Alongside coached Athletic Development sessions, Futures athletes are provided additional support services through online delivery of workshops and talks covering nutrition, psychology, injury prevention, injury management, lifestyle and a range of other topics. This allows us to provide a more holistic athletic development approach.
Athletes can access this support remotely allowing them to develop in their own time away from the university, which is useful with youth athletes busy training, competition and school schedules.
All Futures athletes have access to free “niggle clinic” appointments with our dedicated physiotherapist Jack Selby (pictured). Athletes can book into an initial session and receive advice and minor treatment on injuries. Information is then relayed to the Strength & Conditioning coaches to adapt their programmes to the needs of each individual athlete to ensure they can train around their injuries.
