Advance Youth Strength & Conditioning Platform for Swimming

Supporting Swimming Coaches and Athletes

The youth strength and conditioning platform has been created for swimming clubs that coach and support large number of youth athletes.


The Demands of Swimming

Swimming is extremely popular both for young males and females.  For the athletes to perform well, they need to cope with the demands of the sport.  Unfortunately, swimming  can lead to high training volumes, which may place the youth athletes at risk of non-functional overtraining, and symptoms of burnout, and injury. 

The athletes need an excellent aerobic/anaerobic capacity, along with other physical qualities to perform at the highest level. These physical qualities include, 

  • High levels of maximal strength 

  • Improvements in relative strength 

  • High average and peak power outputs 

  • Developments in motor skills 

Strength and conditioning is referred to a dry-land training for swimmers.  Through regular strength and conditioning training that incorporates strength training, power and plyometric drills, this will improve overall performance through changes in motor performances in and out of the water

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 & Monitor Athlete Physical Development

It is highly recommended that we monitor the long-term development of our youth athletes. 

The Youth Strength & Conditioning Software helps coaches to track their athletes 

  • Library of strength and conditioning tests 

  • Upload test scores

  • Analyse test scores for future development 

  • Support and feedback to athletes 

  • Create, share, download athlete reports (individual athletes or teams)

Reduce the Risk of Overuse Injuries In Swimmers

The injury rates in youth athletes 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. 

Swimming running can place youth athletes at risk of sustaining an overuse injury due to higher training volumes.  Unfortunately, overuse injuries in youth athlete swimmers are common, with 52% of athletes reporting an overuse injury.  The most frequent body area injured in males and females was the shoulder, followed by the lower back, and lower limb (knee).  

Swimming demands an excellent aerobic/anaerobic base, but considerations are required around training volume.  Incorporating regular strength and conditioning – strength training, power and plyometric drills, this will benefit the athletes, with change in motor performances in the water.  Strength training and improvements in relative strength will also help to reduce the risk of lower limb overuse injuries.  

It is recommended that swimmers perform 

  • Strength training 

  • Power training 

  • Plyometrics drills 

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 Overall Performance

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

All aspects of the athlete'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 athlete 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.
