Training session will vary, depending on what the athlete and parents thinks he/she needs and what is determine that is needed from our first initial assessment. Assessment are usually 1hr to 1:15min at 45.00 for non-clients, and 25.00 for clients. Generally, team and individual sports athletes, not including track and field athletes need overall playing speed improvement and athletic development for their sport. We will focus on these skills but are not limited to these skills: Change of Direction, acceleration and deceleration, running/movement mechanics, flexibility and mental training, neuromuscular training, speed-strength usage and training. Track and field athletes in the sprints, jumps and/or Multi-event athletes looking for speed development, event specific and long jump training. We will focus on running mechanics and training, flexibility, racing, acceleration, neuromuscular training and mental training. No matter what group you fall under, we will develop or enhance these skills through varies drills, technology and running exercises. All training is governed by the principles of biomechanics, kinesiology and the laws of Physics.
I promote a long-term training plans and training relationship between coach and athlete. I will conduct training sessions of whatever amount your looking for but the absolute best training results, come through a long-term commitment. I offer many different packages.

He was great. After a long break from track my daughter got back to basics which is a good thing

Coach Darren, is a great coach for my 10yr old twin tornados. He showed knowledge, excitement and best of all patience. We will without question return for additional coaching.

Coach Darren was a great coach.Like the one on one attention he showed. He knew what he was talking about.highly recommend

We met Coach Prince during my daughter's hs senior year when she decided that she wanted to add jumping to her resume. From the beginning, my daughter felt comfortable with and encouraged by Coach Prince. He spent timing making sure my daughter understood the technique of jumping and the skills that would lead to her success. He is extremely patient, kind and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, due to injuries my daughter was only able to jump in 2 meets. By her second meet she jumped 16-11.5. Had she continued jumping, we are confident she would easily surpassed 17 or 18 feet. I only wish Coach Prince had more time to work with her and develop her jumping skills. Even though my daughter stopped jumping, Coach Prince continued to make himself available to us both to answer track questions and get her ready to run in college. We feel truly fortunate to have had a very short but meaningful experience with Coach Prince.
Coach Prince has helped me improve my running mechanics and overall speed and fitness greatly during my offseason as a varsity soccer player for my high school. I have been training with him for over a year and I would recommend him to any athlete of any sport looking to increase their speed and running mechanics.
