Emma Sturges, Strength and Conditioning Coach
Somerset's Strength and Conditioning Coach has been working with the Netball team ahead of competition in Townsville these holidays. The Swim Club swimmers have also been in the gym, starting a three-month long training programme.
Netball athletes have shown great dedication and consistency all year with the implementation of a Strength and Conditioning Programme prescribed from the results of pre-season physio screening and ongoing regular exercise testing. Injury prevention has been a major goal to ensure longevity for the players who have completed increasingly more difficult strength and stability exercises each week.
The team is now fine-tuning their physical performance before travelling to Townsville in the school holidays to compete in the QISSN competition. Good luck girls.
It is a full house in the Fitness Centre as the Somerset Swim Club enter a new 12-week strength-training block. These athletes work hard with twice weekly, 5.30am Strength and Conditioning Sessions to improve their performance in the pool. Athletes in this squad are competing at a state and national level.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
