  • Performance analysis
  • Injury prevention, treatment, reconditioning and return to sport support
  • Design and delivery of strength and conditioning
  • Multi-sport after school activities

Our Expertise

Our team consists of sport scientists, coaching specialists, sports therapists, strength and conditioning coaches, performance analysts and sport psychologists. In this regard we are able to implement best-practice research into our community partners within Yorkshire and beyond. The Academy is based at Haxby Road Sports Park, with many of our services portable to meet the environmental needs of our partners. Using specialist technology at our newly-developed sports facility, we support local clubs, organisations and individuals on an ad-hoc or regular basis through our experts. The Academy also incorporates current York St John University students as part of our ongoing commitment to developing excellent practitioners of the future.
