FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

Can I attend practice at both locations?

Yes, you can. We currently have athletes that train at both locations or athletes that live in the middle of both locations and train at either Miami Lakes or Tropical Park. Saturday practices are really for both groups to attend. 

What time of year do you have the program?

Miami Elite is a year round program and has open enrollment throughout the year.

What do I need to bring to Practice?

-Drinking Water
-Athletic Attire
-Running Shoes / Sports Shoes
It is recommended that you bring a stretching / yoga mat as we do exercises and stretches that require going on the grass.

Does my child need to attend all practices?

While we do encourage you and your child to stay consistent with the training to be able to achieve results practices are not mandatory. Attending practices sporadically while not doing anything outside of practice (not going to practice and not exercising on your own while you are not attending) will not help an athlete reach their potential. 

For beginners we recommend at least 2-3 practices.
For more advanced athletes in Middle School or High School beginners we recommend 3-5 practices.
For highly advanced High School & competitive athletes 4-6 practices
It is not required to attend all of our scheduled practices. The number of "practices" above can also be done on your own, our coaching staff can instruct you on what to do if you cannot attend our practice. 

Are there other kids my child's age?

Yes, our program has kids ages 6-18. We may also have athletes ages 19-23 at certain times of the year. Based on our numbers our main age group are ages 9-15.

Information about the possibility of Practice Cancellations due to Weather:

Practices are only cancelled in the event of extreme bad weather. Which may include:

-Thunderstorms

-Heavy Rain

-Hurricane / Tornado or other extreme weather watch


In the event of extreme bad weather that may present itself once practice starts we will stop practice and seek shelter. Once in the shelter if it is safe to exercise we will modify our training to include a routine that could be done inside.


We may still be able to host practice if we have access to a safe area that is sheltered in the event of heavy rain. Safety is our #1 concern with our athletes.  


Stay tuned to our Home Page announcements via Twitter or by going on the NEWS section of our website via our Twitter feed for the latest information regarding practice announcements due to weather concerns.




Extreme Bad Weather HOURS PRIOR doesn't constitute a cancelled practice.


While we understand that some athletes may live far and need to know ahead of time about practices due to weather concerns most of the time we can only estimate weather patterns for our practice locations 30-45 minutes PRIOR to a scheduled practice. Just because it is raining by your house doesn't mean that it is or that it will rain at our practice locations.

 

In the event of inclement weather at Tropical Park we will utilize the Equestrian Center which is under cover. At Barbara Goleman Senior High School we do not have many options to host a practice under inclement weather.
