Hill Country Indoor is ready to help youth athletes take their game to the next level with AIM (Athletes in Motion) Performance Training. Utilizing our Performance Testing and our DARI Biomechanical Analysis Lab to develop a Total Assessment Profile, we will identify and individualize a custom plan to best meet your goals. Our highly qualified staff of Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialists will adhere to HCI’s Foundations of Athleticism to develop a youth athlete’s fundamental skills and movements in order to excel in their sport or across multiple sports.
Athletic Development Classes:
Athlete Development training programs will be broken down primarily by athletic training age and secondarily by sport. Each youth athlete will be assessed during their athletic training to identify areas for improvement, performance limitations, and to establish performance baseline.
Foundations (Ages 9-11)
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 athletic 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.
Transition (Ages 12-14)
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.
Emerge (Ages 15-18)
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.
Next Level (Ages 15-18)
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 athletic 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?

Athlete Performance Profile: A complete athletic assessment evaluating all areas of athletic performance including: Strength, Speed, Agility, Power, and a DARI Biomechanical Assessment.
Movement Analysis and Injury Prevention: An in-depth analysis utilizing our DARI Biomechanical 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 utilizing our DARI Biomechanical Analysis to establish baseline data to track progress or provide valuable information to determine return to play status after an injury or setback.
DARI Biomechanical Analysis and Performance Assessments
The key to a successful program is knowing where to start. Hill Country Indoor is the EXCLUSIVE Central Texas provider of the DARI Biomechanical Analysis system. An 8-camera, marker-less motion capture system allows us to optimize your movement profile to transform your motion and improve performance. Combining a DARI Analysis with our Performance Assessments will provide an athlete with a Total Assessment Profile. This profile will be the guide for performance programming, identifying injury risk, tracking progress, and establishing a baseline for return to play status.
ATHLETIC RECOVERY AND REHABILITATION:
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.

HCI ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT MODEL

To enhance Sport Performance, we plan to emphasize the establishment a strong base of Foundation Training, followed by Sport-Specific Movement Training. By emphasizing Foundation Training, we believe we are ensuring the best progression in preparing athletes for optimized training.
HCI PROGRAM OVERVIEW
To help us achieve our objectives, we include the following components:
Athletic Assessment Profile
Each athlete participates in a series of assessments developed with 3 main objectives.
• IDENTIFYING TRAINING EMPHASIS
• TRACKING TRAINING PROGRESS
• ESTABLISHING A BASELINE FOR RETURN TO PLAY
Test results are clustered accordingly and presented in a composite overview to quickly and easily identify areas for potential improvement and focus.
Results can also be used to track training progress as well as provide important baseline data for comparison following an injury and return to play clearance.
Programs will be guided by 3 key principles. Athletes move, and performance training should enhance and improve movement ability. We believe these principles allow our training to have the greatest carry-over to sports performance.
- MOVEMENTS NOT MUSCLES
- MULTI-DIRECTIONAL TRAINING
- GROUND-BASED/UPRIGHT EXERCISES
performance training PYRAMID
