PHYSICAL PREPARATION

The aim of the SWAS Strength and Conditioning (S&C) program is to educate athletes on the importance of S&C as both a performance enhancing and injury prevention measure.

Each partner sport program has a set S&C schedule based on the needs of the sport. S&C Sessions address the components of fitness specific to that sport and take into consideration the development level of the athlete, current training load and competition period of that sport.

The S&C team work closely with the sports physiotherapist, program manager, state body and expert coaches to develop and monitor a program for the sport. This coordinated approach encourages the delivery of a safe and specific program consistent with those being carried out at the highest level.

S&C sessions run from late February – December.

No S&C sessions are run over school holidays or on public holidays.

All athletes will be assigned a local gym venue for supervised strength and conditioning sessions by SWAS sports scientists and trainers, delivered weekly.
