Volt Athletics Powers New USA Football Strength Training Program
Indianapolis, IN; Seattle, WA - Tuesday, April 19, 2016: A new strength and conditioning program launched today by Volt Athletics, the global leaders in technology solutions for sport performance training, is the first comprehensive sport performance program built specifically to meet the needs of USA Football’s medically-endorsed Heads Up Football High School program.
The launch of the new program is in conjunction with the strategic partnership between Volt Athletics and USA Football, the sport’s national governing body and a member of the U.S. Olympic Committee.
The USA Football Strength Training Program powered by Volt Athletics is a comprehensive 52-week high-performance training regimen that reinforces USA Football’s movement patterns, allowing for high school football players to train like they play. It provides high school teams and coaches with access to elite-level strength and conditioning programs, while also giving athletes the best opportunity to perform each movement properly and safely.
Based on simple inputs by the coach or athlete, Volt’s technology builds the optimal training calendar for each athlete, customizes the training to each athlete's strength level, and generates an athlete's individualized workout for the day. Workouts are accessible via any device and include specific instructions, sets, reps, and prescribed weights as well as visual cues, including photos and video. Over time, the football-specific training program grows with athletes by calculating appropriate fluctuations in intensity, volume and exercise selections to avoid plateaus.
“The health and safety of every athlete is USA Football’s No. 1 priority,” said USA Football CEO SCOTT HALLENBECK. “Our strength and training program for high school athletes, powered by Volt Athletics, offers customized conditioning for smarter training and proper development, shaped by our medically endorsed Heads Up Football High School program.”
Created and administered by independent non-profit USA Football, Heads Up Football High School establishes important standards rooted in the best available science and is supported by the American College of Sports Medicine, the National Athletic Trainers’ Association and the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine. More than 1,100 high schools nationwide enrolled in the program in 2015. In addition, a combined total of 26 state high school athletic associations and coaches associations spanning 21 states endorse Heads Up Football High School for their member schools and coaches.
“Together, we’re providing football coaches and players access to professionally-built strength and conditioning, allowing for safe and effective physical development,” said DAN GIULIANI, co-founder and CEO of Volt Athletics. “The USA Football Strength Training Program ensures athletes, regardless of location, will be able to reach their full potential and better protect themselves against injury on and off the field.”
In June 2015, Volt Athletics was named the official strength and training provider for USA Football and its U.S. National Team program. USA Football assembles and manages U.S. National Teams in the sport for international competitions. As part of its partnership, USA Football and Volt Athletics will provide U.S. National Team athletes with customized, cloud-based training programs for all regional, national and international events.
The USA Football Strength Training Program was designed by Volt’s NSCA in collaboration with USA Football for teams and individual athletes. For more information on the program, please visit vltath.co/usafb-training.
