Altis’ semi-pro program was created to provide a viable option for athletes coming out of college to help them extend their athletic career. Many athletes need additional years of development before reaching their full potential; we are here to provide a bridge for such athletes – and to allow them to see how far their dedication, hard work and talent can take them.
The Semi-Pro program offers access to coaching, facilities and some medical access – at an affordable rate. It also allows these up and coming athletes to train around our full-time professionals and learn from their practice habits, work ethic and experience in the sport.
“We are very excited about this group of incoming athletes” said Recruitment Director, Andreas Behm – “as you can see athletes from all over the country and walks of life have signed up to come train here. It doesn’t matter if you competed at a big or small school, Division I or Division III, or have been out in the real world for a couple years. If you bring the commitment to learn about your sport and the desire to work hard to improve, then you are welcome here.”
