The Academy of Excellence provides world class strength and conditioning coaching.

The programming has been designed to assist young athletes in their chosen sport and has been developed by some of the best strength and conditioning coaches in the area – if not the world!

The Academy of Excellence has been created for young elite athletes in the area to develop their sporting skills and fulfil their sporting potential.

Individual specialised training programmes are tailored for each participant, and a dedicated coach assigned to supporting strength and conditioning. At The Academy you will have the ability to meet and train with other like-minded athletes.

The Academy’s main goal is to improve athletic performance, reduce the risk of injury, and condition our young athletes’ bodies in preparation for their sporting goals.

We currently work with athletes across all sports including netball, soccer, rugby, rowing, squash and triathlon. If your child is serious about a chosen sport and would like to develop their potential, the Academy is the best place to start. We’d love to get you started with us today!

By joining the Academy of Excellence, our local young athletes can expect:-

1. An Academy coach to sit down first with the athlete and their parent/s and discuss their individual needs, what they feel their strengths are, what they would like to improve on, current training, previous injury etc.

2. A coach to perform a movement assessment and build a strength and conditioning program based on goals and what the athlete can achieve in their movement patterns.

3. A coach to create a specific program for athletes to complete (this will vary based on whether they are in-season, pre-season, recovery phase, strength phase etc).

4. Full access to PROACTIVE24 Health and Fitness to carry out their training
