Athletic Development Coaching (ADC) is the result of a collaboration of Mark Leibowitz and Sal Marinello, Sports Performance Coaches with over 50-years combined experience in designing and implementing programs, consulting and working with recreational athletes, active adults, athletes, teams and coaches of all genders, sports and ability levels. We make use of a variety of methods and strategies in order to help our clients improve. We combine state-of-the-art technology with unequaled ‘hands on’ experience to create a high-tech/high-touch program where the needs of athlete are what drive the programming.
Athletic Development Coaching can conduct baseline movement screening using the FMS System and a more in-depth evaluation via the state-of-the-art DorsaVi VPerform System, both of which provide a roadmap for designing programming and protective strategies. ADC is the only athletic development company in the area that uses the DorsaVi System.
Our methods allow us to efficiently and effectively work with teams and other large groups, providing athletic development training appropriate across the full spectrum of ages and ability levels, for both female and male athletes. Our goal is to enhance movement skills and in-game conditioning while creating a more resilient athlete and mitigate the risk of non-contact injuries.
