Frequently Asked Questions
Frequently Asked Questions
How many times can my athlete train per week?
The amount of training per week depends on the specific Parisi program. Some programs are unlimited, while others are specific to a number of days per week. The optimal amount of training per week again depends on the program, but in general 2 – 3 days per week is average.
What is youth sports performance training?
Sports performance training is a relatively new term. It focuses on training a young athlete to be the best he/she can be in his/her chosen sport. The training includes the foundations of any good athlete: speed, agility, strength and self-confidence. And, an added benefit of good sports performance training is a reduction of sports related injuries.
How does scheduling work?
Parisi offers 1-hour training sessions at least once a day and usually multiple times per day. Since most youth/athletes train 2 – 3 times per week, this schedule provides the maximum flexibility for your busy schedule. We even offer Saturday classes.
Does the program include weight lifting? I heard that is unsafe for children
Our Jump Start programs do not include weight lifting, but use body weight techniques to increase strength in a safe and effective way. Athletes in our Total Performance and PEAK programs will incorporate carefully scripted and monitored weight lifting into their programs. All of our strength scripts for these programs have been written and approved by experts in the field of youth sports performance. You can rest assured that your athlete will be well taken care of in our programs!
What is the best program for my athlete?
The best programming for your youth/athlete depends on the his/her goals, and yours. The only way to determine the best fit is to contact your local Parisi and book an evaluation. During that time, the Parisi staff will discuss the results of the evaluation, along with goals and recommend the most appropriate program for your youth/athlete.
How much does it cost?
Parisi programming has a variety of pricing offerings to fit into any budget. We offer “pay up front” and monthly options. Most of our locations offer no-contract and contract options based on what works best for your situation, as well as flexibility to “freeze” Parisi particpation during your athlete’s sports season.
How many athletes are in a class?
Class size depends on the program, but generally, we follow class sizes below:
Jump Start, Total Performance and Elite Sports Performance – 6 to 8
PEAK – 1- 4
How long will it take to see results?
Results depend on the effort your youth/athlete puts into the program. Most youth/athletes who come 2 – 3 times per week and are engaged in the sessions will feel and see immediate results, but you will begin seeing results after only several weeks. If you ever question your youth/athlete’s progress, the Parisi staff will be happy to conduct an updated evaluation.
