Athletic Lab’s highly successful University Prep Soccer Program will be returning this summer. Our eight week program will take place from June 4th to July 27th. This program is designed for current and incoming collegiate soccer athletes.
Athletic Lab is the official Sports Performance Training Center for the North Carolina FC and North Carolina Courage. This program allows high school and university to train like the pros! This program will focus on soccer specific and injury prevention training to prepare college athletes for the upcoming season. Each 90 minute session will develop soccer strength, speed, power, and conditioning. The program is in its seventh year and has had tremendous success preparing both high school players transitioning to college as well as current collegiate players for the rigors of the season. We will incorporate pro-style player monitoring and assessment to guide the training process. The training will incorporate the ball and game-like decision making to develop soccer-specific fitness that transfers to the game.
The planned programming will be developed and coached by Dr. Mike Young and Greg Gustin. Mike is the Director of Performance for the North Carolina Courage and the Head Fitness Coach for North Carolina FC. Previously, Mike was the Head Fitness Coach of the 2012 & 2013 Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS and the Carolina Railhawks from 2009-2011. In these roles, Mike worked directly with the first team athletes in the weight room and on the field to aid in their physical development, injury prevention, and recovery. He has been an invited guest at Real Madrid, Fulham FC and Liverpool FC and has lectured around the United States as well as Jamaica, Canada, Ireland, England, Japan, and Korea on soccer-specific fitness training. Greg Gustin is the Assistant Fitness Coach for the Courage and North Carolina FC and has extensive experience coaching some of the top high school and college players in the area.
