WHAT IS THEIR GOAL?
Does your child enjoy Running or Athletics but feel they could benefit from coaching?
Does your child want to improve their stamina, technique or race tactics?
Do they have professional sports club trials coming up & they want to improve their speed?
DISCOVER HOW WE CAN HELP THEIR TRAINING
With athletes that are still physically developing we focus predominantly on skill development
We work on improving Fundamental movements including Agility, Balance & Co-ordination
We also develop your child's Running Technique, Proprioception & Neural Recruitment
DEVELOP FUNDAMENTAL SKILLS FOR FUTURE SUCCESS
WHY WE FOCUS ON SKILLS
We follow the guidance from the UK Athlete Development Model regarding Young Athletes:
- The Lactic Acid Energy System (used by adult sprinters) is not fully developed at this stage of development
- Training the Lactic System generates significant fatigue which impacts the ability to perform co-ordinated movements
- Previously co-ordinated movements need to be re-learned after periods of rapid growth & so until skills are re-mastered by athletes in their adult body shape, the focus on dedicated training of the Lactic Energy System should be a secondary consideration
SKILL DEVELOPMENT IS KEY IN YOUNG ATHLETES
Through a variety of fun games & drills we teach your child how to run with better technique
We show them which part of the foot is best to land on and how best to use their arms
We develop their Proprioception & Neural Recruitment to make them more efficient athletes
