"Most Talented Athletes Never Realise Their Childhood Dreams."
In Today's World Where More Is Better, The Right Physical Preparation Can Be The Difference Between Your Child Making It, Or Missing Out.
As kids, it's obvious to most parents that they should participate in a wide variety of sports -- exposing them to as many different opportunities as possible puts them in the best stead for adolescence. The more your young kids can run, jump, hop, swim and enjoy sports, the better.
But things get difficult during adolescence. Growing bodies become susceptible to injury; higher levels of sports demand more from our kids, and the pressure of progress starts to weigh down on our kids shoulders.
This creates an environment where most kids are set up to fail -- they are pushed too hard, for too long, until they break.
One of the best ways to manage the pressures of multiple sports, multiple training sessions, school and a social life, is to optimise their athletic potential... off the field of play. Helping athletes jump, land, run, push, pull and be injury resilient is one of the most valuable tools in a sporting parents arsenal -- it can keep them going while the kids around them take time off.
"We have had an outstanding experience at Athletes Authority. The coach to athlete ratio is excellent, there is a focus on injury prevention and programs are continually reviewed to ensure they are suited to the changing needs of each individual. The culture between athletes is supporting and encouraging which creates an inclusive environment among the athletes. Five stars!!!" - S Baker
"As a parent of a teenage athlete, I was wary of him being too young to start a strength and conditioning program. On meeting with Karl and the Athletes Authority team, their expertise and science-based approach allayed all of these fears.
Athletes Authority caters for all aspects of his fitness - regular performance testing, a tailored app-based training program, high end equipment, health food and supplements, Normatec recovery system, in-house physiotherapy (the list goes on).
Athletes Authority as a company operates with an athlete-first ethos.
Since he started last year, my son has developed close friendships with his coaches, who provide him with guidance, inspiration and camaraderie. Likewise, he is now part of a network of elite athletes from all walks of life. Not once have I had to convince him to go to the gym, the motivation Athletes Authority generates is undeniable.
This is the perfect environment for any athlete, regardless of age or discipline. And the proof is in the output, the year my son joined Athletes Authority has been his most successful year yet, not just in his chosen sport, but academically as well - an unexpected ripple effect." - P McCormish
"Wow !!! This place is next level in the world of strength and conditioning. My son has the privilege of training with these guys, the facilities, training and testing and support he is provided is second to none. I could not be more impressed with the programs, their attention to detail and safety of their clients is paramount. The trainers are amazing they have not only improved his strength and conditioning abilities but his confidence has gone through the roof - could not recommend highly enough." - S Blair
"Our son is an athletic talent who needed additional strength training for his further development. We believe we found with Athletes Authority the perfect place for it. He works with a very professional team who helps him based on his needs to work on his weak points and ensures that the focus is on the required skills for his sport. Also the support in a recovery phase was awesome. We are really happy with his progress and the professional support as well as he is motivated for the sessions!" - N Kurt
HOW IT WORKS
Our Emerging Athlete Program (EAP) improves athleticism to support the physical demands of sport as kids grow into teens. The EAP helps 8-16 yr old athletes of all levels bulletproof their weaknesses, decrease injury risk, and build strength, power and speed to set them up for long-term success. This program is one of only a few complete junior athlete development programs in Sydney. Here is how it works:
Design Your GamePlan™
There is an old saying: "what doesn't get measured, doesn't get improved." Through no fault of their own, emerging athletes are rarely provided with the objective feedback on their athleticism that they need in order to improve their sporting potential. Because of this, most junior athletes enter the later teenage years under conditioned, lacking physicality, and lacking athleticism. They feel slow off the mark and are regularly beaten by the more 'naturally gifted athletes'.
Our Emerging Athlete Program helps aspirational athletes stand out so they can emerge as champions. Measuring their current ability is the first step.
Over the course of this performance testing experience, we help our emerging athletes:
- Pinpoint their weaknesses that are holding them back;
- Identify the blind spots in their performance and discover how to turn them into opportunities;
- Reveal their X-factor and what they're already doing well.
By the end of the testing experience, we'll know how to plan their training so they can emerge as a strong, fit and resilient athlete.
Develop Your Winning Mindset
Most junior athletes are 'confidence' athletes. When they're confident, things go well. They play naturally and they walk away smiling. When they lack confidence, their performance really suffers. Their head drops, they play within themselves, and they fall out of love with the sport they enjoy so much.
Developing mental toughness through Mental Performance Training is the key to performing at their best during the moments it counts the most -- when things get hard and don't go their way.
We help our emerging athletes rise to the occasion when the pressure is on and turn dreams into reality through mental skills training that helps them develop the grit and self-belief to make it happen. Consider what the great Michael Jordan said:
“The mental part is the hardest part and I think that’s what separates the good players from the great ones.”
Just like MJ, Tiger Woods & Michael Phelps, all the greatest athletes realise that physical preparation is not enough to go from good to great. That's why all our athletes work on their mental preparation, as well as their physical preparation, developing positive routines and rituals, helping them deal with adversity, and improving their self-talk.
By the end of your first mental skills session, you'll be on your way to developing a winning mindset and will be ready to join our EAP.
Once your program has been designed and coordinated into your schedule, you'll be ready to get to work.
We'll Create Your Individualised Program
With the important foundations laid for success, we'll get to work designing your child's individualised program. This program will take into account their weaknesses, strengths and blind spots and seamlessly fit their training program into your life schedule. All their strength and power training, fitness and conditioning, and, sprint mechanics will be customised based on what they need to maximise their sporting potential.
Once your child's program is designed and coordinated with your schedule, they'll be ready to join our program and get to work.
Start Training & Putting In The Work
With the preparation for training complete, it's now time to get to work and prepare for competition.
Your child will join our Emerging Athlete Program (EAP) and join up to 14 other junior athletes in our small training squads who want the same thing -- to succeed in sport.
Under the guidance of our expert coaching and rehab staff, they will complete their training program at our state-of-the-art facility. Every week, they'll take a small step forward to improving their athleticism.
Over time, these gains 'aggregate' to the point where they're stronger, faster, fitter and more athletic.
Events that would otherwise injure them, don't.
Events that would otherwise rattle their confidence, don't.
Events that would normally make their head drop, will make them more determined.
With the right preparation, anything in sport is possible.
