Walsh Jesuit Women's Basketball in Action

Hello Everyone,

AGSP trains many of the Walsh Jesuit Women's Basketball players in the off-season and this year is working with the whole squad once a week to improve their speed, agility, and overall athletic performance throughout the season.

I had the opportunity to see the girls win on Saturday and while I was there I caught some great speed and agility shots of the girls (AGSP athletes will clearly see the acceleration mechanics).

It is always fun to see the skills practiced at AGSP in action!

Check out some videos!

Keep Training!
(I know the Walsh Jesuit Women's Basketball Team is!)

Hello Everyone!

Coach Sowers demonstrates some of the drills AGSP athletes do in our world-class program.

Want to train like Division One athletes?
Want to learn the same things they learn to increase their speed?
Want to train in the Akron-area with coaches that work with Top D1 Sport Performance Coaches?
Then you need to train at Akron General Sports Performance (AGSP)!
