​Sport-Specific Training Programs

A the MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we offer training programs to help athletes of all skill levels improve in a wide range of sports, as well as for those who want to lose weight and live a more active, healthy lifestyle.

Baseball

Do you want to throw harder, hit the ball farther and steal more bases? We'll teach you all the tips and tricks to maximizing your performance. Our sports performance specialist Nick Hedgecock, a former collegiate baseball player and record holder, will help you develop strength, explosive power and the core stability to make the toughest plays look easy.

At the MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we use Dartfish, a state-of-the-art video recording program that analyzes your movement. We can examine your throw, your swing and how you run and then offer exercises so you can maximize your potential. We can also create videos you can use to attract scouts and coaches looking for high-caliber talent.

Basketball

Physical conditioning is one of the keys to success on the court. Great training improves performance but it also reduces the risk of injury. Our basketball conditioning program is based on the same training techniques NBA players use. Our director of sports performance, Tommy Boyer-Kendrick, was a strength and conditioning coach with the Orlando Magic and Phoenix Suns during his coaching career. He uses the same fundamental training techniques with you as he used with Shaq, Shawn Marion and Stephon Marbury.

Regardless of your skill level, we have a program that will increase your speed, agility, explosive power, reaction time, balance, strength and stamina. We can help you develop that quick first step, increase your vertical and improve your defensive footwork.To enhance our coaching, we use Dartfish, a state-of-the-art video recording program to analyze your movement.

We train athletes in one-on-one, small group or even team sessions, and we try our best to accommodate special requests — in fact we even have a few parents who work out with their kids. Learn how to be a better, tougher athlete. Your hard work will pay off on the court.

Football

Football is a violent, combative game. It takes tremendous physical strength and stamina to endure the hits and collisions on the gridiron. At the MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we will condition you to endure the intense demands of the sport. Our training program is designed to help you improve your speed, power, agility, explosiveness, strength, balance, coordination and reactive abilities on the field. At the same time, your superior conditioning will reduce the risk of injuries.

Our director of sports performance, Tommy Boyer-Kendrick, has trained over 100 NFL players and hundreds of college Division I football players. Currently, he directs training for the Spokane Shock, 2010 AFL Champions. With almost twenty years as a professional coach, Tommy provides knowledge and expertise that is unmatched by any other training program in the Spokane area.

We train athletes in one-on-one, small group or even team sessions. No matter what your needs are as a player, we'll customize your training to facilitate your growth and development as a football player. We look forward to helping you dominate the field and make those big plays.

Golf

Taking a few strokes off your game feels great, and your physical ability has a lot to do with what happens during the golf swing. Our specialized program is focused on enhancing your mobility, strength and balance to give you greater distance and control in your golf game.

We are not golf instructors or swing coaches. Our program is based on the principles taught at the Titleist Performance Institute (TPI). With a professional, scientific model for training, TPI is the world leader in golf conditioning. And our program is not just good for your golf game — it provides a great workout. The training process begins with an individual assessment. During this process we use Dartfish, a state-of-the-art video recording program to analyze your movement, teach proper mechanics and design a customized workout program.

We also work directly with golf professionals in the greater Spokane area who want to improve their swing and enhance their physical conditioning — key to gaining the competitive edge.

Snow Ski and Snowboard Performance

Tired of going home stiff and achy? Wish you could spend more time on the mountain?

Now you can! With our professional help, we'll give you everything you need to create a more durable, flexible and stronger body to power through the moguls and tackle the steep downhill courses. Whether you're a beginner on the bunny hill or an experienced winter athlete, we have a program just for you.

Soccer

Explosive speed, great footwork, agility, coordination, strength and endurance are just some of the attributes of a successful soccer player. At the MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we have athletes as young as six years old doing physical training. Foundational to our program are the fundamentals of movement mechanics and motor development. We focus on enhancing your running form, jumping technique, coordination and balance. Once you master those skills, we'll help you tackle more intense training. It is an amazing process to watch the evolution of an athlete over several years.

One of the most important reasons for strength training and conditioning is to prevent injury. However, general fitness alone does not get the job done. Working hand in hand with our orthopedic and physical therapy providers, our sports performance team has developed the most comprehensive, effective and safe method for training athletes. Parents and coaches from around the community send their athletes here because the workouts are intense, fun and very productive.

Our director of sports performance, Tommy Boyer-Kendrick, has coached over a hundred Division I and professional soccer players from around the world. He was the physical trainer for PAOK, a professional Greek league, from 1996 to 1997. He was also a consultant for the 1994 USA World Cup soccer team. Tommy has brought his extensive experience to the Spokane area, and now our training programs are simply the best you can find in Spokane.

Softball

At the MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we have specially designed programs for softball players of all ages, for both slow and fast pitch. Whether you play competitively or in coed leagues, this is the place for you. Our professional trainers will assess your fundamental skills in order to give you what you crave: success on the field.

From the crack of the bat to the pop of the glove, take your softball game to the next level by developing a fundamentally sound body capable of exploding and reacting quickly to each play. Softball is a game based on strong fundamentals. Once the ball is in play, there is no time to think. You must react. With this in mind, we have taken the game and broken it into pieces to transform you into a solid player from the ground up. Through our training program, you will develop stronger arms and legs and a stronger core — key components in the ability to swing the bat explosively and make those impossible throws possible. With our high intensity training, your body will respond and conquer every challenge your opponent can throw at you.

Tennis

The physical demands of tennis are great, and physical conditioning is a big part of your success on the court. Whether you play in a women's league or a senior league or aspire to play at nationals or in college, we will provide you with the best training Spokane has to offer.

We will help you enhance your speed, strength, agility, balance, coordination and flexibility through plyometric exercises, functional and core training and stabilization skills. Our trainers have extensive experience working with tennis players of all ages and skill levels.

Volleyball

Physical conditioning for volleyball includes much more than just jump training; it focuses on speed, agility, shoulder strength, arm velocity and more. At MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center, we've developed the most advanced volleyball training program offered in Greater Spokane. Some of the region's best players have trained with us and have achieved incredible results. It is not uncommon to see a two- to three-inch improvement in vertical jump in just weeks.

From U10 to U18 club teams, we customize your training program to fit your needs. We offer one-on-one, small group and team training sessions — we'll even travel to a practice location if possible.

Our director of sports performance, Tommy Boyer-Kendrick, has trained hundreds of volleyball players, including many college and professional players. His volleyball knowledge and expertise is unmatched.

Our Technology

One of the keys to our success at MultiCare Rockwood Sports Performance Center is our use of advanced training technologies for all our clients.

Dartfish

Dartfish is a state-of-the-art program that allows us to analyze video-recorded movement frame by frame. It's a great learning tool because we can show you exactly what your body is doing from the beginning to the end of a motion. This program also allows us to compare your athletic movements with the movements of competitors — or your own from a prior time.

Using this technology, we can help you:

  • Shave time off of your 100 meter sprint
  • Jump higher
  • Become more explosive
  • Throw harder
  • Become less prone to injury

VertiMax

We utilize the VertiMax Jump Training System in order to increase lower body reactive power. This is a great tool to add inches to your vertical and increase your power output and endurance. As soon as you step off this machine, you will feel the difference. VertiMax allows our athletes to confidently step up their game on the basketball court, on the volleyball court and on any other type of playing field. Coaches will take notice of your improved explosive jumping ability.
