Business Partners Launch Ballers Youth Sports Training in Oakland Park

Business partners Grant Conness and Julius Jones announced the launch of their new sports venture, called Ballers Youth Sports Training. The duo created the training venture to help young athletes reach their full potential, both physically and mentally, a foundation they believe will prepare them for the highest levels of competition.

Jones had a seven-year NFL career as running back, most of it with the Dallas Cowboys and Seattle Seahawks. Using their combination of business and sports, Conness and Jones are excited to offer an elite training program for junior athletes looking to take their game to the next level. Each and every trainer with Ballers Training are passionate about helping young athletes, and go by the mantra, ‘Getting Youth Athletes Faster – One Step at a Time.’

The primary focus for Ballers Training is speed and agility training, which can help junior athletes learn how to use their speed and quickness in a variety of scenarios. Athletes can not only make gains on their speed, but they can also improve their cardiovascular health as well using the Ballers speed and agility training method. One of the benefits of Ballers Training is that junior athletes at any level can join.

Outside of speed and agility training, the program also offers strength, position and team training and is given access to elite nutrition education.

“Julius and I have been coaching our kids’ youth sports teams for years in Fort Lauderdale and realized the need in our community for a youth sports training facility,” says Conness. “A comfortable, safe place where kids can come to get faster and stronger and enhance their athletic skills for what it takes to compete at the next level or any level.”

Ballers Youth Sports Training, or also known as Ballers Training, originally opened up on March 1, 2021, and is located in Oakland Park, Florida. Their program focuses on providing elite training methods to junior athletes throughout the Fort Lauderdale area, no matter what level they are currently at. Training sessions are available for girls and boys – kindergarten through high school.

“As a former professional athlete, I have lived through what it takes to compete at multiple levels. I have always had a passion for helping individuals improve their fitness, reach their goals, and gain the mental strength they need to compete at any level. Ballers was founded on the principles of helping every athlete find their very best and empower them to have a belief in endless possibilities. We wanted the youth athletes in the Fort Lauderdale community to have the convenience of coming out and have the ability to train like the props by the pros,” says Jones.

Ballers Youth Sports Training is open for group sessions Monday through Friday from 2:45 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Junior athletes can also schedule private sessions with one of the elite coaches as well. They offer a complimentary first session to make sure the junior athlete enjoys the program.

In addition, Ballers will be holding a 4-week summer camp beginning June 7 at the Ballers facility and local field. To learn more about Baller Youth Sports Training, visit ballerstraining.com.
