Elite Performance Training

Youth Sports Performance Program

Youth athletes of all backgrounds at Integrity Athletics will now have access to a team of specially-trained sports medicine experts and resources because of a unique agreement between Integrity Athletics and the Sports Medicine program at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

As part of the newly-formed collaboration, certified athletic trainers and certified strength and conditioning coaches from Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine will focus on injury prevention, conditioning and age-appropriate educational activities on site. Youth athletes training at the recreational level through elite and competitive gymnasts and volleyball players will have an opportunity to consult with these members of the Nationwide Children’s Sports Medicine staff.

Integrity members, parents and other athletes interested in elevating their sport performance in a safe environment can request these services at the Integrity Athletics and Elite Volleyball Training Center location in Plain City, Ohio.
