Jump Academy - April 2023

Jump Academy

The Youth Speed and Agility program introduced last summer has had great success. This summer, we are excited to unveil an additional, specialized sports performance program to compliment speed and agility. Jump Academy will begin this June and focus on developing strength and explosiveness to increase vertical jump.

This twice a week, four-week program includes pre- and post-vertical and broad jump measurements. The Fieldhouse recently added a Vertec vertical jump tester to be used during this program. Anyone wishing to test their vertical jump without enrolling in the program may do so for $15 and will receive a 20-minute session with a personal trainer to accurately measure reach and multiple variations of the vertical jump. Testing sessions can be purchased at the front desk or online. Youth Speed and Agility will continue to be offered each month for ages 5-7, 8-11 and 12-14. All sport groups are welcome to attend. Pre-registration is required due to the popularity of this program.

Setting goals is a critical step in remaining connected to one’s fitness journey. Just as the Jump Academy program will give tangible goals and results, group exercise is a great marker for success. Staying committed and seeing the results in a supportive group environment makes the Fieldhouse group exercise classes special. The Fieldhouse offers bootcamp classes at 5:30 a.m. Monday through Friday, as well as Spin, Zumba, Yoga, and others Monday through Saturday. All group exercise classes are included in membership or day pass fees.

The Fieldhouse with its many programs and offerings is a great place to be. To find out more information call the Fieldhouse front desk, 816-228-0137, or check the Fieldhouse website.
