Why is Time Management important to Athletes?
Athletes are so busy with club teams, private workouts, homework, AP classes, family commitments and community activities. With all of these responsibilities for the new athlete, I decided to write a few keys on the importance of time management. “Time management” is the process of organizing and planning how to divide your time between specific activities. ... Good time management requires an important shift in focus from activities to results: being busy isn't the same as being effective. (Ironically, the opposite is often closer to the truth.). Here are five keys that all athletes should value on their journey in becoming a champion: Focus, organization, setting and maintaini...Read more

The Diep family has been making Champion’s QUEST their home for training since June 2015. Andrew, Persephone, Sherry and Emily Diep all play soccer for their club team Total Football Academy: South East Los Angeles. Andrew is 15 years old and also played soccer on the Cerritos High School JV team this past Winter. Persephone is 13 years old and plays for the U-15 TFA team coached by Frank Lopez. Sherry is 11 years old and plays for the U-13 TFA team also coached by Frank Lopez. Emily, the youngest, is 9 years old and competes for the U-11 TFA team.
Since all of the kids compete consistently against older competition, Andrew, Persephone, Sherry and Emily focus on developing their athleticism and technical ball skills at Champion’s QUEST. Andrew has been focusing on the Speed clinics to work on his running form, especially in his arms. Persephone and Sherry have been coming to Strength and Speed clinics to improve their athleticism on the field. Emily has been attending BASE clinics to work on her strength and speed. In addition, Persephone and Sherry come to private sessions to even further their athleticism and ball skills.

Huge congrats to Kassie Wilfong, one of our dedicated Softball athletes who hit ANOTHER home run this weekend in a HS league game! Kassie has been one of our most diligent, focused, and determined workers since she joined Champion's QUEST last October. In that time she has increased her athleticism by a confirmed 152%, which helped her achieve her year long benchmark goals in only 6 months! Some of the highlights of her athletic gains include 3" on her vertical jump, 30 reps on her max pushup test, over 2 minutes on her plank, and massive gains in speed and agility across the board! Not only has Kassie made huge strides in her athleticism, but also in her skill development. Being that this is Kassie's first full season of competitive so...Read more

There are many factors that can contribute to an athlete feeling “burnt out” and losing their interest in their sport or activity. Surprisingly, many of these factors have little to do with the athlete themselves.

Blake Gomez entered Champion’s Quest a few month’s ago with his FNL team eager to succeed and perform well. He not only performed well, he enrolled in our academy and excelled in his private sessions, clinics and performance testing. Blake recently achieved great results increasing his athleticism over 168% in 3 short months, but what was most impressive, was his core strength. On his initial test, he held his plank a little over 1 minutes 42 seconds, which is solid; however, he held his plank over 7 minutes 40 seconds in such a short time. Woooo.... you talk about focus, hard work and pure commitment, he knocked it out of the park!!!

Today, I want to talk again about throwing velocity, as it is one of the things that we really pride ourselves in here at Champion’s QUEST, and it is one of the more complex tasks of addressing. Really, it can be highlighted by 5 different areas that have to be addressed and trained, in order to see maximal gains. One of those key areas is mental aptitude. This can also be one of the toughest things to develop because we live in a sports culture and generation that over-glorifies statistical results. With this, it just so happens that we also glorify and yet renounce the importance of velocity for pitchers.
Guys, the first thing you have to do if you truly want to increase your throwing velocity, is learn and develop the ability to be comfortable throwing the baseball with a high effort level. The reason we are even talking about this today is because that is not always easy. I have witnessed first hand and through personal experience how pitchers have been culturally conditioned to be disgusted, and ultimately shamed for throwing wild pitches. The beauty of this game though, is that there’s always the next pitch. Pitchers, I want to be the first person in your life to give you the no strings attached license to go out and cut loose each time you step foot on the mound. Always stay on the attack with an aggressive approach and mindset to give yourself the best chance of success, and whatever happens will happen. Baseball is a game of mistakes, and the best players in the game are master adjustment makers. When you truly buy in to this decision you are going to start your journey of transformation which will ultimately self teach you to be a stronger, smarter, more athletic-pitcher.
