Nike SPARQ Training

Speed agility training consists of developing various athletic skills.  Blackline Athletic trains athletes not only to be faster, but to be more explosive and aggressive on the field; simulating and rehearsing game-type situations, regardless of which sport or activity.

Training speed and proper footwork done through repetition - Reinforcing proper movement patterns, motion paths and motor function, especially in juniors. In essence, you are “re-wiring” the brain’s neuromuscular system to operate correctly with proper mechanics and movement efficiency.    

Training athletic explosion is matter of training the athlete to effectively use their core strength, transitioning from a confined or restricted movement, into a free sprint and accelerating.

2020 FALL SPARQ Training

Thank you for choosing SAA and Blackline Athletic for your Nike SPARQ Training.  We look forward to working with your child for 9 weeks (no session Labor Day Monday Sept 7th) to help them become better athletes.  The training will be fun, but challenging so your son or daughter should be prepared to work hard in order to get faster, quicker, stronger, smarter, more instinctive and confident for their sport and position.Our first session will begin on Monday, August 31st at 6 pm.  The sessions will be conducted outdoors at the Hoover North Baseball Field, just east of the playground behind Hoover Elementary (dress appropriately for the weather). While most sessions are scheduled on Mondays and Wednesday, there may be sessions scheduled on other days of the week as make up dates due to cancellations related to weather situations.  Consult the SPARQ website for changes.

Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to your training session so we can get everyone checked in before the session begins. Your son or daughter should be dressed for an intense athletic workout.  Have them come with a good pair of gym shoes (or cleats), proper clothing for the temperature, a mask, and plenty of water, your participant must have their own water bottle with it clearly labeled. 

The sessions will be ran per SAA guidelines that follow the IL Phase 4 DCEO youth sports leagues guidelines. Meaning social distancing of 6ft, wearing masks when not able to social distance (not during aerobic activity).
