Strength & Conditioning

Our players will have access to a bespoke strength and conditioning program designed for each player to maximise their ability and to meet the physical demands required to play as part of the academy.
Teesside University will be providing the support on this aspect of the course and will be delivering strength and conditioning sessions throughout the year, with guidance for players on how they should be looking after themselves away from the game to maintain an appropriate physical condition.
Players will be tested throughout the year to keep track of their physical capabilities and to base their training and work load with this information factored in. These strength and conditioning sessions may take place on the pitch or in a controlled environment, but are separate sessions to the specific football training players will be enjoying and is an extra facet for our academy players.
