Advance Youth Strength & Conditioning Platform for Football

Supporting Football Coaches and Players

The youth strength and conditioning platform has been created for football clubs and academies that coach and support large number of youth players.

The Demands of Football

To play football at the highest level requires that each player can meet the demands of the game.  In the professional game, the total distance (km) the payer has covered is often reported.  In elite youth players (relative to position), each player can cover distances of 9 - 12km.  What is not frequently reported are the motor performances that make up that 9 - 12km

  • Jogging 

  • High-speed running 

  • Accelerations (under 10 metres) 

  • Decelerations 

  • A range of jumping actions

  • Cutting and agility strategies 

Through regular strength and conditioning training, this can prepare each player to be sport ready and meet the demands of the game.  By being prepared for their sport, players can play with confidence and express their individual qualities in the game - cutting quicker, getting to the ball first, and making more sprints to influence the game. 


Pathway to Performance

The youth strength and conditioning platform supports the coach through the four areas of youth physical development and sports performance. 

  • Test, track and monitor player's physical development and overall progress

  • A range of strength and conditioning training.  All physical capacities are highly trainable 

  • Monitor and reduce the risk of overtraining, burnout and injury 

  • Sport readiness, freshness, leading to sports performance

Test and Monitor Player Physical Development

It is essential that we monitor the long-term development of our youth players. 

The Youth Strength and Conditioning Platform helps football coaches to track and monitor their players

  • Library of strength and conditioning tests

  • Upload athlete test scores 

  • Analyse test scores for future sessions and athlete development 

  • Support and feedback to players 

  • Create, share, and download athlete reports (individual and teams)

Reduce the Risk of Overuse Injuries in Football

The injury rates in youth players are increasing, with most injuries being classified as overuse or sport-related injuries

A general lack of preparation and high volumes of sports-training (sport practice and competition) can place the youth player at a higher risk of overtraining, feelings of burnout, and sustaining an injury. 

Young players frequently injury their lower extremities, with most player reporting injuries to their shin, ankle, and foot. By introducing strength and conditioning into their long-term development the risk of injuries can be reduced.  For example, a study called the FIFA 11+, introduced strength and conditioning into the warm-ups.  The warm-ups included 

  • Running drills 

  • Plyometric drills 

  • Balance exercises

  • Strength exercises 

By introducing strength and conditioning into their warm-ups, they reduced the risk of injury by 30%. 


Strength, Speed, Agility, & Plyometric Training

The Youth Strength & Conditioning app empowers each youth athlete to regularly perform their strength and conditioning training. 

Strength and conditioning programmes are fully automated to save time.   Each programme consists of a range of exercises, including neuromuscular training.  Athletes can watch the exercise and drills, which demonstrate optimal form and technique. 

Athletes can upload the repetitions, training loads, and effort level, which is synched to the coach’s portal, allowing the coach to analyse training volume and adherence. 

The youth athletes can select from the below training 

Recovery & Wellbeing

The importance of player wellbeing and recovery are essential for the growth and development of each player. 

To reduce the risk of high-volumes of sport training and competition, overtraining, and feelings of burnout, players can track their wellbeing and overall recovery. 

Created for youth players, the youth players complete weekly questionnaires that monitor key areas 

  • Overall fatigue level 

  • Muscle soreness 

  • Energy levels 

  • Motivation 

  • Sleep quality and feelings of freshness 

Improve Sports Performance

All sports have a specific demand.  For players to perform they need to be fully prepared and recovered. 

All aspects of the player's training and recovery - strength and conditioning, sports training, sport competition, and lifestyle factors need to be coached, as they are all linked to sports performance. 

As each player grows and matures, their strength and conditioning training and recovery strategies need to develop with them.  This will give each player every opportunity to perform at the highest level.
