Child To Champion

Child to Champion Testing Battery | Infographic

Below is an example of our Child to Champion testing battery that all 11-18 year olds are required to perform every three months. Age , through growth rates into jump testing is pretty mandatory but Str based test exercise prescription will vary hugely dependant on what stage of development each child is in with their LTAD – foundation, development or high performance. We will also bolt on clean and snatch variations for those that require it. The importance of it is huge for all involved in our eyes…. The athletes are educated on the reasons behind testing and reminded on the importance of it as an individual measure. It adds confirmation to all ( them, us, parents ) that commitment , attendance and appropriate programming bring improvements to key performance measures necessary. But throughout the entire LTAD journey we never lose sight of the mantra that training is testing and testing is training.
