Strength and Conditioning and Sports Science

Hunter Sports High School is at the beginning of a new age regarding the student-athlete Strength and Conditioning and Sports Science program. The school now boasts a one of a kind, state-of-the-art Athlete Development Facility incorporating world’s best practice systems and equipment.

Strength and Conditioning training incorporating long-term athletic development is now a widely-accepted form of training for adolescents. Despite previous concerns regarding the safety and effectiveness of youth resistance training, scientific and clinical evidence supports participation in youth resistance training programs that are well designed and properly instructed.

Hunter Sports High’s Strength and Conditioning program aims to develop stronger and more robust youth athletes who will be better prepared to learn complex movements, master sport tactics, and sustain the demands of training and competition. Training prescription is based on an appropriate progression according to training age, motor skill competency, technical proficiency and existing strength levels whilst also taking into consideration the biological age and psychosocial maturity level of the athlete. Students are supervised at all times by our Strength and Conditioning coaches and will never be required to perform exercises outside of their physical competency.

Our Head of Strength and Conditioning/Sports Science Adam Trypas boasts a wealth of knowledge and experience from long term athletic development through to elite professional teams and athletes. His qualifications include a Bachelor of Teaching/Bachelor of PDHPE; Masters in Exercise Science (S&C) and ASCA Coach Accreditation.
