Customized Sport Specific

Team Performance Training

Our coaches will design a sport specific program, of any sport, customized to your needs.


Customized Team

A sport specific training program is designed by the performance coaches at Griffin Elite that meet the demand of the team and sport need. The training emphasis and direction is determined by the coaches, supporting staff, and performance members at Griffin Elite. The program is always age appropriate and designed for the current skill and ability level of the athlete. All athletes will feel welcome and engaged during the training session(s). The athletes will progress once they demonstrate sufficient ability to perform the foundational skills needed for more advanced movement and loading conditions. Each session will be coached under an optimal coach to athlete ratio, so adequate attention is given throughout the entirety of the training period.


Basketball Team

Our basketball team training focuses not only on individual skills, but team unity. We are here to make sure that teams are utilizing the unique variety of skills that their team possesses in order to maximize their performance on the court.


Soccer Team

Our sessions will improve technical skills, along with tactical awareness and other instruction to make sure your team is ready to take their game to the next level.

Our Coaches
