YOUTHSPORT is a 12-week small group training program designed to help youth athletes (ages 11-16) meet the physical demands of their sport. 75 minute sessions focus on developing physical attributes that are fundamental to sport performance, such as speed, agility, strength and power. Participants are grouped according to their developmental age, with different emphases for pre- and post-pubertal athletes.
The SCIECNED Atheltics YouthSport program is driven by the research of the Canadian Sport Centres Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) expert group. This research has led to the development of the Long Term Athlete Development model and offers a framework to understand adolescent growth and development. Based on determination of a youth athlete’s Peak Height Velocity (the time at which children experience the fastest rate of growth in stature during adolescence), critical periods of growth can be identified and training adapted and modified at these times to maximise athletic development and reduce injury risk.
