Welcome to CRU PERFORMANCE!
For those who want a complete athletic experience, an intense volleyball training period, play high-level competition, and get college recruiting exposure the MAX program is for you. This program is modeled after college and higher-level programs that maximize training periods. Research shows training and competing in periods with rest and recovery in between is the preferred method for optimal development. Through effective periodization athletes can maximize training gains, reach peak performance, set target goals, and recover properly to avoid over-training and injury. Here is a great article on the benefits of periodization.
Club ball is demanding and skill, athlete development and peak performance can get lost in a demanding five-to-six-month period that requires an 8-12 tournament schedule right after the high school season. CRÛ MAX is a four-month program which begins with skill training (development and application) and athletic development in our winter training block, then moves into team training and a highly competitive season during the peak college recruiting period. After that, it’s balance of life, time for other sports or activities, rest and recovery, then back at it again ready for the next period. No more fear of missing out, do it the MAX way!
Here is a typical NCAA schedule:
College athletes are physically capable of taking intense reps for longer periods of time, but still train in blocks to allow for optimal development and to maximize athletic gains prior to competition. Junior athletes may not be physically and mentally developed enough to endure long training loads, but many train for longer periods of time, without rest and recovery, than what is currently expected of college athletes. The objective of the CRÛ MAX program is to train so athletes can peak at the most meaningful times, rather than try to peak perform year-round (which is unlikely).
CRÛ MAX will emphasize the January to April period. Those who make the MAX team will go through the training block program, have a team practice period and play in three national events. If you do not make the MAX team but still want an intense skill training and athletic development experience, CRÛ will have a limited number of spots available for the Winter Advance Training Block. Sign-ups for those spots will be in September.
