Strengthening our youth since 1996

PFA was created to bridge the gap between promising youth athletes and individual professional training. The cost of professional trainers in a one-on-one or small group environment can be astronomical and beyond reasonable for a family or program to afford. At PremierFA, we close that gap.

Through consistent feedback, training sessions become increasingly personalized and productive. Safe communication methods allow for a parent-monitored feedback platform keeping the coach accessible and consistently aware of the status of their athletes.

What is the difference then? Intensity of the learning and the example set by Coach Diego to his athletes. The expectations are high but there are many tools taught to reach goals ultimately creating not only a better athlete but, more importantly, a better and more capable person.
