“Before entering the 2018 MLS Combine, Phase 1 helped reignite the fire and desire within me. This helped me become one of the most athletic players in my draft class.”

-Tristan Blackmon, Bishop Gorman, MLS Vancouver Whitecaps FC

“I came across phase one sports when I was in 7th grade and it has helped me tremendously to be in the position I’m in today”

-Tommy Pham, Durango, MLB Boston Red Sox

“Joining phase 1 sports was one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made. I started working with Phase 1 when I was 15 years old. With their help not only did i Improve my athletic ability, but I was invited to Nike Camps and combines that I would’ve otherwise never been invited to. Being a P1 athlete has helped me reach heights that most could only imagine. Receiving a division 1 football scholarship, and ultimately getting drafted into the NFL. For me, it was a Life altering experience.”

-Brandon Marshall, Cimarron, NFL Denver Broncos

About Phase 1 Sports

In 2003 Michael Waters started working with youth athletes in the Las Vegas Valley with one simple goal. "Help them get to the next level". Being a running back at UNLV, playing for legendary Coach John Robinson, he took his years of experience and set out to develop complete athletes.
As Phase 1 Sports continued to grow and successfully assist hundreds of athletes in getting to the next level, it was time to expand. Fast forward to 2022, Phase 1 now has three locations, two of which are in Las Vegas and one in Hawaii. As we continue to grow and help more people accomplish their goals, we also launched Phase 1 Online in 2021. P1 Online is an app-based platform that allows people to join the Phase 1 Family from anywhere in the world.

So as training advances and athlete development becomes more important, Phase 1 will continue to be a leader in the industry. Each location is built on world-class facilities where athletes have access to elite training as well as the best recovery services available.

So if your goal is to take your training to the next level, Phase 1 is the place for you!
