Slam Dunk!

Making Waves – in & out of the Pool!

The truth is that the world of competitive sports is far from static and is constantly changing. Significant change has resulted from recent advances in science and technology. Sport science and medicine play a very important part in the performance of a swimmer. Science can maximize potential and help fine-tune the athlete, making small improvements in the swimmer’s performance, which is often significant as just a few hundredths of a second can decide the result of races. At Fitter Futures Athlete Academy, emerging athletes can access specialised strength and conditioning programs specifically tailored to each athlete. Tiny tweaks to technique can improve flexibility, strength, and efficiency in the water—and result in faster times. We aim to help athletes achieve their personal best while having fun in a safe environment.
