Take part in our Youth High Performance Training holiday program, this September.
Our high performance youth training program provides an introduction to strength, conditioning, organised sport and healthy training. It is a uniquely designed program for secondary-aged teenagers (13-17 years) which takes place in an environment which is safe, educational, practical and inclusive.
The next program will take place in the September school holidays and is taken by coaches who currently work in high performance youth sport and students of Victoria University.
On the first day of attendance, all participants will undergo a functional movement screen. This test involves performing a squat, lunge, push-up, row and core exercise (i.e. plank hold) to determine safe ‘starting points’ in the gym.
These movements will be with body-weight only. No weights will be lifted during this screen.
Each day is then structured around four sessions, consisting of:
- 1 x strength session
- 1 x conditioning session
- 1 x organised game
- 1 x rest & recovery session.
Participants will be broken into smaller ‘working’ groups to allow for coaching and feedback at all times.
Each day is a progression from the previous so that at day four, each participant understands movement patterns, and has acquired skills in each exercise taught.
