Parisi Speed School

Cathedral Oaks Athletic Club offers the only Parisi Speed School in Santa Barbara, a-one-of-a-kind youth athletic program founded by All-American track star Bill Parisi in 1993. Parisi Speed School provides athletes of all ages high-level training from certified athletic coaches. The school aims to improve performance in every sport from basketball to track & field to surfing.

How it Works
Each new rookie begins with an evaluation, where a series of speed and strength tests allow examiners to assess the athlete’s superpowers and competitive kryptonite. Speed seekers will be placed in a class level best suited for their age and ability where they will receive unlimited training for 1 month. 

Class Levels
For young guns finding their feet, the Jump Start program (ages 7–11) offers a fun and friendly environment to build confidence and a strong foundation for future physical feats of mythic proportions. For teens, the Total Performance program (ages 12–18) improves strength, speed, agility, and endurance. And for those who hold sporting aspirations beyond the high school gym, the P.E.A.K. program (ages 17+) helps the sports stars of tomorrow run faster, jump higher, lift heavier, and sign autographs more rapidly than ever before.
