Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Program: 16yrs & under

The LTAD Program is designed for emerging athletes who want additional support to assist them in their athletic and sporting development. Adolescence is a critical period of growth and a time where teaching the correct way to move not only aids to reduce injury risk but also accelerates performance.

Our LTAD classes place great emphasis on the correct movement patterns and technique with fundamental strength exercises. This program is designed to challenge the young athlete but also provide them with the building blocks to progress onto more serious forms of strength and conditioning in later adolescent years.

At Bounce Health Group we have been working at the pointy end of sports medicine with junior athletes for 15+ years and understand that young athletes are not the same as adult athletes. Too often we see junior athletes presenting with bone related stress injuries, or persisting growth plate related issues that could have been avoided with better movement patterns, a tailored strength program and the right advice around load management.

It is apparent now, more than ever, that many kids are taking on too much, being pulled in so many different directions, and their bodies are not equipped with the strength and resilience to cope. Injury rates such as ACL’s are at an all-time high in junior sport and there needs to be more programs in place that help young athletes move better and get stronger. We have seen many top athletes over the years fail to fulfill their dreams, whether that be to make a rep team or a national team, as they have been overloaded in their developmental years, and never had a chance to succeed. It is seeing the same pattern repeatedly, year after year, that has led us to do something about it as a sports medicine clinic.

By introducing specialised strength classes, investing in the latest technology and research, we hope to make a difference, because nothing drives us more than seeing young athletes playing the sport they love and performing, rather than sitting on the sidelines injured, or never reaching their potential.
