Strength and Conditioning stages

Optimal preparation is crucial to success within the performance model. A high attention to detail is taken to ensure the maximum possible opportunity for development. This requires collaboration between S&C, sport specific teams and development/national squads to collectively combine factors including number of training hours and loading, fitness testing results, recovery status, nutrition and psychological aspects of performance for each individual athlete.
