The Council Bluffs Soccer Club has announced a partnership with Level 10 Performance, owned and operated by Judd Hawkins, to provide speed and agility training and personalized athletic performance programming in the new Iowa West Sports Plex. The Sports Plex is an Iowa West Foundation initiative and will open July 6, 2020, with a grand opening and ribbon cutting to follow later in the month.
"The Iowa West Foundation and the Council Bluffs Soccer Club have teamed up to create an amazing opportunity for our youth sports community, and I am beyond ecstatic to be joining this venture, and to bring my passion for helping young athletes. Level 10 has had the privilege of working with over a thousand athletes in the Southwest Iowa area over the last 3 years, and expanding into an amazing new facility will help Level 10 continue to grow the number of athletes we can reach!",” Hawkins said.
Hawkins, a southwest Iowa native returned to the Council Bluffs community with his family in 2016. His business, Level 10 Performance, specializes in training athletes who have a passion for gaining a competitive advantage through improvements in speed, acceleration, body control, and power development. His sessions with individuals, small groups and teams provide tailored plans for athletes at all stages of development. Hawkins experience includes work as a strength and conditioning coach with professional baseball teams and collegiate programs and is a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) through the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
“We are so excited that Judd will be operating Level 10 Performance in the Iowa West Sports Plex. The opportunity to provide additional programming of this level for local athletes is a perfect fit for the facility and our organization,” said executive director of the Council Bluffs Soccer Club, Arian Haddix. “His knowledge and professionalism will be a huge asset for our members and we look forward to our partnership to provide programming to area athletes”.
