During the July School Holidays we wanted to offer something different for our current Junior Blues players, this year we’ve placed a bigger emphasis on the importance of Strength and Conditioning with our Senior Teams and the plan is to role that out across our entire Blues Program.

Today was the first step in that process as we were lucky enough to have Jay Ellis and Alex Saad from Woodford Sports Science Consulting come to Frankston Stadium (90 Bardia Ave. Seaford 3198) to host a free Introduction to Strength and Conditioning session for our Junior Blues players, parents and coaches.

The focus of the session today was on proper warm up protocol, strength and plyometric training, speed and agility and we finished with a quick presentation on sleep and nutrition.

Following tryouts the plan is to host a performance testing day so that we can then have personalised programs designed for all of our athletes and teams to complete during their pre-season and over the Christmas break.

We’ll have more information on that coming out shortly. Thank you to Jay and Alex for today’s session and thank you to all the players, parents and coaches that came along.

We hope those that attended enjoyed the day!
