On the last week of the Summer Session on Thurday August 22nd, there will be the complimentary testing for all athletes registered in the Summer Vigour Session from 3-5 PM. (Both regularly scheduled weight room sessions will be combined for the testing to start at 3:00) These tests will consist of anthropometry (Height/Weight/Wingspan) and the following 4 tests: Max Vert Jump (lower body power), T-Test (agility), 40m Sprint (max speed) and Beep Test (max aerobic output)
The Vigour Athlete Development Program provides a solid long-term foundation, decreases the risk of injury, and ingrains a 'sport for life' and healthy living philosophy. The program will enhance the young athlete's strength and speed with a focus on exercise technique and motor skill acquisition to supplement their sport specific training programs.
The Program includes Strength and Conditioning sessions in The Engage Sport North High Performance Center Weight Room, as well as Track sessions on the Indoor Track in the Charles Jago Northern Sports Centre to further enhance the Athlete's speed, balance, co-ordination and conditioning.
***ALL APPLICATION FORMS (downloaded on the Engage Sport North Website) MUST BE SUBMITTED BEFORE REGISTRATION IS CONSIDERED COMPLETE. Please email scanned completed forms to Dave Adolph before start of first session at email@example.com
Both Monday sessions will be a running/conditioning session led by the Engage Sport North Strength Staff. Proper running technique will be instructed along with conditioning sessions.
Every Tuesday/Thursday weight room sessions will start with a 5-10 minute dynamic warm-up with a variety of activation exercises that will be a progression of movements to build the foundation for all exercises done in the weight room and in the athlete's sport. The variety of activation exercises will help compliment various acceleration/deceleration, change of direction and agility skills. The weight room session will be based on primary sport movements with body weight movements and resistance exercises that will not affect the growing skeleton of this age range. Each session will conclude with a cool-down period of stretching and foam rolling.
Vigour Athletes may participate in days outside of the above sessions (e.g. 3-4 PM one day and 4-5 pm the other day) as long as numbers of athletes in the weight room permit for the original 2 session groups. This will be up to the discretion of Dave Adolph, but every effort will be made to accommodate each athlete's schedule.
