Youth Athletic Development


Youth Athletic Development at ADPT by Cynergy

Our youth athletic development program provides a logical and evidence-based approach to the progressive development of physical performance in young athletes.

Our goal is to provide athletes with the fundamental skills that are needed to succeed and maximize performance in their respective sport. We have the ability to provide periodic and individualized programs that will develop strength, power and improve linear acceleration, multi-directional speed, footwork/agility, coordination, and endurance.

We aim to improve athletes’ athletic profiles and identify “red flags” or movement patterns that put athletes at risk. We will target weak links and implement corrective strategies through our physical therapy expertise that will improve movement efficiency, reduce injury risk and ultimately help them reach performance potential.

Youth Age Requirements: 10-18 years old


  • Long-term athletic development programs should accommodate for the highly individualized and non-linear nature of the growth and development of youth.
  • Youth of all ages, abilities, and aspirations should engage in long-term athletic development programs that promote both physical fitness and psychosocial well-being.
  • All youth should be encouraged to enhance physical fitness from early childhood, with a primary focus on motor skills and muscular strength development.
  • Youth athletes should participate in physical activities that help reduce the risk of injury to ensure their ongoing participation in sport.
  • The youth athlete will be provided with a range of training modes to enhance both health and skill-related components of fitness.
  • The program of the youth athlete will be individualized, systematically, and pedagogically progressed for successful short and long-term athletic development.

Dom is very nice and welcoming and more than anything, he pushses me to work the hardest that I possibly can and that's more valuable to me than anything.”

Lindsay Goodman, PT, DPT, CSCS

What People Say About Lindsay!

“I’ve needed and received physical therapy a number of times, but my experience with Lindsay has been superior! She is a cut above the rest. She developed and implemented a program to address my acute neck pain and long-standing (2yrs +) shoulder pain that has been effective! She is skillful in tailoring a program for me, responsive to my feedback and focused during our sessions. Even Lindsays tiny corrections to my form during movement have made a major difference in my understanding and ability to follow up at home. Attentive, thorough, skillful, personable and effective!!! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would, because she’s that good !”

Theresa B.

“I have been working with Lindsay since the beginning of the year and I have seen tremendous improvements with my ankle rehabilitation after a severe ankle sprain in just three months. Lindsay, as well as the whole team, is very professional and knowledgeable. They know what they’re doing and they want the best for all of their clients. I 100% recommend ADPT by Cynergy and Dr. Lindsay Goodman.”

Sean O.

“Every member of the ADPT team is professional and friendly. I have been working with Lindsay since August 2021 to recover after an Achilles tendon repair surgery. She is incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, and supportive. She is very detailed with tracking my progress and gives great feedback every session. I enjoy working with the entire ADPT team and highly recommend their services!”

Franceska Mia-Mona Règnier

Franceska Mia-Mona Règnier, PT, DPT

What People Say About Franceska!

"When I went to a doctor for my knee pain, he highly recommended ADPT. I was SO happy that he did!! Even when my schedule didn't always align with Lindsay's schedule, I was able to work with either Fran, Dom, or Alvin. Let me just say, I initially thought that working with different people might throw off my progress, but they are all so AMAZING, and so good at communicating and assisting each other that the transitions felt very smooth. About 4 and a half months later, I was free from knee pain, able to fully return to my old activities, but also doing way more than I thought my body could do! Thank you, ADPT Team!"

“I started coming to ADPT for an athletic injury to the knee. I’ve been seeing Luca for about 3 weeks and I couldn’t be happier with the treatment I’ve been receiving.
