A functional fitness and strength and conditioning program specifically designed for kids aged 9-12 years. (Sometimes younger or older kids depending on their capability and maturity)

A youth program specifically designed for ages 9 – 12’ish’ years (sometimes younger or older kids depending on their capability and maturity). Our 45 minute classes will build upon their physical abilities to promote healthy growth and development to improve the athleticism of every child, no matter their ability level.  The program incorporates functional movement using good mechanics, to build strong bones and muscles while improving balance, mobility, coordination, agility, core strength, cardio fitness and endurance.  We are also focused on improving their self-confidence, self-esteem and resilience which is much needed at this vulnerable age. Establishing healthy habits early on can help form a lifelong healthy connection to physical activity.

Stretching-Mobility-Skills (SMS) Sessions

We encourage our Tweens and Teens to attend these 15 minute SMS sessions (scheduled directly before or after the Teens class). The SMS session led by our coaches shows Tweens how to stretch and mobilise their bodies, and establishes a healthy habit of incorporating stretching and mobility into their exercise routine. This 15 minute session is perfect for our Tweens or Teens and they are included in our Youth Memberships. Please just ensure you book into them. 

Learn to Lift Classes

Our Learn to Lift program is a great introduction for older Tweens and Teens who are just starting to explore resistance training including with weights and equipment, and/or training in a gym environment.  If your kids or teens have access to a gym (whether it be at home or at school), we highly recommend this program to ensure they learn how to lift ‘the right way’ and to keep them safe.

STRONG Tweens Classes

STRONG Tweens (9-12 yrs) is an advanced class for kids who have experience in our Tweens program and have demonstrated competency and consistency in safe movement patterns.  In this class the emphasis is on training good motor patterns through neurological adaptation.  We teach the foundational lifts that are trained in our STRONG Teens program with accessory movements.  STRONG Tweens sessions also include a conditioning component to help develop strength endurance, and provide opportunities to express their strength in other ways.

STRONG Tweens learn using body weight and light weight (sometimes just a broomstick), with small incremental increases in load when athletes are executing proper mechanics consistently over time.

In STRONG Tweens athletes quickly learn that they must ‘earn the right’ to progress in load (and even then, we always take ‘small steps’).  Our objective is to lay the foundations that young athletes will need to explore load and intensity as their bodies mature and develop.

This is a great on-ramp program for more advanced Tween athletes who are already showing an interest in strength training, like our STRONG Teens class.  Strong Tweens must attend 2 STRONG Tweens sessions per week, and are encouraged to continue to participate in Tween sessions also if their schedule allows it.

Please contact us if you would like more information about this program.
