Strength, Agility & Jump Training

Designed to help volleyball players become faster, stronger and more explosive, each practice session includes strength and agility training led by Viverant N1 Motion Performance.  By improving overall athleticism, this one-of-a-kind program looks to improve vertical jump, gain balance and stability, increase first step quickness and reduce the likelihood of injury.
