Junior Warriors to Open New Training Center in Haverhill Valley Forum
Athletic Evolution to Manage 3,000 SF Training Center in Twin Rinks Facility Set to Open in February ‘07
In just two months, the Valley Junior Warriors will open the doors to a new, 60,000 square-foot training center in the Haverhill Valley Forum. Operated by Athletic Evolution, a Woburn-based athletic performance company, this state-of-the-art facility will serve as the physical training center home for the Valley Junior Warriors program “Our partnership with Athletic Evolution will add a new dimension to our Junior Warriors program,” said John Gilmartin, president of Valley Associates. “The players will now have access to a full-service training facility and an experienced staff of certified strength coaches throughout the year.”
The partnership with Athletic Evolution also sets the Junior Warriors program apart as it is one of the few junior hockey programs in the country that offers in-house, year-round physical training services to its players.
“Having Athletic Evolution on site to help train our players will be an invaluable asset to all of our teams,” said Andy Heinze, head coach and general manager of the Valley Junior Warriors. “Many of our players are looking to take their games to the next level, and the Athletic Evolution physical training regimen will put them in a better position to achieve our team and their individual goals.”
Owned and operated by former Reading High School and Syracuse University standout Erik Kaloyanides, CSCS, Athletic Evolution will lease the 3,000 square-foot training center located on the second floor of the Haverhill Valley Forum. The center will feature state-of-the-art equipment, and – in the near future – offer group and individual customized strength and conditioning programs to people of all ages and skill levels from the surrounding communities.
“We are thrilled to partner with Valley Associates and open a training center in Haverhill,” said Kaloyanides, CSCS, whose company specializes in training both male and female athletes of all ages and varying sports and skill levels. “We will now be able to offer superior training to not only the talented youth athletes of the Junior Warriors program but to individuals in the surrounding communities who might otherwise not have an opportunity to work with certified strength coaches.”
The Haverhill Valley Forum facility and the new Athletic Evolution training center are scheduled to open their doors on February 15.
