LeAF Studio sports science coaches support our athletes and performers through their educational development by delivering services which enable the students to optimise their training schedule whilst developing their physical capabilities. The role of the department is more than just lifting weights, we currently look to support the athlete through:
- Growth and Maturation
- Biomechanical and movement function analysis
- Injury Prevention and treatment of injuries
- Overcoming Psychological Barriers
Through these support mechanisms the athletes and performers are able to gain access to our 3x Olympic platform gym, 2 x Wattbike, testing equipment including speed gates, force platform and body composition.Students will be also given guidance on psychological factors through workshops, and have discounted access to physiotherapy providers with our local partners.
These facilities enable us to put our athletes and performers at the centre of their physical development, with each student receiving support with tailored gym, movement and injury prevention programmes.
