How Does PSA Transform Athletes Into Champions?

Davis educates while empowering the athletes to seek out an athletic advantage hidden in their genetics.
Students improve on weaknesses, perfect thier strengths and implement them all into their athletic arsenal.

 

Structural Sports Performance Evaluation

Premiere Sports Academy uses the structural sports performance evaluation, designed by Antonio Davis, to determine reasons why an athlete's performance may not be representative of their work ethic. This trademarked talent assessment is a very effective evaluation tool for determining the following.

Structure

One of the most overlooked part of athletic performance test to start at the very beginning. Without understanding skeletal structure; work ethic, weight training & conditioning are all useless. A body's structure must be positioned properly in order to benefit from sports and performance. Without it hard work can literally lead to no progress. Here are just a few elements this one-of-a-kind structural analysis will uncover.

  • • Skeletal alignment

  • • Postural imbalances

  • • Joint stability

  • • Range of motion

  • • Direction of mechanical leverage

 

Muscular Function

Understanding anatomy and physiology at its basic level will give a huge benefit to understanding how to train properly. In layman's terms Anatomy is the study of "what and where"; Physiology is the study of the "muscle's job". This portion of the assessment focuses on:

  • • Muscular balance

  • • Muscular flexibility and range of motion

  • • Muscular Stabilization

  • • Risk of injury to joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons

 

Performance Needs Analysis

After understanding the client's structural & muscular deficiencies; parents, athletes and coaches well have a clear understanding of how improvement in the areas discovered. During the assessment it will also be clear as to how proper training have a dramatic effect on their athlete's future potential for greatness. There will be a better understanding of the following sciences.

  • • Building Applicable Strength versus Generic Weight Training

  • • Understanding Training versus Practices & Workouts

  • • Transforming Self-esteem into Mental Toughness

Physical Sports Performance Evaluation

Premiere Sports Academy uses the Physical Sports Performance Evaluation, designed by Antonio Davis, to determine reasons why an athlete's performance may not be representative of their work ethic. This trademarked talent assessment is a very effective evaluation tool for determining the following:

Acceleration & Sprint Mechanics

One of the most overlooked part of athletic performance test to start at the very beginning. Without understanding skeletal structure; work ethic, weight training & conditioning are all useless. A body's structure must be positioned properly in order to benefit from sports and performance. Without it hard work can literally lead to no progress. Here are just a few elements this one-of-a-kind structural analysis will uncover.

  • • Skeletal alignment

  • • Postural imbalances

  • • Joint stability

  • • Range of motion

  • • Direction of mechanical leverage

First the Quickness

Understanding anatomy and physiology at its basic level will give a huge benefit to understanding how to train properly. In layman's terms Anatomy is the study of "what and where"; Physiology is the study of the "muscle's job". This portion of the assessment focuses on:

 

  • • Muscular balance

  • • Muscular flexibility and range of motion

  • • Muscular Stabilization

  • • Risk of injury to joints, muscles, ligaments and tendons

Agility and change of direction

After understanding the client's structural & muscular deficiencies; parents, athletes and coaches will have a clear understanding of how improvement in the areas discovered. During the assessment it will also be clear as to how proper training have a dramatic effect on their athlete's future potential for greatness. There will be a better understanding of the following sciences.

 

  • • Building Applicable Strength versus Generic Weight Training

  • • Understanding Training versus Practices & Workouts

Total Athletic Proficiency Examination

  • *How secure is the Therapist in the FULL recovery upon therapy expiration?

  • *How secure is the Surgeon in the FULL recovery upon therapy expiration?

  • *How secure is the Athlete in FULL recovery upon physical therapy expiration

  • *How secure are the Parents in FULL recovery upon physical therapy expiration?

  • *What was the underlying cause of the injury? Was it corrected? *How fast, strong and fit is the athlete following the rehab process?

Not sure? Many athletes return to practice not only insecure in their recovery, but are also dangerously de-conditioned from extended periods of limited activity. This is a tremendous hill to climb and without Premiere Sports Academy athletes can find themselves sidelined again with either the same injury or a new one.

Speed
Being "Fast" is how well you can get your entire body from point A to point B. Athletes are evaluated on their sprint times and acceleration ability.

  • • 10 Yard Dash

  • • 40 Yard Dash

  • • Home to First

Work Ethic, Confidence & Self Esteem
Ability to maintain an enduring athletic commitment to training one is the most difficult parts of being a superior athlete. Consistency in training at PSA is a huge factor at determining physical performance results.

 

  • • Training Frequency (Based on Number of Training Sessions over 8 weeks)

  • • Learning Curve (Processing & implementing learned information)

  • • Mental Toughness (Believing in yourself despite history or popular opinion)

Agility & Power
Athletes are evaluated on their ability to change directions or activities, manage momentum and re-accelerate around cones and obstacles

 

  • • Pro Agility (5-10-5 drill)

  • • Illinois Agility Drill

  • • Vertical Jump

  • • Standing Long Jump

General fitness
Conditioning enables athletes to do more work, in higher volumes, with less effort. Athletes are evaluated on athletic endurance including aerobic and anaerobic conditioning.
