Connect Sports Academy’s athletes are in the thick of their first off-season training programme at our home, Burgundy High Performance Centre (BHPC).
Double sessions have been the order of the day for our youngsters in recent weeks, but it’s about much more than pumping iron in the gym.
A group of our school-age athletes have even been introduced to the world of yoga thanks to BHPC’s resident expert, Tracy.
An hour-long session in the BHPC studio took them through breathing exercises as well as a range of postures.
They even had a head-start on some of the moves, thanks to our consistent use of mobility and movement in our training.
A big thank you to Tracy for bringing a new dynamic to our training here in Burgundy Estate.
Yoga is just one part of our training plan
Having our own high performance centre allows us to really step up what our young athletes can experience on our journey together.
This goes for their athletic training, as well as their growth and development away from the sports field.
And it doesn’t stop when our younger players return to their schools in January.
We’ll be kicking off our first coaching apprenticeship scheme in the new year with several of our post-school athletes.
