Youth Sport Performance

If you’re an athlete, you work hard to stay at the top of your game in strength, agility, endurance, and overall performance. Your dedication is about more than just a game – it’s about challenging yourself to reach your potential.

That’s why the Bloomsburg Area YMCA is now offering Youth Sport Performance, led by our CSCS-certified trainer Ed Pavalko.

These sessions will run for 1 hour and be held twice a week for 6 weeks in the Y gymnasium and outdoor field (weather permitting). Each session will include a dynamic warm-up, plyometrics, agility drills, sprint drills, conditioning, and a cool-down period.

Sessions start June 10th.

Registration is NOW OPEN at the Bloomsburg Area YMCA or online – click the link below to register today! 

Enhance Your Game

Youth Sport Performance will provide young athletes with exercise sessions designed to improve speed, power, agility, conditioning, flexibility, and athleticism.

The exercise program will consist of sprinting drills to improve speed, change-of-direction, cone, and speed ladder drills to improve agility, plyometric drills to improve power and explosiveness, and interval training to improve athletic endurance.

Meet our Trainer: Ed Pavalko

“I studied Biology and Educational Studies at Colgate University before obtaining a Masters of Education at Bloomsburg University. In 2018, I became a Certified Personal Trainer, and in 2019, I earned my Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist certification.

At North Schuylkill high school, I was a 3-sport athlete and earned several All-State selections as a defensive end and running back. In 2009 and 2010, I was honored to receive the WNEP Dream Team Defensive Player of the Year. I went on to be the starting fullback at Colgate University for four seasons, earn 3 First Team All-Patriot League Fullback selections, and be named to the Academic All-Patriot League team.

It is my goal to use my knowledge and experience to pay it forward and to help young athletes excel and achieve at the highest level.”
