We see many high school aged athletes at our specialised performance centres. We understand the developmental stage of these athletes and the parameters in which to train and condition them. The programs include all of the following components to ensure a safe, motivating and effective training environment for your kids and students.
This testing measures things such as flexibility, power, agility, and speed. This testing protocol occurs up to 3 times per year. Acceleration has developed a database software which will e-mail the participant and his parents/guardian with the login details to view the results so that you and their family can see the improvements made in those areas. Included in the results will be a power rating (Score out of 700 points), which will give an indication of each person's overall athleticism rating.
These warm ups prepare the body and neurological system for the work load the athlete is about to perform. Our research has proven this method of warming up to be highly effective.
All sports require you to move quickly. Acceleration programs always incorporate drills to get the athletes moving their feet as quickly as possible and in a way that replicates the movements they make in their sport(s). We use ladders, cones, sleds, etc throughout the year to ensure that athletes do not slow down as they grow in height and weight.
Strength comes from resistance training. Using free weight and body weight exercises, our performance coaches will write, monitor and managed the athletes through their strength program. Each program is design to create a strong stable body that is more resistant to injury and more powerful and quick in competition.Core strength training in groups is great because it makes workouts enjoyable. Power training (Jumping) is fun and educational for the boys and girls. You would be surprised by how many people do not know how to jump and land appropriately. Strength training for athletes can have an amazing effect on sports performance and injury prevention. The sessions are held before and after school and run for 75 minutes for the senior level athletes (begin using free weights) and 45 minutes for the juniors.
Acceleration can help with the conditioning of your athletes as well. We have found that conditioning is usually a part of training with teams at practice and therefore, the athletes don't need any further conditioning.
We use various stretching routines and trigger point therapy to produce better results and to add to the education of the boys. These programs are designed for students from Grades 7 to 12. We can enhance the sports performance of the general student body or take a specific sport or team to the next level.

"Acceleration has evolved a training direction that is ideal for the development athlete. They are critically aware of the importance of an athletes’ ability to MOVE WELL. This training direction is critical in this early stage of an athletes sporting journey. Specifically, Acceleration has trained Rugby athletes from junior to Super Rugby standards by developing the strength, power and speed qualities necessary to perform at the highest levels. Acceleration’s ability to train the individual within a team is a true testament to the quality of their coaches and their training. I strongly endorse the ‘Acceleration Way’ for all Rugby players competing at every level." Will Markwick, Head of Athletic Performance, Western Force
