Sport Specific Training for Racquet Sports

Created by tpaworldwide.com

TPA has joined with CityView Racquet Club to implement Sports Specific Training for racquet sports as the Official fitness program of the CityView Squash Program.

SST involves training inside 4 main areas of physical development. The focus is to improve fitness performance for your individual sport, not to teach your sport. SST is owned and was created by Tim Keller of Tennis Professionals Alliance tpaworldwide.com

It is a system that can be fully modified to meet the needs of a program for individuals and small groups. This training has been taught to high level adults and active professionals.

Its 4 main areas are as follows:

1)  Cardiovascular Endurance/Coordination

2)  Muscle Strength

3)  Muscle Endurance

4) Flexibility

When combined together, in time, this regimen will lead to improved:

1) Balance

2) Explosiveness

3)  Speed

4)  Stamina

Mental focus, discipline and strength are the vital components necessary to achieve your goals.

The outline for the junior academy will be as follows:

Small groups (a maximum 4 participants) will work side by side in a timed rotation of an average of 16 minutes cycles and focus solely on one of the four main areas of development. Within that time only 3 to 4 movements will be shown and while some moments will be intense, alignments and safety will be stressed first. Intensity and dynamic repetition can only increase upon knowing that alignments are correct.

Progress over time is paramount and nothing short of Mental Focus, Effort, Patience and Respect will be expected.
