Peak Performance Program (PPP) – Catherine McAuley College Bendigo

A new and exciting opportunity exclusive for students from Catherine McAuley College Bendigo. Delivered by Healthy Mates Physiotherapy and Performance.

What is the purpose of the program?

The Peak Performance Program is designed to introduce youth participants to “training” in a way that sets the foundation for more advanced training. The program exposes participants to aspects of performance and, through this exposure, develops key motor skills that are required in later stages of training at any level – school sport, community level sport or high-performance sport.

Benefits

We know that with peak periods of growth, come increases in limb length which can result in decrements in motor control performance and decreased coordination. With this, comes reduced neuromuscular control, which can result in increased risk of injury.

Recent trends suggest that junior athletes display substandard levels of movement competency and ability to complete basic movement skills. Earlier interventions will result in better movement mechanics, enhanced force expression and reduced risk of injury.

The program is delivered by Physiotherapists and Exercise Physiologists with many years of experience in elite sport, ensuring that junior athletes have the skills, knowledge and confidence to move competently through all stages of life.   

Content

The Peak Performance Program has been designed utilising research and experience with training youth in athletic settings. The PPP is based on a movement curriculum that adopts and exposes budding athletes to the athletic movement skills competency. These are the foundational movements that underpin all athletic movements. This is not only important in the development of athletic skill and competency but also underpins the development of healthy habits throughout life regardless of athletic/sporting endeavours. It is designed to teach participants critical skills in movement to be confident and competent to move through phases of training.
