Wesport Talent Hubs are a Proven Success!
The Wesport Talent Hubs have had their signs of success with a 12% increase in the overall sporting ability of the Talent Hubs Athletes.
The athletes are assessed every 12 weeks against a core group of movements that all sports people should be able to perform competently (Click Here to see these movements). When done correctly they will compliment an athlete’s skill in a sport by allowing them to produce speed and power more efficiently and also contribute to reducing the risk of injury.
Ishan Rawley-Singh who is the Talent Hubs Strength and Conditioning Coach said:
"when you see the group every week it is easy to forget their level of ability when they first arrived. Looking back at the videos it is very apparent that the efforts they have all put in are now paying dividends."
These efforts have rewarded Emily Wright, who is a sprinter at Yate Athletics Club, with a personal best and a silver medal at the Welsh National Championships. She has since featured as a future star for the Dairy Councils ‘Milk It’ campaign.
Applications are open to individuals from all sports and Wesport are now accepting applications for a new intake of sportspeople to commence after half term. Sessions take place at the Univeristy of the West of England on Tuesdays from 6.30-7.30 and at Ashton Park Sports Centre from 6-7pm on Thursdays.
