Between September and June, Brock Sports Performance has initiated a program designed specifically for surrounding school boards that combines curriculum-based material (i.e. Kinesiology, Physical Education) and exercise to provide Grades 9 to 12 students with an interactive learning experience. Through partnerships with schools and school boards across Southern Ontario, the goal of the program is to promote active lifestyles, kinesiology, and sport performance principles.
Sessions are run in the Brock Sports Performance Centre which contains over 20m of turf, 8 power racks, 2 Keiser machines, and much more. Students get exposed the same sport-science technology and equipment that is used in many high-performance facilities. All sessions are 3 hours in length and consist of one Classroom and two Practical components. Teachers and students can choose from the following topics which encompass all aspects of sports performance training:
Classroom Session Options: Active Anatomy, Nutrition & Recovery, Peak Height Velocity (Growth & Development).
Practical Session Options: Testing & Assessment, Resistance Training Theory, Plyometrics & Agility Training, and Torso Training.
Besides providing curriculum-based learning, the visit onto Brock’s campus and session in the Brock Sports Performance Centre provide first-hand experience of student life in university; a valuable opportunity for students in Grades 11 and 12 as they begin to look toward undergraduate or college programs.
Sessions are lead by Brock Sports Performance coaches and interns which have extensive education and experience in the fields of Kinesiology and Sport Performance. This year we have worked with 10 schools from the Niagara Region. So far, our most popular Practical and Classroom Sessions are: Plyometrics & Agility Training and Active Anatomy!
