I found it highly valuable in my development and it has opened up opportunities to me while I finish my degree. ~ Rebecca Brown

It’s also a great place to meet and develop relationships with other students who are pursuing a similar pathway. ~ Cain Yoshiura

It was really great that the course was run by someone that really knew their stuff and went beyond the required scope of the course content. ~ Sophie Pidcock

The S&C qualification has helped me not only in my own sport as an athlete, but also further cemented my understanding and knowledge learnt through theoretical lectures. ~ Ash Gunn

Swimming – Animal Movements Workshop

Most swimming facilities do not have access to strength & conditioning equipment so we have asked Rory Tims (Newmarket Racers) to explain his philosophy of using ‘Animal Movements’ (think: variety of bodyweight exercises that engages young minds).

Rory will take us through a typical session with

  • regressions and progressions;
  • how to modify each to change the stimulus;
  • how to make it fun.

ASCA Conference

PropelPerform will be at the ASCA Conference.

See below for topics I’d like to share, explore and discuss over a coffee.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAMS – Took my first intern in 2003. Have learnt a lot since then but think there is plenty I can improve on in preparing students for our profession.

ACTION SPORT ATHLETES – With 21 BMXers, plus MTB (XCO & CX) and Motorcycling athletes, I’d like to catch up with others who work with ‘non-traditional’ sports.

NUTRITION FOR HEALTH – Based on the philosophy that our ‘Athletes are people first’ I have spent the last few years really focusing on understanding and building healthy eating habits.

Unless you’re a rare independent thinker, am not interested in anyone with an Australian degree in nutrition/dietetics.

PREVENTING 21st CENTURY SOFTNESS – We could explore getting out of comfort zones, remaining mentally sharp, keeping standards high, etc.

EXPLORING – I’m playing with a few things that might be interesting… Research isn’t strong on them so looking to connect with those who can mix critical thinking with ‘open mindness’.

PRIVATE FACILITIES – Have been running my own facility for just over 2 years now. Have some info to share and plenty to learn.

Contact me here.

Will add as I think of things.

Junior Sport Science Symposium VII

This Junior Sport Science Symposium is aimed at helping Parents & Coaches who guide, coach, train and retain young athletes in organised sports.

In Australia there are many sports which have clear pathways through schools and clubs, which provide coaching, Strength & Conditioning and perhaps nutrition advice.

There are even more sports where the Parents/Athletes have to source their own coaching, employ their own Strength & Conditioning Coach and seek advice on how to progress.

However the are many questions Parents might not know the answer to:

  • When should your child begin a Strength & Conditioning program?
  • What should the program look like?
  • Who should you employ?
  • How do you know if the Coach has the right qualifications?
  • What should you expect in return?
  • What more can you do to help your Child/Young Athlete?
  • If there is a disagreement between Coaches, who should I listen to?

Each of the presenters are considered leaders in ‘physical preparation’ and will help answer the above questions and more.

1st Presenter: Grant Jenkins, PropelPerform

Grant will be discussing answers to common questions like:

  • How much should my child be training?
  • When should kids start resistance training?
  • How important are junior results?

2nd Presenter: David Ballard, Brisbane Broncos 

David is the Athletic Performance Coach for the Bronco’s Elite Player Development. He is tasked with developing the athleticism of young footballers in the Bronco’s system.

Tonight David will be chatting about what you should be looking for in a junior development program and the philosophies that underpin the successful Bronco’s program.

There will be plenty of time for specific questions and answers.
