Valencia-based nonprofit organization SNAP Sports is proud to announce a new partnership with Afterburn Fitness in Valencia to help train special-needs athletes for hockey festival competition.

Afterburn Fitness will donate training time, space and equipment for the hockey team’s monthly dry-land training sessions.

SNAP Sports, the parent organization of the Valencia SNAP Flyers Special Hockey Club, is offering sports-based programming to athletes with special needs.

“We are so excited to bring our dry-land training to Afterburn Fitness,” said Chris Schrage, Hockey Director at SNAP Sports. “This type of purpose-built program is breaking new ground in terms of training athletes with special needs. We are continually seeking ways for our athletes to shatter the notion of limitations, and training at Afterburn will help us pursue that goal.”

Afterburn Fitness is a Valencia-based training center that believes fitness isn’t just about the destination, it’s about the journey. According to owner Tony Velasco, “It’s about pursuing passion, pushing boundaries, and defying the odds. What you are capable of is only limited by what you believe is possible. Remember that no matter who you are, how old you are, or where you are starting, there is an athlete in all of us.”

By blending industry-leading classes, coaches and trainers with all of the amenities of a high-end health club, Afterburn Fitness is redefining what a health club should be. Top-of-the-line sound systems and a full range of industry-leading equipment allow for an endless variety in training styles.

Afterburn Fitness delivers an experience that is unparalleled, comprised of a community of members, trainers and staff that inspire and welcome all newcomers into the facility.

SNAP Team training began during the first week of December at the facility’s Valencia location, and all costs for the training sessions have been donated by Afterburn Fitness.

Athletes are participating in a wide variety of cross-training techniques to develop and enhance their on-ice training.

By developing their physical fitness, SNAP athletes are building the confidence and poise necessary to manage their individual disabilities. It is clear that athletes who participate in regular, vigorous physical activity routinely improve the essential skills needed to manage their everyday lives.
