Advance Sports Technology (AST) announced that it will be opening the AST Academy inside the Next Level Sports Complex in Garden Grove, California. “It has been a goal of mine to find the right venue to open our AST Academy, and the Next Level Sports Complex was perfect for our Mental Edge training center,” Madrid said.

AST will open for training sessions some time in May 2016. The Academy is specifically tailored to athletes age 13-18, in addition to coaches, parents, and officials. Classes are currently being scheduled and dates will be released in just two weeks.

“We are very excited to bring Madrid’s AST program to our complex and to be a part of AST’s vision to impact the culture of youth sports,” said Jason Brennan, CEO of Next Level. “I have not only been a fan, but a student of AST’s program for over 15 years. The quality of AST’s programs will bring an added value to our customers, the student athletes,” Brennan went on to say.

AST’s Mental Edge programs have increased individual and team performances for more than three years, with teams that include the Seattle Sounders’ FC professional and academy soccer teams, Cal State University Fullerton, Seattle University, Long Beach State University soccer teams, and many youth soccer and volleyball clubs.
