“Integrated training is a comprehensive training approach that strives to improve all components necessary to allow the athlete to achieve optimum performance. These components include aspects such as integrated strength & speed training, reactive neuromuscular co-ordination etc.”
Boys and Girls Performance Training program
Our unique program deals with the physical development for boys and girls of all ages. Our small group daily sessions prepare, train and increase the level of performance in athletes. The process of training is targeted to improve the athlete’s performance in a competitive environment. We use integrated training methods to develop,monitor and improve all components necessary for the specific age group.
We process training to target and improve the performance of competitive athletes. Sports conditioning includes strength and aerobic capacity along with all aspects of fitness i.e. anaerobic capacity, repeated sprint capacity, change of direction, agility training, jumping ability, speed performance, flexibility, static balance, dynamic balance, neuromuscular coordination, strength and suppleness. We provide the following age specific programs to players and clubs.
- Strength – A personalized program which enables the athlete to maintain and improve functional strength levels utilizing body weight and calisthenics exercises.
- Integrated training – Performance and skill
- Fitness and Conditioning Program- Personalized programs to maintain the necessary cardiovascular levels.
Injury Prevention Programs
A risk factor can be part of a set of numerous causes, which interact together creating a sufficient cause, which in turn produce a sports injury. Intrinsic risk factors refer to the qualities of a given athlete such as age, gender, somatotype, physical ability or performance. In general there are a variety of factors that could eventually result to an injury in various sport disciplines of physiological, psychological, and anatomical nature.
We follow the latest prevention model that incorporates the ideas of efficacy,efficiency and compliance with the preventive measure that should be taken into account providing the possibility to effectively evaluate the impact of the employed training regimes for the injury prevention. We assist players and clubs with the following programs:
- Preseason testing/screening
- Anthropometric measures
- Periodization– Analysis of the schedule of competitions and training sessions. Before the beginning of the season and competition, it is important to carry out an analysis of the instances and conditions that could increase the risk of injury.
- Injury prevention program
Our methodological approach and function is solely based on accurate scientific procedures which are adjusted to the needs of the team/individual but also to the individual characteristics of the athlete. The protocol we have adapted is followed worldwide in team sports, and in particular in soccer, it has been well documented, and is accepted with minor variability from the sports related scientific community.
The protocol is composed of 5 phases:
Phase 1: Diagnosis
Phase 2: Physiotherapy
Phase 3: Rehabilitation Coach
The general rehabilitation process of the injured player with the improvements of all the elements that are needed per specific injury (i.e. condition, balance, core strength, eccentric strength etc.) starting from general to sport specific activities (pool, gym and field based) to the point that he is ready to participate in normal training sessions with the team.
Phase 4: Re-entry/ Participation in Teams training sessions
Phase 5: Return to Play in an official competition
