The demands of competition and skill based training on a young athlete are growing each year.
Many 14-year-olds play multiple sports, train every day and compete on Saturdays and Sundays, year round. It is great to see our youth so physically active, but this high level of involvement can come with consequences if they’re not exposed to the necessary guidance in their athletic development.
Typically the training provided by coaches is solely focused on the skill and fitness specific to the sport and not the foundation movements that can set them up for lifelong health, wellbeing and involvement in sport. Our Youth Athletic Development Program has been designed to fill this void and provide a platform for young athletes to reach their full potential. It is not just about setting them on a path to potentially become great athletes in the future, but more so about teaching them to develop the skills and attributes to prevent injuries, stay in sport for a long time and grow into well rounded athletes.
