More About Coach Phil

If you want to improve something you go to an expert for help. When Lorenzo Cain needed to improve his base running and overall speed, he didn't go to a baseball coach. He went to a track coach. I'm a collegiate track coach who loves working with athletes of all ages and ability levels. I offer speed development training specifically tailored to your individual needs and the needs of your sport. Why would you go to places that have "open training" where every athlete does the same thing regardless of their needs and goals? Those places are definitely good for one thing...making money for the owners and trainers. Let me set up an individualized program for you or your child based on the unique needs and training history of each person.

As a relay sprinter, thrower, and football player in high school, I won multiple awards including multiple conference championships and All-Conference honors.

We begin with a position or event specific dynamic warm-up followed by skill development, speed training, strength work, and work capacity or mobility work to finish. I focus on building an individualized program for each athlete based on their unique strengths, areas of concern, training background, goals and injury history. No workout will be exactly the same, but the foundation of my philosophy is to examine the specific demands of each person's sport, position, or event and to evaluate the athlete based on how prepared they are to meet those demands.

After the 1st and 2nd session, our son has learned a lot and has improved his technique. Coach Phil makes you feel comfortable and has a vast knowledge of everything you could possibly want to know. We have already purchased more sessions!

I visited Coach Phil several times to learn how to throw the javelin. He is very passionate and knowledgeable about throwing. I really enjoyed working with him.

Great overall coach ready to get more work.

We are so excited that we found Coach Phil. He was so informative on speed , technique, and body mechanics. He explained everything he did and we felt that the session with our son was very individualized. We look forward to our next session!

Phil is an excellent coach! My kids loved working with him from
Day 1. They learned so much and had a great time. The workouts were tough and they still loved it. Highly recommend Phil!

I would recommend coach Phil to everyone.

Coach Groves does an amazing job! After just one group session with him my daughter got her XC PR of the season two days later. He has a great rapport with the kids and makes the training sessions fun while teaching them valuable techniques. My daughter is looking forward to her next session!

Coach Phil exceeded my 15 yr. old son's expectations. He was able to diagnose some running form issues and put him on a path to correct these issues. Coach Phil systematically evaluated every aspect of his mechanics and flexibility. This was exactly what we were looking for. Coach Phil was very personable and related very well to my son. My son cannot wait until his next session. I would highly recommend coach Phil.

Amazing coach!!! Really gets to know the athlete and what will work best for them to achieve their fullest potential!

Rhys loved it and learned a lot already!

Coach Groves has passion! Only 1 session in and my son had a great time. Cannot wait to continue on!

Coach Phil is awesome!! He explains everything so it's easy to understand and makes sense. He's passionate about what he does and his enthusiasm is contagious!

Coach Groves is doing an exceptional job with my son. He listens, watches, and has developed a personalized a program to help my son achieve PR's in all of his events. His coaching helped my son win a Regional Championship and a 2nd place finish. I would highly recommend his coaching services and will continue to use him for my son.

Coach Phil was excellent at introducing new techniques in manageable sections and in a logical sequence.

Coach Phil did an amazing job helping my daughter fine tune her high jump technique. Looking forward to working with him again.

Excellent session! Appreciation his passion.

Coach Phil has coached me in ways I haven't been coached before. Every session I learn things no one has ever taught me before. He's a great all around coach and I'm excited for every opportunity to work with him!

My son had his first session with Coach Phil. Coach and my son worked well together. Chantz had a lot of fun and learned a lot. Coach Phil is very knowledgeable with his instruction. We intend to schedule many more sessions with Coach Phil. This coach is what my son's track training has been missing. Thank you coach Phil for your help.

Very good teacher! Explains why to focus on what is needed in the drills.
Not just a workout- made the work fun and interesting for the boys

Coach Phil is the best coach we have had the pleasure of working with. His high energy and insightful ideas has and will change how my son will approach running and speed training going forward. After the first session, my son used what he learned the same day in football practice and looked great on the football field. I just wish we had found coach Phil years ago. I highly recommend Coach Phil and looking forward to our next session.

Coach Phil was awesome! The kids learned so much and are running faster now. Coach took the time each session to explain and teach each child properly. Will definitely recommend to others!

coach Phil very observant to the needs of my son, excellent training so far !

Great sessions, learning how to be more explosive. Already can see and feel the difference.

Coach Groves is more than an excellent coach. His ability to teach and reach the mind and heart of an athlete is why we will continue to have our sons train with him. Thank you, Coach Groves!

Coach Phil is a great coach! He relates well to my athlete and knows how to motive her. His training and techniques are excellent. I would recommend Coach Phil to any thrower.

Our son Cole is in 8th grade and has been working with Phil for a year now. Phil has been teaching Cole how to throw the Shot, Disc and Hammer. He has taught Cole such great TECHNIQUE that when he goes to a track meet we have many parents asking us who taught him how to throw? (He has great form) The Answer is always Coach Phil at JCCC. If you have a child interested in throwing get ahold of Phil he is the coach for a athlete of any age and any level. The one on one lessons Cole did really help him Coach Phil could touch up his Techniques that he had gotten lazy on during middle school track and Coach Phil had him back on track. Phil is a 5 Stars in our eyes.
Thank you

Coach Phil was fantastic. Our 13 year old daughter is just starting in track and after an hour you could see improvement in her technique. We live out of the KC area and he equipped her with drills to practice daily at our home track.We will definitely be scheduling more lessons! Well worth the drive. Thx, Coach!

Coach Phil is the real deal. In just two sessions(and daily homework) I can tell a difference in my daughter's athleticism, explosion and form. What he is training her for translates to so many different sports. His knowledge of how the body works is going to really help her with explosiveness, quickness and overall speed. I will update this review in 6-10 weeks to let you know how this translates to her sport.

Our son truly loves working with Coach Phil! His knowledge, enthusiasm and love for track and field are truly contagious. Couldn't be more thrilled to have him as our coach!

My son is a sophomore in HS and was looking for a coach that could help him take his jumping to the next level. Coach Groves was great at explaining the mechanics of the long and triple jumps and helping my son really understand the sport. We will be scheduling more sessions and would definitely recommend other athletes to Coach Groves.

Coach Phil did an excellent job of evaluation and identification of habits to improve upon. He explained everything very well to my son and showed him how to train in order to make adjustments. We were both very pleased with his insight and his ability to communicate the "why" in suggested changes. Coach Phil is excellent!

Coach Groves worked great with my 16 yr old. Both of us learned a lot today to assist her with her form of the hurdles. Wonderful day!! Can't wait until next session!

You would not likely find a better coach for your thrower than Coach Groves. His teaching principals break technique down to a level that even my seventh grade "never threw an implement in his life" can even understand. 5 stars! Your middle school thrower is not going to get instruction like this from his school coaches, I guarantee you that. Been there done that.

I thought my son's initial session with Coach Phil was great. He took my son through the basics to see what he knew and then applied some improvement ideas to help with his javelin technique. We'll definitely book another session and additional sessions over the winter as track season approaches.

Coach Phil put me to ease after my first session and first experience with a trainer. I recently got on to play for a women's tackle football team and he got me right into the training and explained my position to me. Coach Phil is very knowledgeable and I am looking forward to the next session and highly recommend Coach Phil!

Coach Phil has taught our boys a lot about the mechanics of running as well as how to apply these to their sport. He relates to the boys and makes working out a fun yet challenging experience. We have already seen results in the relatively short time we have been working with him. Recommend him highly!

Great teacher. Not just how to run, but the understanding of the mechanics.

Alex had a great experience working with Coach Phil for some prep for the Junior Olympics. He provides tons of advice and tips to make Alex a stronger athlete. He relates well to young athletes and Alex enjoys working with him.

Phil works great with my son. He has a very positive attitude, offers frequent feedback on ways to improve technique and provides encouragement when my son is performing well. He also shares information with us so my son can effectively practice and train on his own.

We spent two years trying to figure out what type of a trainer my 15 year old needed to recover from a debilitating knee injury resulting in a complete muscle loss in his legs. Phil identifies the issue in 5 minutes and designed a workout to meet his needs. Just sorry it took so long to finnd the right help.

Coach Phil did an amazing job with my daughter! He had tons of new information and techniques to share. He had a fantastic approach to his coaching. She learned more in one session then she did in an entire season (or two) of track.

Coach Phil did such great job with my son Luke, we immediately booked another session! I was impressed with how well he coached to a 12 year old's level. After just one session Luke has doubled the distance of his discus throw.
