Erica believes athletic development takes time, patience, and work ethic, but the process is meaningful and fulfilling. It’s an oscillating, imperfect journey with ups and downs, twists and turns, and defeats and victories.

The best part, however, is the lessons learned through training help empower kids physically and mentally, while setting them up for lifetime resiliency.

We will be discussing:

  • Long Term Athlete Development for kids
  • The importance of developing proper movement skills
  • Finding joy in fitness and working out
  • The role of the coach in developing a positive learning culture


Erica Suter is a youth soccer strength and conditioning coach who has been working with youth athletes in speed, strength, power, and physical literacy development for eight years.

Her mission is to ensure kids lean into the gradual, long-term process of physical development, stay resilient to injury, improve performance on the pitch, and learn to love movement and fitness for a lifetime. In addition to working with hundreds of youth athletes in Baltimore, MD, she consults worldwide for individual athletes and teams for comprehensive youth strength and conditioning programming.
