Research has shown that sporting youth can commence resistance (strength) training in their early teens. Gymnasts are doing body-weight exercises from the age of 6. In Europe and the USA your competitors are getting stronger every day and reducing their risk of injuries through strength programs either home-based or gym-based. But it must be done with perfect technique and the programs must be specific to your sport.
Three Vital Components
There are 3 vital components to the generation of explosive Speed and Acceleration for the sports player. These are in order of importance:

Put simply if you are not strong then you will never be as fast as you can be. Due to demand from sporting teams and individuals, ASSA can now offer cost-effective Strength and Conditioning home and gym-based programs that are specifically designed to complement the sport that the athlete plays.
These are training programs that work with an emphasis on working hard and getting maximum results in the shortest amount of time both in the gym and outside in the park.
It is so important to build upon a foundation of perfect technique, especially when working with youth players with no history of resistance training, prior to adding or increasing the load.
Programs cost $132 and cover 8 or 12 weeks of training based upon the individual’s requirements. They can be updated after a set period of time to ensure maximum benefit for the player.
