Junior Athlete Performance Training - Who should train
The RSX program at PhysiCore accepts juniors between the ages of 10 and 18 years old. As part of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), we train juniors with three different focuses:
1: Those in Early Specialization sports – where juniors must excel at an early age to compete at a high level. Examples include gymnastics, dance (ballet, jazz, etc) and swimming.
2: Those in Late Specialization sports – where most athletes spend more than 10 years honing skills before reaching for the highest level:
- Track and Field Events (Sprints, Throws and Jumps)
3: Those in Rotational Sports – where at any age and at any level, the athlete must have the ability to stabilize the core for the ballistic forces required to generate power and distance:
- Field and Ice Hockey
- Martial Arts
The PhysiCore RSX program strives to implement LTAD training with a focus towards developmental age, versus chronological age. By developmental age, we mean the degree of physical, mental, cognitive and emotional maturity of a junior, which cannot be measured with a calendar. We can observe skeletal development, growth velocity, functional movement patters, fundamental movement skills and sport skills assessments.
