PERFORMANCE ENHANCEMENT FUTBOL LAB

Welcome to our Valeo state­-of­-the­ art Performance Enhancement Futbol Lab at our Newton facility!

We have worked with some of the top minds in the athletic performance industry to create individualized programs for our athletes given their specific needs. We are committed to providing the best environment for overall player development, and with the constantly evolving physical requirements needed to compete in soccer, the implementation of our program will allow our players the best possible opportunity to stay healthy and improve their performance.
Housed in the Valeo Sports Center, the Valeo Futbol Lab provides soccer-specific skill development, human performance, health and wellness programs, and facilities where players can work on maximizing their athletic performance while improving their skill in the sport.

Our Futbol Lab is operated by Goodridge Strength and Conditioning; a world renowned game changer in the field of athletic performance and character development. Our comprehensive training programs are designed to improve the total athlete, on and off the field, so that you can gain an advantage over the competition. We provide programs for all levels and ages. Our integrated programs focus on individual specific pre­hab, range of motion, activation, reactive drills, speed, power, strength, and energy system development. The development programs are pinpointed for long term athletic development. The development programs consist of an INTRODUCTORY level, FOUNDATIONAL level, ADVANCED level, and PERFORMANCE level.

INTRODUCTORY LEVEL

The goal of the introductory level of youth athletic development is to learn fundamental movement skills. This movement based program focuses on basic functional movements such as hinge­ing, squatting, pulling, pressing, planking, and crawling, as well as, athletic movements such as landing, jumping, running, turning, and cutting, to name a few.

FOUNDATIONAL LEVEL

The goal of the foundational level of youth athletic development is to learn basic soccer-specific athletic movements and all soccer specific skills. This athletic movement based program focuses on learning the true way to transfer energy specific to soccer such as single leg landing, bouncing, rotating, and many other explosive movements.

ADVANCED LEVEL

The goal of the advanced level of youth athletic development is to master sport specific athletic movements and continue to build sport-specific skills. We spend more time working on an individualized program to maximize potential. This includes more speed, agility, plyometric, power, strength, and energy systems work.

PERFORMANCE LEVEL

At the performance level, we use science to give our athletes the competitive advantage. We have worked with some of the brightest and innovative minds in the world of sports science. The goal of a sports science program is to minimize and reduce the risk of injury and illness. Sports science allows coaches and athletes to take the guessing out of programming and periodization. The body adapts to the stress that is applied to it and sports science technology gives a very accurate way to measure these stresses which lead to better injury prevention and performance enhancement.

Take your game to the next level at our Performance Enhancement Futbol Lab.
