athletic development camps

Brockville’s most extensive Athletic Development and Functional Movement Program. Our mission for this dynamic program is to educate both our community as well as the next generation of athletes on the transformative and lasting results of multi-dimensional athleticism. By fusing elite sports training methods with teachings on biomechanics and optimal physical literacy, we can broaden the athletic tool box to promote better, stronger, athletes 4Life. With this critical shift from sports specific training to long term athletic development and overall performance, our forward thinking training program will minimize burnout prevalent in young athletes and maximize longevity in adherence to sports/healthy lifestyle. Our goal is to combine mindset and movement – let us inspire our young athletes to perform locally and dream globally!

CAMP BREAKDOWN

The initial session and exit session will include assessment on speed (10 yard/40 yard dashes), jump performance (broad jump), agility testing (T-test/L-drill) as well as a customized functional movement screening system developed specifically for the needs of the group by our registered Physiotherapist. These two sessions will be dedicated to screening and evaluation to identify athletes’ goals, pinpoint areas of improvement in physical strength/mobility and guide focus for developing athletic ability. 

 

The six core training sessions will include sprint mechanics (learning the 3 phases of a sprint + how to accelerate, decelerate and transition while applying force into the ground in the appropriate manner) and jump/landing mechanics (teaching force application/absorption while serving as a long term injury prevention tool). These sessions will also introduce athletes to reactive agility, consisting of a variety of tailored and rigorous strength and conditioning drills.
