Fitness and Sprint Development in Youth Athletes

About this Event

In this session (the second in a series of two) Adam Runacres will share the knowledge surrounding long-term athlete development programs and discuss where sex and maturity fit in to the bigger picture. The talk will focus on aerobic fitness and sprint performance (anaerobic) development and explore time periods where accelerated adaptations to training are evident. The talk will shed new light on how changing physical activity patterns and targeting specific behaviours may influence fitness and enhance performance.
