cool learning opportunity for the students. Mr. Mulligan weighs in on the experience here:
"In the Spring of this past year, as Principal of the Newark Street School, I had the opportunity to take a group of middle school student athletes to work with Adrian and Evan at XIP. The coaches at XIP served as great mentors for these students. They did baseline fitness assessments, helped them to create fitness goals, created a developmentally appropriate program to help them move towards their goals, and created an exciting environment for them to thrive. Above all, I love my students working with Adrian and Evan because they are pillars of exceptional character in our local community. They understand and appreciate the value of hard work, perseverance, and caring for self and others. For this reason, I just want my students and my own children to have the opportunity to work with them."
