    what people say


    I am incredibly grateful for the time he has invested in me and knowledge he has shared, from my first gym session in Year 9 where I was unable to complete a single press up or pull up, through to the stage I am at now, pursuing my dreams to become a professional athlete in Year 13.
    Tom Addison
    1st Team Rugby Captain / Framlingham College
    We have felt a huge positive impact on all our hockey players here at Framlingham College. From a personal perspective as head of hockey, athletic development has helped to develop so many of our players physically, which, I believe has had a direct correlation to the outstanding results we are now producing on the pitch plus the increasing number of International representatives.

    FAQ


    Successful athletes are taking part in strength & conditioning activities more often than others. The optimal number of training sessions varies for each person according to the age of the athlete, their goals and schedule. As a guide we recommend 1-4 hours of dedicated strength & conditioning each week for continual and quality progress. This time is made up of physical training and recovery methods.

    Members of BAA have access to our exceptional training facilities in Ipswich, please see our contact page for our locations. Our coaches also visit venues around Suffolk delivering coaching to individuals and teams.

    Yes, strengthening muscles, ligaments and tendons, improving bone density, improving mobility, enhancing speed and developing more control over their own body will transfer into all-round better performance across any sport. We believe by improving athletic qualities, especially from an early age, young people become more mouldable, experience quicker learning and are able to execute sports skills with more precision and greater consistency.

    No. In fact there is significant research showing that age-appropriate and correctly designed and coached strength training exercise can help towards improving bone and connective tissue growth and overall development in young children.

    There are factors we consider when working with boys and girls including our approach to coaching and the potentially vast differences in physiology and anatomy between males and females. However, boys and girls can still train together in the same session.

    No. We help young people start with us from a wide range of abilities, sporting backgrounds, experiences and physical capabilities.

    We first have juniors take part in structured athletic development related activities from 8 years old. At this age, children have the ability to take instruction and act upon it. Starting to build athletic foundations from a young age actually enables the child to further open their potential for athletic greatness as they grow into teenagers and adults.

    Parents are always informed and know exactly what their children are doing during strength & conditioning sessions. We communicate from daily to weekly and provide athlete reports detailing progress and the steps to take to continue developing.

    Actual duration of sessions will differ inline with abilities, timeframes and goals, however between 30-60 minutes is an acceptable timescale for juniors.

    Coaching is available on each day of the week both during term time and in the school holidays including half terms and the summer break.

    In a good way, yes! Whilst the body gets stronger and fitter, young people are able to execute high skill sporting actions with greater integrity throughout and for longer periods of time.

    We certainly do. Good communication between us and sports coaches is vital for an all-round and sustainable approach for juniors.
