STRENGTH & CONDITIONING SCREENING
All Players undergo a complete screening of their current physical preparedness, so we can understand if there are any underlying issues and address them early. This includes prehab and rehab work following injury.
This information is shared with your coaching staff so a full strength & conditioning programme can be implemented.
