The Athlete Development Program delivered by Flinders University Sport and Fitness is a sports training and athletic support program aimed to assist students in the pursuit of sporting and academic excellence.
The Athlete Development Program aims to benefit students through unprecedented access to high level facilities and training environments with the support of our highly qualified staff. Our strength and conditioning team can tailor their support to work with your current program and sporting coaches, or develop a program to suit your needs.
In 2021 the athletes in the ADP program that were participants in the coached strength and conditioning sessions improved their overall strength by an average of 31%. This allowed them to increase their speed, power, strength & endurance in their chosen sports. As well as strength development the ADP tailors it’s approach to increase all attributes that will allow the athlete to succeed in their chosen sport.
