ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL - - Elevate Physical Therapy and Performance Training Center, located at 147 W Rand Road in Arlington Heights, is a state-of-the-art facility that offers expert physical therapy and rehabilitative services.  Elevate is teaming up with Chicago Young Americans for injury prevention and to maximize the team’s strength, conditioning and performance.


The CYA players will have access to scientifically proven sports medicine services such as the 3D Motion Analysis Lab, the High-Altitude Training Room and the Alter G Anti-gravity Treadmill. Elevate will perform gait analysis using 3D motion software to identify each athlete’s biomechanics and address any possible weakness. The Elevate team will then provide functional movement training to take this athlete to a new level of performance and fitness. 


Athletes will also have access to Elevate’s High Altitude Training Room. Elevate features the first high altitude training center in the Midwest. Training at altitude can produce a number of positive responses in the body for both endurance and strength. Training in hypoxic environments improves VO2 Max, metabolism and an improved blood buffering system.


CYA enters this partnership to create “Project V”, a complete sports science division that will track and monitor every athlete’s development as they matriculate through the Chicago Young Americans program. CYA will have hundreds of data points (On and Off-Ice) that will be used to monitor the movements of players within the program.


CYA Hockey Director Ryan Ward says “The Chicago Young Americans and Windy City Storm are ecstatic to announce the commencement of Project V. Project V is going to re-define the player development process for young athletes all over North America. This partnership with Elevate is another step forward for the new era of the Windy City Storm and CYA Hockey.”


The CYA program will benefit from working with Elevate’s team of physical therapists to develop comprehensive training programs and unparalleled recovery treatments to expedite return to play.
