Building a solid athletic foundation of strength, power, speed, mobility and injury reduction.

Each 60 minute workout is the perfect environment to introduce children to the correct gym culture. We focus on functionally sound movement training with a targeted approach on basic and proper technique. Strength, conditioning and mobility form the foundation of the youth programme over each training term, as the workouts become progressively more challenging once basic techniques have been mastered.

What will my child develop during each training term?

Strength Functional approach taught through instruction which focuses on upper and lower body plus core musculature.

Explosive Power Jumping and landing mechanics are mastered with a strong emphasis on medicine ball work and an introduction to basic plyometric drills.

Mobility Various forms of active/dynamic stretching and muscle activation exercises.

Injury Reduction Aim to identify and lessen muscle imbalances, with a key emphasis on balance and stabilisation ability.

SPC Youth follows a once weekly training schedule which is aligned with the school terms.

SPC Youth is divided into two training pathways; athletic and strength.

SPC Youth Athletic

SPC Youth Athletic is a dynamic and fun new youth class designed with long term development at its core.  Primarily, the programme focuses on improving athletic performance through structured resistance training, incorporating plyometrics, sprinting and robustness. Designed and implemented by experienced youth athletic development coaches, the program has been created to match the physical capabilities and ages of all athletes.

SPC Youth Strength

SPC Youth Strength has been a primary focus of our youth training programme since it started 4 years ago. The primary focus is to learn techniques and increase strength through our structured training programme for any individual, whether you are a beginner or have experience in strength training. This programme is designed to allow any children between the ages of 12-18 to firstly, learn the basics of strength training, and then progress it further under appropriate supervision in a safe and professional environment.

Please speak to a member of the SPC team to determine which group would be best suited for your child.

All groups are lead by Aarran Racine and Harry Coates, who both have unique experiences in professional and amateur sports, as well as Masters’ degrees in Strength and Conditioning. Their expertise provides your child with the knowledge to take their physical performance to the next level in a safe, motivating and enjoyable environment.

Our youth training camps are for 12+ year-olds.
