Welcome to CVASPS.com

I want to personally welcome you to our site and thank you for becoming involved.  Our goal is to provide you with the best information possible, both here on our site and at our yearly seminar held in Richmond, VA.  I am truly excited to be able to bring some of the best minds in our field to your computer screen and our facility, in order to educate performance coaches throughout the world so that our athlete’s can reap the benefits.  In the following weeks we will be posting interviews, articles and published research studies by individuals who I feel are the best of the best in our profession.  I hope that you find this information as useful and valuable as we have.  
Along with our web site, you will find all of the products from each of our presenters and contributors available for sale as well.  These people have spent their lives trying to find the most productive and efficient means of training athletes, so you will not find anything on this site that I personally have not read, do not own, and have not used on a daily basis in the training of my athletes. It goes with out saying that all of these resources are of top quality and highly recommended to anyone in our field.

I’d also like to take this opportunity to ask you to please “like” us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter and subscribe to our page on YouTube. All of the information on any updates, whether it be to the seminar, site or store, will be provided through those along with our news letter.

Thank you again for checking out our site.  I am sure that you will find what we provide to be the best information available in one spot on the web.
