DURHAM —Something’s missing in youth sports in Durham, former Duke football player Desmond Scott said.
He said he’ll fill in the blanks.
"I honestly believe that as far as middle school and high school athletics, the teaching of the sport and weightlifting are not there. At Prime Institute, we take pride in teaching," said Scott, who grew up in Durham and played football at both Southern and Hillside high schools.
Scott owns Prime Athletic Training & Fitness Institute (patfi.com), located at 3400 Westgate Drive.
“Slowly but surely, personal training is taking over, and everybody can’t afford it,” Scott said.
Toward that end, Scott is partnering with Duke Sports Science Institute for a July 25 workout session focusing on power, speed and agility for athletes in all sports in grades eight to 12. The session, from 8-11 a.m., is limited to 40 athletes. The cost is $99. More information and a registration portal are available at patfi.com
