This year, The Edge conditioning program at Sulphur Springs High School is being presented by Michael Johnson Performance. This week marks the fifth week of the six week program.
Wildcats’ coaches may not be involved in presenting The Edge but they are paying attention to who is attending. The first group at The Edge each day are boys who will be sophomores, juniors and seniors this year. That group started with around 60. Attendance slipped into the mid 40’s last week but Coach Young said attendance was back to to around 50 this week. He has been impressed with not only the number of varsity players showing up but also with younger kids as well. Coach Young said this has been one of the most consistent groups ever at The Edge. He said in the past, The Edge attendance would drop off 10 to 20 per week.
Coach Young said players attending regularly are feeling better about themselves and their confidence levels are increasing. He said having Michael Johnson Performance conducting The Edge is a nice break for participants and gives them a fresh voice to hear. Coach Young said MJP slows things down and teaches details of lots of different moves athletes make. He said eventually that will make better athletes of those attending.
