• Athlete Development

    Helping young athletes, coaches, teachers and parents to be the best they can be

OUR VISION

We want kiwi kids to be the most capable young people in the world when it comes to engaging with physical activity and sports. We want to help develop kids who are robust and resilient, allowing them to avoid injury and make the most of training and games. Who are confident and independent, meaning they’re capable of solving problems and dealing with difficult situations as they arise in any setting. Who are athletic and competent movers, allowing them to be the best they can.

At Athlete Development there are two things that are key to how we approach athlete development.

The first is establishing the fundamentals. It’s only when the basic building blocks are in place that more complex tasks can be mastered.

Secondly, our programmes are founded on a robust evidence base. This allows us to focus on specific areas that will lead to rapid and sustained performance improvements.
