EC Athletics
Building the Athlete First
The single biggest factor for improving overall athletic performance in youth athletes is developing strength.

Body control, agility, coordination, speed, power, quickness, and endurance can all benefit from increased muscle density and a more efficient anaerobic energy system.

Our program helps athletes become better so they can be better on any field.

You need good athletes before you get great players.

The goal of EC Athletics is to increase youth athletic performance through the development of functional strength. Too often youth athletes spend more time working on sport specific training before their body has been prepared to appropriately handle the stress of high levels of performance.

It is common to see youth from 13 to 17 years old training on movements and skills that, while needed eventually, are meant to be effective for more developed athletes. The majority of youth athletes will benefit the most from generalized, athletic, strength development.

Ellicott City Athletics uses a program of varied movements and training methods to develop the following components of athletic performance in athletes:

  • Strength
  • Speed
  • Power
  • Coordination
  • Accuracy
  • Flexibility
  • Anaerobic Capacity
  • Recovery


Strong athletes are safe athletes. A common cause of injury in youth sports is a lack of muscular density and strength. Muscular weakness creates vulnerabilities in joints and ligaments as a result of the muscles lacking the ability to absorb and handle the load and amount of tension required. ECA encourages the development of strength through complex movements that activate the muscles in the whole body, in much the same way the muscles are used during sports activities.


Many sports like Lacrosse, Soccer, Football, Tennis, and others, are dependent on an athlete being able to create immense power and quickly distribute that power accurately for short bursts at a time. The ability to produce power in bursts and then recover quickly in succession is a key piece that the ECA program excels at training.


The combination of movements used in the ECA program are complex and require high amounts of coordination, flexibility and accuracy. Being able to competently perform in the ECA program will develop an athlete’s understanding of body mechanics and awareness that are incredibly important in high performance sports.
