The Academy of Sport - Football aims to provide a holistic programme that will develop the all-round skills of the student. These will include sport specific skills and those relating to performance culture. These skills are essential if the student is to develop the competencies required to progress through the Westlake sports system and ultimately aspire to their potential.
There are three Academy of Sport sessions within the timetable split between one Strength and Conditioning session and two coach sessions. Throughout there is a strong emphasis on delivering a values-based programme that develops positive underlying behaviours and grows character.
Strength and Conditioning sessions will take place in our purpose-built fitness centre and will primarily focus on fundamental movement skills, conditioning and strength development.
Coach sessions will be delivered by expert coaches and focus on age and stage appropriate sessions in all the technical, tactical, physical and mental components required to develop the fundamental skills necessary for future development.
In summary the programme includes:
One Strength and Conditioning session per cycle
Two Sports specific sessions per cycle
Additional guest speaker workshops as and when required
