Northbrook Speedskating Club has been training and sending athletes to every Winter Olympics since 1952. With particular emphasis on quality and technique, classes are tailored to help each participant achieve their personal athletic goals, regardless of their primary sport. Through the American Development Model, as viewed by the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee, age-appropriate acquisition of fundamental movement patterns apply broadly across youth sports. Exercises are designed to support coordination, speed and agility, strength and stamina, power and acceleration. Workouts will include plyometrics, the use of slideboards, and learning to maintain flexibility to reduce the risk of injury. Participants should bring their own water bottle and yoga mat to each class.
