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.

Every Monday to Thursday weight room session 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.
The COVID-19 Protocol will be sent to all registrants.
