Parkview Sports Medicine Performance athletic development training is designed to improve Empowered athletes by maximizing their athletic potential. Our structured training program follows a progression from teaching proper technique to maximizing speed, strength, agility and power. Becoming quicker, stronger, more agile and more explosive means better performance on the court.
PSM Performance training also increases your durability and endurance, while helping lower your risk of injury during the club season. We partner with PSM Performance so that Empowered athletes maximize their ability and gain an edge on the competition. PSM Performance has trained dozens of college-bound Empowered athletes, and they can help develop the athletic tools needed to reach the next level.
The PSM Performance Training Philosophy
PSM Performance exists to build athletes from the foundation up, guided by our Long Term Athletic Development Pyramid. The pyramid provides a guideline for how we train athletes, beginning with foundational skills and building to top-end performance.
- Foundational Skill Development – the building blocks of athleticism
- Capacity Development – the ability to perform and withstand the stress of competition
- Acute Skill Development – producing force and reducing force (acceleration and deceleration)
- Energy System Development – sport-specific conditioning and fitness
- Top-End Skill Development – reaching the peak of your athletic capability

ONE NUMBER FOR ALL THINGS PSM: 260-266-4007.
PSM provides a certified athletic trainer (AT) for many Empowered training sessions. ATs provide immediate care and diagnosis of injuries, can help during injury rehabilitation and will connect you to other PSM services as needed.
Ortho Express is a specialized walk-in clinic at the SportONE/Parkview Fieldhouse providing immediate care for orthopedic and sports injuries. With orthopedic physicians on staff, providing diagnostics, x-ray, injections and even casting in-office, Ortho Express provides quick, comprehensive care for athletes and active individuals.
PARKVIEW ATHLETIC REHABILITATION
Parkview Athletic Rehabilitation (PAR) is solely focused on getting athletes back to the court after an injury. With the most certified sports clinical specialists in the region, you're in the most qualified hands when you're rehabilitating an injury with PAR.
PAR's clinics at both Empowered and the SportONE/Parkview Fieldhouse are conveniently located, state-of-the-art facilities where you can focus on getting back to the court.
PSM care navigators are here to help connect with any and all parts of the PSM team. They'll help coordinate and schedule appointments, answer questions and get you in contact with everyone from our Ortho Express staff to orthopedic surgeons.
If an injury strikes and requires an orthopedic procedure, PSM partners with the local orthopedic experts at Orthopedics NorthEast (ONE). ONE's subspecialized care model means that you work with one of their SportONE physicians, who are dedicated to repairing athletic injuries and returning them to their sports.
