Power & Speed Program

PRACTICE GROUP UPDATE as of Friday, March 20th: 

Athletes Age 14 and Up, that are currently registered and training with the Royals, will continue to train using electronic communication with their coach. Watch for an email from your coach to learn how your training will proceed. Athletes in this age group, who are not currently registered but are interested in training, may reserve a spot on the 14 & Up Waitlist by Registering Online and selecting the “$20-One Week Trial” option. Cost: $20 (which can be applied to a membership package if the season proceeds or be reimbursed if the the athlete is unable to train this season). Due to health concerns, high jump and pole vault are not currently available for training.

Due to insurance rules, all athletes must have a paid Valley Royals Membership to participate with a Royals training group. A $20 one-week trial membership is available for athletes new to the Royals and wanting to check out a training group before buying the full membership.
