We are dedicated to the holistic athletic and physical development of young people. Our passion is making champions in the gym, in sport, and in life; while building an environment for all youth — both athletes and non-athletes alike — to aim higher, work harder and be better. We utilise the highest quality coaching with exercise science principles specific to youth and their progressing stages of development to optimise physical development and sport performance, while also reducing the chance of injuries.
Our athletic development training programs focus on the development of the physical qualities that underpin all sports and are essential for optimising sports performance while reducing injury rates. Students develop qualities such as speed, strength, mobility/stability, endurance, agility and coordination. Our programs are run through St. Andrew’s Anglican College and Outside The Box Gym and are open to all students throughout the Sunshine Coast, no matter their level, experience or age. Classes run from Monday through Friday during term — both before and after school — as well as specialised programs throughout the school holidays.
SEMI PRIVATE TRAINING
This program is specifically designed for high-level athletes of any age, plus those needing to rehabilitate from injury, or anyone looking for a more personalised approach. Prior to each class, athletes have their programs created and ready to go. Throughout the class, athletes run through their individualised programs under the guidance of our coach. Athletes are able to track their progress, monitor training loads and get the specialised training they need to maximise results.
GROUP ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT
Small group training where athletes learn the fundamentals of gym training, helping them improve their health and fitness while also developing their sporting performance and reducing risk of injury through improved strength, mobility, speed, agility and endurance.
SPORTING CLUBS AND TEAMS
The world’s best sporting teams and the most successful sporting organisations all invest in the physical development, athleticism and injury prevention of their athletes through utilising qualified strength and conditioning experts and performance coaches. Here at the Youth Athletic Development Academy, we bring years of experience in the development of youth athletes and teams — focusing on bringing their performance to the next level. From swimming, soccer and tennis to rugby, netball and basketball; our dedication, experience and qualification makes us the number one authority in youth athletic development.
We use sport and exercise science principles tailored to each sporting organisation’s specific needs, designed to give athletes the edge against their competition. We’ll give your athletes the knowledge, skills and practical experience needed to optimise their performance, reduce risk of injury, excel in sport and develop successful sporting careers.
Athletes will learn about injury prevention, athletic development training, psychology and mindset, nutrition for performance, recovery and warm ups and cool downs.
Athletes will also get the opportunity to run through our battery of performance tests, identifying their strengths and weaknesses regarding their physical development and capability.
Performance testing is an excellent tool for coaches to utilise in order to gain an understanding of the physical strengths and weaknesses that their athletes have. Coaches can then use this information to give direction to their programming in order to develop upon each athletes weaknesses while continuing to facilitate their strengths.
Our qualified strength and conditioning coaches and performance testing technicians will come to your club, school or organisation and execute testing. Following this, athlete reports will be emailed to each individual and their coach, discussing their results. Results are then able to be tracked and monitored throughout the athletes career.
We measure athlete profile, movement competency, flexibility, reactive speed, speed and agility, power, strength, strength endurance, anaerobic conditioning and aerobic conditioning.
