About Us

At Santa Clarita Sports Performance, our mission is to develop the world's fastest and most well-rounded athletes, both on and off the field.  We believe it takes more than just physical training and skills to reach the highest level.  We train our athletes to be the best they can be in every area!  At SCSP, there is accountability for every athlete that walks in the door.  We care about your character just as much as your success!  

Who we are:

Santa Clarita Sports Performance (SCSP) was established in January of 2017 by former NFL Pro, Cletis Gordon Jr., who is also the company's Performance Director.  Cletis has been training athletes for over 15 years, with an unconventional training approach that has helped his athletes to achieve rapid results and tremendous success.  Cletis retired from the world of Professional Football in 2013 after playing 5 seasons in the NFL; 3 with the San Diego Chargers, 1 with the Dallas Cowboys and his last with the Carolina Panthers.  He was previously the Head Trainer at Velocity Sports Performance in Santa Clarita, and decided to develop his own training facility when Velocity closed their doors in 2016.  Cletis has a strong passion for mentoring and helping develop young athletes into successful well-rounded individuals. He holds his athletes to the highest standard and helps them to develop their skills and character.  SCSP's unique Training Philosophy has been developed through Cletis' research, experience and application, over the past 13 years, and continues to produce promising results in every athlete that comes our way.  We are grateful for the opportunity to be able to serve the athletes and community of Santa Clarita Valley!
