Body Biomechanics: Strength & Conditioning

Netball requires athletes to have speed, agility and strength in addition to their netball specific skills.

As a club, Sorrento Saints players train once per week in a on-court session; Body Biomechanics are would like to offer a second ‘off-court’ strength and conditioning training session to assist players to build their strength and conditioning as per the demands of the game.

These group-based gym sessions will cater to individual needs within a group setting. The idea behind the Strength & Conditioning program is to support player development, particularly as players transition through to higher levels of Netball, to reach their goals and avoid injuries.

Key Movement Patterns to be learnt include: Push / Pull / Hip Hinge / Squat / Jumping + landing mechanics / Single leg control / game preparation.

Education on: Training + Hydration │ Nutrition + Sleep + Integration with Sporting Skills

Group Numbers – 6 people per group, with a head coach and an assistant.

Time – 45min Duration, with warm up time outside this

Ages – open to all ages (Particularly targeting 11-18years development years)
