The AFL players we see are developmental right through to elite players. They come to us as individuals to test and train at our Parkville centre. AFL athletes can also train under an Acceleration program at their club or academy. We even offer distance programs through online programs.
You can have a look at the sample we’ve provided below but basically our AFL specific speed, agility and strength training include everything you or your club needs. This includes things like dynamic warm-ups, conditioning, foot speed and agility drills (ladders, cones, etc) and weight training. Our coaches also monitor your movement patterns to ensure that you are stable and mechanically moving properly.
An Acceleration Training Program typically includes:
Each athlete is tested to measure speed, agility, strength, power and vertical jump. A video analysis is also conducted to find immediate ways to improve your running form. This testing session also enables your coach to detect any instabilities you may have in your form that could be holding you back or leading you towards a possible injury. The result of this testing session is a program written specifically for you and your goals.
Specifically we test:
– Anthropometrics (Height, Weight) – Function ROM/Manual Muscle Tests (eg Scapula Winging, Dorsiflexion, Prone Shoulder Elevation, etc.)
– Power (Vertical Jump, Medicine Ball Overhead Throw)
– Speed & Agility (20m Dash, Pro-shuttle)
Do you want to be quicker off the mark?
The testing session is a great way to start reaching that goal! Your AFL specific training program will make the biggest impact on your speed – among many other things.
Your customised Acceleration Training Program will include most or all of the following components:
- Deep System Integration Exercises
- Dynamic Warm Up
- Speed and Agility Drills
- Strength and Power Exercises
- Core Strength
