FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
STARTING ATHLETES IN A STRENGTH AND AGILITY DEDICATED PROGRAM FROM AN EARLY AGE IS ONE OF THE BEST WAYS TO SET THEM UP FOR FUTURE SUCCESS AND INJURY PREVENTION. ALL OF OUR PROGRAMS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO DEVELOP PRACTICES THAT MAKE YOUR INVESTMENT, PRODUCE LONG-TERM RESULTS.
When does my account get billed?
A: For monthly recurring memberships, the card on file will be billed each month on the day the membership was activated.
How can I make changes to my account?
A: Membership account changes can be made per request. Should you need to cancel your membership, we ask to be notified within 5 days notice of the next billing cycle.

Is there a penalty if I have to cancel my class session?
A: Absolutely not! We understand that things happen. If this does occur, please resign yourself from your original class sign-up on the member app.
What training model does WAVE Agility & Strength use?
A: We base our training around the “Long Term Athletic Development” (LTAD) model, which is aimed to help athletes optimize training at a rate appropriate for their age, experience, and changes in growth. We believe that short term fixes do not elicit the desired results, making them a waste of your investment.
We all want to improve jumping skills and speed. With that comes the need for a strong foundation of Fitness, Flexibility, Strength, Stability and motor control. An overemphasis of a particular skill or movement is likely to lead to imbalance, overuse, burnout, and create more problems than it solves. We look at four ways to challenge an athlete on a progressive program. As they acquire skills we can elicit change with an increase in:
Volume - the number of repetitions performed on a given block.
Intensity - the load imparted on them through external weight or distribution like single leg versus double leg.
Duration - time allocated to an individual movement as it relates to speed, slow v fast (Tempo). Or the time of the bout itself eg. 15 sec v 45 sec increased methodically over time.
Complexity - This relates to the demand and neuromuscular coordination required to accomplish a task. Some simple examples of this would be to do an exercise on an unstable surface, using audible or visual cues for reaction in agility drills, or challenging them in different planes of movement eg. Jump rope side to side or backwards versus the typical forward version.
