“I’m a strength and conditioning coach at Coburn Football Club and also a strength coach at Inner Athlete. I decided to do this course as I wanted a broader understanding of all the different aspects of youth athlete development and just a lot more confidence.

I think the practical applications of this course were super helpful so that going through different drills and being able to implement them after theory has been discussed and also just having an open floor for discussion and asking questions as well. I say just do the course as it’s so helpful for your own confidence and just understanding all the different aspects of athlete development.”

“I been a strength and conditioning coach for the past 3 years. The reason why I’m doing this course because as a youth I didn’t have all the information given to me about sport and youth athlete development. Now as a young adult, I want to express myself to other youth athletes and show them exactly how they should be training and the way in which they should be applying that to their sports.

Some of the benefits in attending this course is getting the knowledge for developing youth athletes from a young age and they can transition to young adults; awesome knowledge about how to develop youth athlete in their performance, agility, power and strength training.

For those considering doing this course, I think it’s a great way to get insight of how athlete development should work in regards to speed, agility and power and also to understand why youths should be training from a young age in order to benefit themselves for their future endeavours.”
