Preparing Athletes for Success
Roseville Health & Wellness Center offers the most comprehensive Athletic Development Program (ADP) for both off-season and in-season athletes. Athletes recovering from surgery or injury can also benefit from the on-site Physical Therapy program that, when appropriate, works in conjunction with the ADP.
AFP strength and conditioning coach Al Biancani, who has trained professional, collegiate and High School athletes for over 45 years (18 years with Sac Kings, Chinese Men's and Women's Olympic Basketball teams, Sac Monarch's etc.), will emphasize core strength, running mechanics, starting technique, strength training, agility, foot speed and flexibility for all athletes.
A few of the 2015/2016 athletes to participate in the ADP include:
Elite level high school quarterback who set numerous state and national records. In 46 games he completed 1191 of 1708 attempts for 16,775 yards and 229 touchdowns. He went on to become the first true freshman to start at QB for the Washington Huskies.

10 year old multi sport athlete participates in ADP 1-2x per week in off season learning running mechanics, core strength, speed and agility training, flexibility and proper multi angle movements.
