JUNIOR ATHLETES

ATHLETIC DEVELOPMENT FOR 8 TO 18 YEAR OLDS

Junior Athletic Development programs build the foundations of both a healthy lifestyle and optimal performance through childhood and adolescence, through fun, engaging and progressive coaching sessions. They are a perfect complement to young athlete’s sports training – allowing them to fulfil their potential – whilst also engaging children not so keen on organised sport.

SUCCESS STORIES

The session are brilliantly organised, fast paced and exciting for the children as well as being educational, helping them understand different aspects of the body and exercise including nutrition. My two have started their second term now and are thoroughly enjoying it”

Sam, Parent

“I love coming to the Academy twice a week – the exercises are much more fun than P.E. When I started I couldn’t climb to the top of the rope and now I can!”

Freya, 10 Years old

My children play rugby for Chippenham and Swim for Marlborough Penguins. Within weeks of starting the programme, my son had moved from half hour to hour lanes at swimming and his rugby coach had commented on a real change in his body shape, especially around the shoulders. My daughter has moved up towards the faster lane in swimming group and her front crawl arms stroke has improved massively.”
