Youth Athletic Performance Programs

Hill Country Indoor will offer an extensive and dynamic array of athletic performance training for children and young adults up through high school. Performance sessions will complement a young athlete’s regimen and will ensure that technique and form are held to the highest standards. Highly qualified coaches and instructors will work with the youth athletes to develop fundamental skills and movements in order to excel in their sport or across multiple sports.

GROUP Athletic Performance Training:

Athletic training in a group setting provides an excellent opportunity for kids to learn from each other in a competitive and constructive environment.

Athletic Development Classes:

Athlete Development training programs will be broken down primarily by training age and secondarily by sport. Each youth athlete will be assessed during their training to identify areas for improvement, performance limitations, and to establish performance baseline.

Stage One
Foundations (Ages 9-12)

In this stage, athletes learn how to train. Our focus is on establishing a solid foundation of movement literacy that will allow for the more advanced training to come. Our focus is not high performance, but promoting improving physical skills, having fun, and creating a strong positive attitude towards fitness and training.

Stage Two
Transition (Ages 11-14)

In this stage, athletes learn to produce and control the higher levels of power and speed that their growing bodies can generate. With a continued focus on mobility, deceleration, change of direction, strength, speed, power, and agility, we’ll help your athlete combat and overcome the issues that can come with periods of rapid growth. Training at this stage is still focused on general athleticism and not sport specificity as athletes in this group still receive the greatest benefits from building a strong foundation.

Stage Three
Emerge (Ages 13-18)

Stage three is when the athlete’s future is determined. Now prepared for higher level training, we’ll take your athlete’s training to the highest level to ensure they outshine the competition. Utilizing the latest technology we’ll maintain a complete athletic profile to ensure they’re continuing to develop the traits that best translate into performance on the field.

Stage Four
Next Level (Ages 15+)

Stage four is the domain of those youth athletes looking to earn a college scholarship. Our coaches have decades of experience in college and professional strength and conditioning programs and know what it takes to make it at the next level. We’ll provide the training and documentation necessary to get noticed and provide your athlete with a mentor that will serve as a guide to all things athletic development. With monthly planning meetings, training program design, nutritional consulting, and a complete athletic profile, this is an all-in plan to get your athlete to the next level. Are you ready?

Sport-Specific Development Classes:

Sport-Specific Training Programs will be offered seasonally to focus on the unique demands of each sport.

Programming will be based around High School UIL Sports and each respective season. Space will be limited in each session and requires a commitment to attend all sessions.

Complete Athletic Development

Take your Athletic Development to the next level by combining Skill Instruction AND Performance Training. Youth Athletes will work on sport skill development with HCI instructors in addition to enhancing athletic performance with training. Each session will consist of 45min of skill instruction and 45min of athletic performance training

Specialized Performance Group Training
(Ages 14 & up)

Let HCI supplement your training by providing specialized sessions focused on specific performance qualities. Athletes will be assessed using the latest technology to identify areas that need improvement which will help to maximize their training and improve results.

Strength and Power Enhancement: Maximize strength and power development to enhance explosive athletic performance. This is a great addition for any athlete looking to improve speed, total body strength, power, and explosiveness.

Pre-Season Preparation: Start your in-season practice with a solid foundation of training to ensure optimal readiness for the season ahead, with a greater emphasis on conditioning, agility, and movement.

As an athlete you can always find time for your workouts, but can never find time to take care of your body properly. Let the professionals at HCI help you with a recovery and restoration program to keep you performing at the highest level possible.

INDIVIDUAL Athletic Performance Training:

Individualized performance training allows trainers to create the most unique regimen designed specifically to the athlete.

Individual Performance Training: When you are ready to step-up to the ultimate in individualized training, let HCI design a specialized training program to fit your specific needs. Each program includes our Athletic Assessment Profile and utilizes the data to provide the best customized program to achieve success.

Small Group Performance Training: Looking for an individualized program but not ready for 1-on-1, or just prefer to train with other athletes? HCI offers small group training which provides each athlete their own individualized, custom program while sharing a performance coach. Group sizes vary from 2-4 athletes per coach.


HCI welcomes teams to utilize the facility for a variety of training purposes. Dedicated Team Training areas exist to provide a private and precise opportunity for athletes to train. Programs are customized to the specific needs and goals of each team and include our Athletic Assessment Profile. Contact Matt Herring to discuss options for Team Training at either our HCI location or off-site.

ATHLETIC Performance testing AND ASSESSMENT:

Hill Country Indoor Performance Coaches will offer a wide range of evaluations for athletes and fitness enthusiasts alike.

Athlete Performance Profile: A complete athletic assessment evaluating all areas of athletic performance including: Strength, Speed, Agility, Power, Flexibility, and Symmetry

Movement Analysis and Injury Prevention: An in-depth analysis looking at HOW the athlete moves in order to identify any asymmetry, imbalances, or movement limitations that might hinder performance and increase risk of injury.

Baseline Assessment for Return to Play: An assessment profile to establish baseline data to track progress or provide valuable information to determine return to play status after an injury or setback.


Let HCI help you get the most out of training by maximizing your recovery. Soft tissue massage, NORMATEC leg compression, and individualized mobility are some of the various techniques available. Hill Country Indoor has private rooms dedicated to specialized attention and services for rehabilitation.


Just because you don’t play a sport doesn’t mean you aren’t an athlete. Learn that a lifetime of fitness begins with a foundation of quality movements, and most importantly, FUN. Our instructors will lead programs designed for youth individuals looking to get moving and have a good time doing it!


Hill Country Indoor is excited for the opportunity to host special events related to performance training for youth athletes. Such events may include coaches clinics, combine testing, ultimate athlete competitions, educational demonstrations, and special guest appearances.
