Program 3:
Teens Strength & Conditioning

This age group is a crucial time where we see a lot of drop out from sport and fitness. By providing teens with the confidence and skill to maintain their involvement in physical activity, we are providing them with the best tools to live a healthy and energetic life!

Our functional small group strength program is developed for pre-teens and teens 11+. Based off the results of head coach, Claire's PhD, this program utilises  age- and development-appropriate training to enhance sports performance, engagement in physical activity and support growth and development throughout the crucial teenage years. Efficient movement contributes to athletic performance, injury prevention & leads to habitual physical activity into adulthood.

Private Lessons

Some kids benefit from private training. These 45 min sessions will focus on technique or fitness requirements of the individual. Kids who have benefited from private training include:

  • Those preparing for regional or state events

  • Those who can't make it to a group

  • Those who are "sporty" but need a helping hand in running to enhance their sports performance in other sports

  • Those who need some extra attention in general coordination and physical activity
