Edge School Skill Academy Grande Prairie is a unique learning community, a place for young people to pursue academic excellence while striving to reach their full athletic and character-building potential. Balancing athletics and academics helps students bring success from one area into another. Through this process of discipline, hard work, success/failure, and time management, students develop their character in positive ways and that is the ultimate goal.

The fundraiser is due to the need to raise funds for new capital projects, on-going programs and enhancements, and financial aid/bursaries. They are committed to a Student Financial Assistant Program that enables young athletes the opportunity to attend regardless of financial restrictions.

On Friday, July 5, 2013 the Edge School Skill Academy Grande Prairie will be hosting its second annual Edge Legacy Fundraising Dinner at the TEC Centre, Evergreen Park. They are very excited to announce that the featured speaker for this year’s event will be

Don Cherry, the colorful host of the “Coach’s Corner” on Hockey Night in Canada and is arguably the most watched personality on television in Canada.

‘Train to Train’ with ASDC NW! http://highperformancesports.ca/news/train-to-train-with-asdc-nw http://highperformancesports.ca/news/train-to-train-with-asdc-nw#comments Mon, 01 Apr 2013 20:51:55 +0000 http://highperformancesports.ca/?p=14729 During the Train to Train stage (females 11-15, males 12-16), young athletes need to build an aerobic base and consolidate …

]]>
During the Train to Train stage (females 11-15, males 12-16), young athletes need to build an aerobic base and consolidate their sport- specific skills. Towards the end of the stage, they need to focus on strength and the anaerobic alactic energy system. Increased training hours are needed at this stage to develop each athlete’s long-term potential.

The ages that define the Train to Train stage are based on the approximate onset and end of the adolescent growth spurt. This period is generally defined as ages 11 to 15 years for females and 12 to 16 years for males.

At this stage, athletes are ready to consolidate their basic sport-specific skills and tactics. It is also a major fitness development stage.

The Train to Train stage makes or breaks the athlete. Athletes may exhibit special talent, play to win, and do their best, but they still need to allocate more time to training skills and physical capacities than competing in formal settings. To maximize their long-term potential, winning should remain a secondary emphasis.

This approach is critical to the long-term development of top performers and lifelong participants.

ASDC NW is proud to team up with Hockey Alberta to offer an Off-Ice Training Program for Bantam and Midget aged Hockey Athletes.

TRAINING: 3x/week; 1.5 hour sessions

DATES: May 13-Aug 23

COST: $600+tax per athlete

GROUP SIZE: Max 10

Registration Online @ Hockey Canada Event Site

 

Purpose: To physically prepare the athletes in the Train to Train stage of the LTAD model by applying developmentally appropriate programing to the off-season. Program open to Male and Female Bantam and Midget Athletes in any category.

Why this Important is? The Train to Train stage is one of the most important times of athletic development; it is when athletes are made, or broken. All too often the foundations of athleticism are neglected in a rush to obtain short-term results through adult-style programs. Ultimately, this reduces long-term performance capacity and increases the risks of injury.

What does a developmentally appropriate program look like? The program targets the specific areas of development in the Train to Train athletes to ensure maximum improvements are made through specifically constructed progressions.  Athletes will be preparing for the Train to Compete stage through a holistic approach that ensures improvement in physical and technical ability.

How do we know we are improving? Progress will be tracked through reports based on regular physiological and skill-based testing at the end of each phase. Regular evaluations allow for further individualized training; improved motivation and accountability; and for use in goal-setting.

Bonus! Train with ASDC Certified Strength & Conditioning Specialist; get a 4 month membership to GPRC facility, and Hockey Alberta Apparel
