Youth Speed, Power & Strength Programme

We are delighted to announce that we will offer speed, power and strength and conditioning programmes (SPSC) for youth football/soccer players in Waterford starting in July 2022.

Our annual SPSC programme will be led by Director of Training at Motiv8 Fitness, Kevin Barry.

Who is this programme designed for?

The youth speed, power and strength and conditioning programme is designed for youth football players between the ages of 13-16.

Where does training take place?

Training will take place at Motiv8 Fitness, Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre, Cork Rd, Waterford, X91E6PX

When does training take place?

We are offering two four week programmes.

Training will take place from 3:00pm to 4:15pm Mondays & Wednesdays on the following dates:

  • Phase 1: July 4th, 6th, 11th, 13th, 18th, 20th, 25th & 27th
  • Phase 2: August 3rd, 8th, 10th, 15th, 17th, 22nd & 24th

What is the cost of the programme? 

We’re doing all we can to ensure that the Speed, Power & Strength and Conditioning Programme is a viable and affordable option for football players in Waterford. We offer a number of payment plans.

  • Phase 1: Є100
  • Phase 2: Є90
  • Phase 1 & 2 paid together: Є170 (10% discount)

Why should I participate in the Speed, Power & Strength & Conditioning Programme?

We believe there are four distinct elements that lead to player success on the field. These are decision making, tactical awareness, overall football skill and level of physical conditioning.

During the off-season or summer period the biggest gains in these four elements can be made through increasing physical strength and fitness as players seldom train or play together or have an opportunity to increase tactical awareness of the game.

If you suffered from nagging injuries or are recovering an injury this programme is a must. In participating in the SPSC programme you can prepare for your upcoming season and get a head start on your opponents.

How many spaces are available?

We’re not going to pack large groups of youth football players into our gym as this would be doing a disservice. We recognize that this could be the first time that participants train in a gym and we want to ensure we are providing a safe and non-intimidating training atmosphere. Because of this, we have decided to limit our capacity for the Speed, Power & Strength and Conditioning Programme to just 12 individuals per session.
