What people are saying about us:
I have had the sincere privilege of having my 11 year old son involved with The Edge Sporting Academy. I began this journey because my son, who loves football, chose not to play basketball this past season. He brought home a flyer for The Edge and thus began our journey. I was initially impressed by the facilities and the positive energy coming from the coaches and directors in the buildings. After a few weeks I began to realize what a great facility The Edge truly is. I asked one of the coaches about adult programs (that have since expanded) and he basically told me that their commitment was to the student athlete. In the short time we have belonged to the Edge, I have watched my son establish relationships, leadership skills, and athletic skills. Will, my son, has learned how to be a better student and son, if that was possible. His athletic skill sets have grown also but for me are byproducts of the teachings.
Coach Callahan and his staff exude such a positive energy and enthusiasm it is infectious. One evening I was particularly frustrated from a long day at work and the amount of children that were waiting on the sidelines their sessions to begin. I made a half sarcastic comment to Callahan that there were a lot of kids in the building. He responded by saying isnt the energy great. That is the Junior Edge program in a nutshell, great enthusiasm toward the development of student athletes.
I have also gotten the chance to get involved in discussion groups based around Coaching for Life. It has been great information and great sharing about parenting, coaching and leading. Mike Orazen has done an excellent job at putting together a program that challenges those of us involved to be better coaches, leaders and parents.
Overall, The Edge Sporting Academy has been an excellent athletic experience for not only my son and the other young athletes that I have gotten involved with this program but it teaches them to be better students and people.

My name is Thomas Zapp, I currently play Middle Linebacker for the North Coast Vikings, a minor league football team based out of Northeast, Ohio . I have been lifting for sports, mostly football since the age of 12. In the last 11 years I have always used the classic football workout routines that involve a lot of Olympic movements and a lot of time spent not on the field, but in the gym. While most of these programs produced excellent gains in strength, it also took a big toll on your body and put a lot of stress on your joints.
Since I started working out with the Edge SPA and their trainers, in December 2006 my training has never been better. I have been able to produce more gains, more flexibility and speed with less wear and tear on my joints. With our games being played through the heart of summer and facing game day temps of 90+ degrees, my body has to be ready for everything. Using both the speed and strength programs I have been able to improve all aspects of my game on the field. Most notable I was able to lower my 40 yard dash time to 4.65, a full tenth less than when I started. The Edge programs have allowed me to train efficiently and effectively without wearing down my body.
My son has improved his health, speed, coordination, and most importantly, his confidence, while training under the consistently encouraging and positively demanding tutelage of John Callahan. Coach Callahan has given my son a glimpse of what he can achieve: he saw the spark of potential in my son, and ignited the flame of passion for what can be within him. Now my son is working hard toward the achievements of which all the coaches at The Edge believe he is capable. He is standing on the verge of his dream - of what I dare to say is every boys dream - to be an accomplished athlete. I am certain the coaching staff at The Edge will help him get there.
