REVEALING THE SECRETS OF ELITE ATHLETE PREPARATION
Learn how to make your athletes fitter, faster and stronger so they can excel at sport.
What are we known for?
Working with anyone who wants to learn more about the physical training of athletes. That means we educate you on how to make your athletes fitter, faster and stronger so they can excel at sport. Our education is applicable to all sports but we are Industry Leaders in tennis training education and all of our workshops are accredited with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). We work with some of the best athletes in the world and we are delighted to share that experience with you.
Why choose APA?
All of our training methods are based on the latest sport science research but more importantly than that, they are tried and tested on our elite athletes so we know they get results! All of our education is sourced from some of the greatest minds in the areas of physiology, biomechanics, psychology and nutrition. APA Director Daz Drake has spent the last 15 years seeking out the best advice for our athletes so you don’t have to!
What do we offer?
APA Education consists of resources, workshops and even qualifications so you can choose how deep you would like to take your understanding of this area of science. Whilst the industry of sport may seek to categorise us into pros, semi pros, amateurs or volunteer coaches we all share the same passion for improving our athlete’s sports performance. That’s why we at APA believe in education that meets everyone’s needs from blog articles, to 3 hour workshops and all the way to a full qualification in strength & conditioning!
This section will enable you to discover the very latest cutting-edge principles that have shaped the APA training system. The training system is based on six stages across five biomotor abilities. This enables APA coaches to offer a truly world class comprehensive long term athlete development programme for all its athletes.
This section is a great start point for coaches interested in learning more about APA and will form the basis of much of the information shared in the blog, workshops and even the qualification.
Even though we know that our training programmes will take care of the exercise part of the equation we also know this is only one factor that contributes to your athlete’s success. We might only see them for one hour a day, what are they doing for the other 23 hours to improve their athletic performance? Developing the mindset of being a 24 hour athlete and looking after their health, lifestyle and nutrition when they’re not with us is as important if not more important than what they do with us in the gym!
Perhaps you have your sights set on a career in strength & conditioning, or maybe you just have a burning desire to learn more about how to design, deliver and evaluate a safe and effective strength & conditioning programme. In both cases this qualification is for you!
APA are an endorsed centre of 1st4sport qualifications. We run the Level 2 Certificate in Coaching Strength & Conditioning (L2CCSCQ) at least twice a year. Quite simply, it’s the ‘Best Value Strength & Conditioning qualification on the market.’
This 4 day programme is designed to give you ALL the tools required to start training athletes on Monday morning!
