Sussex Performance Centre

Youth Athlete Strength Programme

Join our newly anticipated strength and conditioning programme starting this July, run by SPC Performance Coach Harry Short.

Does your son or daughter play sport competitively? Are they looking to develop their physical capabilities to improve their overall game?

Our 6 week training programme offers this unique experience for children to improve their movement capabilities in a structured, safe and welcoming environment.

Well-structured strength and conditioning programmes for adolescence have been shown to have a positive impact on academic success and sports performance.

One of the long-lasting benefits of engaging in properly supervised S&C is increased longevity in sport and injury resilience. This does not only ensure long-lasting sports participation, but continued social development and positive mental well-being.

Programme Objectives

  • Develop strength, speed, power and agility
  • Improve motor skills and coordination
  • Improve injury resilience and bone density
  • Education on healthy lifestyle choices
  • Improve confidence and work ethic
  • Monitor and track individual athlete progress
