ATU's Pro-Sports wing is all about elevating your game. We do that by teaching your staff how best to use the water to condition, strengthen and rehab your pro-athletes. Our two-day Aquatic Training Options for the Professional & Elite Athlete classes are designed to show your ATCs the latest hard-core aquatic training regimes, active recovery drills, and post-injury rehab protocols in both shallow and deep water.

Not only that, our workshops are fully customizable to address not only your specific sport but also your different skill positions, unique diagnoses and individual HVAs (high-value-assets). All together, we pack your two-day course with 16 hours of lecture and pool lab that includes hands-on instruction in shallow water plyometrics, deep and shallow running drills, agility drills, vertical acceleration training, edema control and management.

We currently offer our workshops to franchises in the following organizations:

National Football League
Major League Baseball
National Basketball Association
National Hockey Association
Major League Soccer
Fédération Internationale de Football Association
