FAIRMONT Athletic Academy

Fairmont Athletic Academy provides middle school athletes with an innovative educational experience that integrates strength, speed, and sport specific training into the school day. It is currently offered at our San Juan Capistrano campus.

Athletic Academy
Students in the program benefit from spending part of their school day improving their sports performance and skill while benefiting from Fairmont’s award-winning academic curriculum and teachers. Athletic Academy participants are scheduled into three block periods of Academy. In this schedule, athletes receive two block periods of strength and conditioning/speed and agility, during which they train with our qualified strength and speed coaches five days per week. Athletes also receive one block period of sport specific training, during which they train with their respective sport coach on skill development three days per week. This program eliminates the time and costs associated with visiting a gym after school with a personal trainer as well as the individual sport coach for additional skill training. It opens up the remainder of the day following the end of school for their club or travel team practices in addition to more time for homework, family time, and sleep. Working with sport-specific coaches and experienced trainers, each student follows a customized training regimen. We utilize technologies such as VALD speed, jump and power, Gym Aware, and dynamometers to track athletes metrics throughout the program. As a partner with the Treigning Lab, a world class training facility that works with a multitude of professional athletes, our athletes have access to additional data driven testing such as resting metabolic rate and VO2 max.
SPORT SPECIFIC | Working with highly qualified, sport-specific trainers and coaches, athletes have time dedicated in their school day for skill development and training in their chosen sport. This far surpasses the allotted time during club practices to hone their skills year-round, which pays dividends to their improvement when competing with their outside teams.

ACADEMICS | Fairmont Schools’ elevated learning experience and high-level academics provide the educational foundation for an innovative school day structure.

STRENGTH & SPEED TRAINING | Athletes work with our certified strength and conditioning coaches daily to improve their flexibility, mobility, strength, power, and speed. Our coaches also work with professional athletes, college athletes, and high school athletes, allowing them to educate our middle school athletes on their path to success.
