In collaboration with Jeremy (Jez) Hickmans we are excited to announce an 8 week Pre-Season Camp for teenagers who are playing any of the football codes (AFL, Rugby Union, Rugby League, Soccer, Touch Football) and teenage girls who are playing netball or basketball.
About Jez Hickmans
Jez is one of Australia’s best high performance strength & conditioning coaches. For many years he was Wayne Bennett’s ‘right hand man’, as the High Performance Manager at the Broncos (and before that Newcastle Knights and St George Illawarra) and still works with the English Rugby League team. Jez has also worked with QAS Netball Squads and is currently the Head S&C Coach for the elite St Peters’ Swimming Team, working with several athletes who will represent Australia at the Olympic Games.
What’s involved in this Pre-Season Camp?
Together, we are offering an 8 week Pre-Season camp designed to help teens achieve optimal fitness and strength during their pre-season so they can start their competition season with a good base of fitness, reducing risk of injury.
The Pre-Season Camp involves strength & conditioning sessions at Fitter Futures (for our STRONG Teens, that means maintaining your current training regime with us), and a 1 hour field session with Jez each week (at Fitter Futures) to work on dynamic field work, speed & agility, acceleration and deceleration. It’s a unique opportunity to work with one of the most knowledgeable coaches in the industry learning how to apply the strength gains and movement patterns you develop in your sessions at Fitter Futures.
There are only 15 places available in each squad.
The cost is $110 per week (pay by weekly direct debit or for 8 weeks upfront). There will be 7 field sessions with Jez over the 8 week period, plus a 1 hour seminar on nutrition and recovery. Field sessions will take place on a Wednesday night (6:15 – 7:15pm for the Football Codes Squad and 5pm – 6pm for the Netball/Basketball Squad).
