ATHLETE PREP PROGRAM
Take your development seriously with a focused approach that supports your student-athlete schedule and let us take you to the next level. We provide P.E. credits (4) for students through the TOCA training model at USC.
Athlete Prep Program
For 14-18 Year Olds
Through the Student Athlete Prep Program we provide P.E. credits (4) for students through the TOCA training model at USC. The SAPP is held in partnership with the Richmond Virtual School Board; a public, online school platform that any students in grades 10-12 can take.
Low-impact, injury free training model
With the TOCA setting we can increase repetitions while decreasing energy output. With the use of short pile, rubberless indoor turf, USC pitches decreases harmful friction and wear-and-tear on the players body. Accompanied by the use of flat soled shoes, the player will further minimize the chance of injury that is so common on regular, artificial turf. The platform is designed to allow the player to train with TOCA at 1:45pm and join a team session later in the day without overloading the body. In utilizing the low-impact setting, the SAPP is the perfect additive to increase soccer repetition without the risk of overuse injury.

No matter what school calendar rotation you are held to, the SAPP will fit your schedule. SAPP sessions run between 2-3pm, Monday-Thursday, making it possible for students to get the last block of their schedule off on specific days within the week. Athletes are required to select and join 2 (minimum) to 4 (maximum) sessions a week.
