Functional training is any type of excercise that has a direct relationship to the activities you perform in your daily life or in a particular sport.
The Functional Training Academy (FTA) have teamed up with the industries most advanced manufactures of fitness equipment and pulled together with top trainers across North America, Europe, Asia and South America to bring the best functional training solutions here under one roof.
FTA was born and tailored. For the Athlete in You. FTA strives on using state of the art equipment and leading education to guarantee that your body recieves the full workout it needs to create progressive results. We believe in training movements, not muscles, as the body works day to day as a unit and not as individual parts.
YSSA has partnered up with FTA in order to provide our Academy players with an optional fitness program that compliments our soccer training sessions. That being said, when registering for our Pre-Academy or Elite-Academy programs, players now have the option of registering for weekly FTA sessions that run in conjunction with YSSA programs.
Cost? $120 per season (season runs in line with YSSA seasons: Spring, Fall/Winter, Summer)
How often? Once a week for the duration of the YSSA Pre-Academy season.
How do I register? Registration forms can be filled out on our Pre-Academy Page.
