The purpose of the Perfect Performance coaching internship program is to educate participants in all aspects of sports performance coaching. The desired outcome is to provide each intern with practical experience that will enable them to excel in sports performance coaching upon completion of their degree.

Perfect Performance, LLC is a full service sports performance training company offering strength, speed, and sport specific skill development services to youth, high school, adult, and professional athletes. Our services are offered in our 14,000SF facility located in Vienna, VA, as well as satellite locations in the Washington Metropolitan Area.

Interns will assist the Facility Director and Quality Control Specialist (QCS) in implementing a comprehensive athletic performance enhancement program. That comprehensive program includes learning through a curriculum dedicated to building proficiency in cutting edge athletic training techniques (which includes: acceleration, multi-directional movement, agility, top speed mechanics, Olympic weightlifting, and muscular strength & conditioning techniques). Interns will be required to participate in groups, observe Facility Director/QCS, and assist in coaching as part of their training.
