About this pro

Do you have a son that wants to play to play a D-1 sport or just want to get into better shape? Give him the gift of private instruction that he won't get from his PeeWee or High School Coaches from someone that knows what it takes to get a D-1 college scholarship. Private instruction offers individual attention and high-quality training, but it's the depth of this training that makes the difference.

    Pete is very knowledgeable. Really pushing the athlete to use his mind and body to be better as a QB. He comes all the way down to Tucson to train. Thank you for believing in me Pete

  • Robert Holley

    Pete is the best, he really understands how different players learn and designs his one on one training to maximize the time players spend with him. My son started going to A2Z Sports Training in 8th grade and is now playing quarterback at a Div 3 college. Pete spent the last month, before my son left for school, helping him break down game film from the college he was going to attend. I coach high school football and have sent not only my son, but multiple receivers, tight ends and defensive backs to help them improve individually.

    Coach Pete is great at explaining the concepts to my son and very patient and encouraging.

  • Chip Sroufe

    Coach Pete is excellent! My son has been training with him for over a year now an he has greatly enhanced his skills, techniques and knowledge about the game. Coach Pete is a great communicator & teacher. He customizes the sessions to help improve my son based on his results in the field during games. He is punctual, easy to schedule with and most importantly ... I see my son getting better and he always has a good time during his sessions. I would recommend Coach Pete to any player at any position who wants to improve their game and achieve better results.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Depends on the clients needs and position each session is an hour long unless stated other-wise by myself. Here are some examples I focus on and different types of sessions;  

Every athlete learns at different speeds, some drills my be easier for one athlete and harder for another to master. That's why 1 on 1 instruction is so important to focus on that individuals needs and to set up a customized game plan to help that player reach their highest potential in their specific position(s).  Sessions typically run for about an hour or a little over.

Speed development and enhancement is a careful balance and combination of strength training, sport training, skill training, and speed training. Limitations in any of these areas can hinder the athlete's ability to improve their speed. Example leg and core strength are essential for speed. The goal, focus, and direction are to enhance each individual's speed, quickness, agility, and body control relative to position they play. Linear speed is important, but the ability to change direction is quite possibly more important than flat out speed. Here we will improve individual's running technique, speed, acceleration, agility, first step quickness, balance, flexibility, coordination, power, drive, explosive starts and reaction to game stimulus.

Develop an objective based goal program with specific conditioning programs for the athlete. Strength and Conditioning Programs are designed to; increase work capacity in all aspects of physical training, strength and power, speed and agility, physical endurance and functional flexibility.  Develop a work ethic in terms of physical preparation and  recognized as a leader in the field
