Travis O’Connor of Thrive Fitness takes over as director of sports performance

August 16, 2021

NORTH SIOUX CITY, SD – We are thrilled to announce the exciting changes that will be taking place with our United Edge program. United Edge is our youth sports performance program that gives athletes an "edge" over their competition in their respective sports. Not only will athletes have the tools to triumph over competition, but through sports performance training they also reduce the risk of injury, improve their potential ability to master the specific skills required by their sport of choice, and be equipped to create more opportunities for advancement.

Thrive Fitness will be taking over the United Edge program for United Sports Academy, and they already have some big things planned. The new program will be starting September 7th. For further updates, follow United Edge on their social media platforms as well as check on the United Edge website.

Their sports performance programs will serve to lay the foundation for youth athletes in the Siouxland area. New United Edge Director, Travis O'Connor, states, "The aim is to build upon the athletic framework for athletes who are looking to have fun while improving in their respective sport(s) to the athlete with the goal of receiving a college athletic scholarship. Whether the athlete is in elementary or high school, we are here to work with athletes through foundation classes, Edge Elite (1on1 training) and position/sport specific sessions."
