Girton’s聽Emerging Athlete聽Program聽is open to all students in Years 5-8 who are interested in improving their sporting performance, regardless of ability or experience.聽Students undertake exercises & games to help develop strength, mobility, coordination and key movement patterns to help them learn about their bodies. This program’s focus is on body awareness, stability, balance and the prevention of ACL-related injuries. During these key years, we must establish effective motor control and maintenance of functional movement patterns to minimise the challenges associated with growth spurts. Addressing these key areas significantly reduces our risk of injury whilst playing sport.

Aims: When junior athletes move well, they already give themselves a competitive edge. We believe that the juniors who are the most athletic are also the most likely to produce standout performances. We first focus on laying rock-solid movement foundations that form the bedrock of strong, powerful and muscular athletes. Our program specialises in safe and progressive training through modified games and activities.

Our carefully developed programs look to improve the following key areas relevant to athletic performance:

  • Motor Control
  • Coordination
  • Balance
  • Stability
  • Postural Control
  • Running Gait

Cost: The cost of the program will be $148 per semester, students will undergo multiple non-invasive tests which include Movement Screens, Peak Height Velocity as well as Talent Identification.

Students will have access to Girton’s聽gym facilities during their training sessions and be coached by ASCA-qualified coaches.

Any questions regarding the program please give me a call or email.
