Player Assessment and Feedback
Our Sports Therapist role is to provide medical screenings to the players. This involves tests assessing posture, joint direction, flexibility, dynamic movement, explosive strength and other components of fitness.
- Our model allows young players to partake in a series of screenings that involves pre-hab assessments.
- Long term development of footballers needs to consider in detail the way children move, range of flexibility and the motor mechanics that may later prevent children from fulfilling their potential in the game they love.
- At Ultimate Football Academy the screenings are fun, interactive and educational. Children are shown the importance of flexibility and taught how they move actually plays a significant part in them becoming elite players through maturation.
- The assessments are always recorded in the personalised player diaries, that allows children to reflect and monitor their individual progress through the programme.
