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, but with consideration to athlete age and ability. S&C programs generally address the components of fitness specific to an athlete's sport and take into consideration the development level of the athlete, current training load and competition period of that sport.
The S&C coaches use information from musculo-skeletal screenings, fitness tests and feedback from athletes to develop and monitor athletes programs. 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 April - March during school term.
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.
