“Today, it seems like there are a hundred kids trying out for every team”
** Just making the team is difficult
** Getting any playing time is not guaranteed
** Breaking into the starting lineup seems impossible
"If you want to be competitive, then it's time to get serious"
** No child enjoys being cut from the team
** No child enjoys going to practice all season and then watching the game from the sidelines.
** No parent enjoys taking their child to practice all season and then watching other parent’s kids play in the game.
Bras1sports's Comprehensive Training Program Process
The athlete’s evaluation process starts by studying the athlete’s in game video to analyze the technical sports movement patterns of the athlete and requirements of the sport.
Next we go to the track, the athlete will be taken through a series of sprints and multi directional movement drills to further analyze the technical sports movement patterns of the athlete.
Once we have identified the athlete’s technical flaws through movement analysis, we begin to develop a detail training program to correct the technical flaws identified by the analysis.
We execute that program by teaching proper sprint mechanics and/or lateral speed and multi-directional movement techniques that address the technical flaws identified in the athlete’s sports movement analysis. These techniques are supported and reinforced through drills run at full speed. Feedback is immediate.
Limited Class Sizes
Our athletes learn faster and progress quicker because of the individual attention they receive from their coach. Training sessions are either private or small group to allow focus on training quality and integrity.
Not all athletes are accepted into athlete training programs. We only accept highly motivated athletes into the program. This not based on level of the athlete, but on the whether the athlete wants to train to become better and is willing to put in the work.
Programs are 1 to 2 times per week for 4 to 12 weeks.
The type of athlete accepted into training:
Committed to Getting Better
Committed parents that want to provide their child with the best opportunity and tools to be successful in their chosen sport(s).
About The Trainer
Since 1989, Bras1sports has provided advanced sports performance and sports movement training services for teens and pre-teens in the Baltimore and Columbia Maryland Suburban Areas.
Coach Braswell has been training for over 25 yrs., and no longer trains a large number of athletes. He prefers working with a select few who have a strong desire to get better. Coach does all of the training and chooses who he works with very carefully.
Most of Coach Braswell’s greatest success stories have been with athletes he’s worked with for years. Coach Braswell knows he can make anyone a better athlete, but believes it starts with the athlete. He feels…
“They can’t be afraid to entertain a dream. If an athlete doesn’t have the desire and the willingness to do the work it takes to achieve success at their chosen sport, it becomes a waste of everyone’s time.”
Coach really isn’t interested in doing a few training sessions here and there with an athlete. He is interested in building long term relationships with his athletes and their families. “It’s a group effort to raise a successful athlete”.
Coach Braswell has been a strength and conditioning coach since 1989.
