High Performance Training
This is a full day course based at St George's School and Oriam, Scotland's national sports centre.
Have you ever wondered how it feels to train like a professional athlete or, how to design a training programmes that would lead to a Gold medal at the next Commonwealth or Olympic Games? Well this summer you can!! For one week in July you can experience the training that elite athletes receive every day at Oriam: Scotland’s sports performance centre.
Oriam was designed and built for Scotland’s high performance athletes and is not normally open to the public, until now! This programme will give your child the chance to learn how to train, prepare and eat like an elite level athlete before putting their new skills into practise at the nations centre of excellent for sport where they will train in the gym used by the SRU before the 6 nations and recover in the pool used by our national football team.
Over the course of the week you will undergo fitness testing, perform high intensity interval training, learn about the diet and nutrition habits of elite level athletes, gain experience in strength training and at the end of the week recover in the hydropool before experiencing the infamous ‘ice bath’. Not only will you learn how to train like the professionals but you will learn the science behind how training programmes are designed from coaches working across a range of Commonwealth and Professional sports. By the end of the week you will know what it takes to follow in the footsteps of your favourite athlete by making training a part of your daily routine.
Those attending will work with experienced and qualified sport scientists with experience of readying young athletes for national and international competition across a range of sports. Price includes transport to Oriam and full access to the facilities on the last day of the camp. Due to the large amount of professional sportspeople at Oriam, it is hoped that participants may also get the chance to meet some of them and ask questions as well as get autographs.
Places are limited and participants must have no injuries at the time of the course.
