2013 DYF Training

Posted by on May 3, 2013 with 0 Comments

Dear DYF Parents,

 

I would like to take a moment to introduce you to a wonderful resource here in the community, 5th Quarter Performance. 5th Quarter is a local sports training company that is owned and operated by former Dragons. 5th Quarter has been working with a number of young athletes playing for DYF in the following areas:

Position Specific Football Techniques

Speed & Agility

Strength & Body Control

Flexibility and Injury Prevention

Self Confidence & Mental Toughness

Our athletes are being instructed by former collegiate and pro level athletes that understand the hard work it takes to be successful at every level of the game. What’s most important though is that this hard work is done in a positive and motivating environment.

We still have a few spots still available for our summer programs, so we invite you to come out and try a free workout. Also, any new DYF athlete that signs up for the summer, 5th Quarter will donate 10% of the proceeds back to DYF.

If you have any questions please call Corey Young at 469-713-9999 or email him at corey@5thquarterperformance.com

Posted by on February 18, 2012 with 0 Comments

Tomorrow’s workout is going to be cancelled. With today’s early rain and the high probability of rain much of the day tomorrow the field will be unsuitable. Hopefully we will be through these wet weekends soon. Please take this time to rest and make sure the kids do a lot of stretching.

We will see everyone next week.

November & December Schedule

Posted by on November 7, 2011 with 0 Comments

All,

I can’t believe that for the majority of the kids the football season is already coming to a close. We are so proud of how well all the kids have done this past year! We wanted to take a moment and get everyone up to speed on what we will be doing for the next few months now that the season is done for some of the kids.

First off there will no more in-season workouts for the 7th & 8th graders that have been coming on Tuesdays & Thursdays. We want to make sure all the kids have a couple of weeks to rest and let any bumps and bruises heal up before we start our testing for the upcoming offseason. Below is the schedule for everyone except the varsity kids.

November 18th, 19th, 20th – We will be testing and assessing all kids who are planning to be in the program. I’ll be sending out a schedule of events to everyone, as well as putting the schedule our website this week. It is important for everyone to make these testing days. This will help us place kids in the appropriate groups of strength and skill.

November 21st – 27th – There will be no workouts this week other than to eat as much as you can at Thanksgiving.

November 28th – December 17th – We will be running a preparatory phase consisting of 2 strength workouts and 1 field workout each week. These workouts will be used to introduce or reintroduce strength, speed, and conditioning back to the kids. For our current 7th graders and older we will be stepping up the intensity a little so we want to make sure everyone is ready to go once the holidays are over.

December 18th – December 26th – No workouts

December 27th – December 31st – Final week of preparatory workouts

January 2nd – Next Fall – We get better every day!!

Once we get to January we will be offering additional workouts to add a little more specificity. You will have the options of adding extra speed days as well as some extra prehab and flexibility work for the kids that need to extra work on their flexibility. Please look for an email later this week with details on the areas that will be tested and what days to expect the workouts. We are also making a few small adjustments to training fees that we hope will make that process easier on everyone. I’ll include those changes with the testing schedule email.

We are really looking forward to working with kids again and we truly appreciate you allowing us the opportunity to help make them better. If you know of someone who will work hard and would be a good fit for the program please forward them this email or have them give me a call.
