YOUTH ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
The demands of competition and skill based training on a young athlete are growing each year. It is not unusual to hear of a 14 year old playing multiple sports, training everyday and competing on both Saturdays and Sundays all year round. While it is great to see our youth so physically active, it doesn’t come without consequence if they are not exposed to the necessary guidance in their athletic development. Often the training that young people undertake is solely focused on the skill and fitness necessary to the sport and not the foundation movements that can set them up for a lifelong involvement in sport. The lack of exposure to the right strength training and movement development, means these youth athletes may not optimise their performance, will be at greater risk to injury and have a higher risk of burning out.
The Aspire Youth Athletic Development Program has been designed to fill this void and provide a platform for youth athletes to help reach their full potential. It is not just about making them world beaters today but about them developing the skills and attributes to stay in sport for a long time and develop in to the complete athlete.
All athletes will undergo testing and screening protocols and will follow an individualised and periodised training plan that is supervised by our expert Exercise Physiologists.
The training program will look to enhance
- Movement efficiency and competency
- Power Output and Landing Mechanics
- Speed and Agility
Each athlete will also be provided with a high level of continuing education surrounding exercise technique and correct training practices in the gym. This will allow the athletes to gather all the information they need to help reach their potential.
