|The primary purpose of strength and conditioning at Denstone is to enhance health, wellbeing and prevent injury in order to maximise lifestyle and performance. This approach encompasses appropriate aspects of youth physical development in order to enhance lifelong participation in physical activity and sport.
The College’s Athletic Development Department aims to optimise the long term progression of athletes through education, motivation and engendering commitment, and via the Dedicated Athlete Scheme. The programme is holistic in nature and seeks to enhance the psychological well-being of pupils whilst taking into account all the necessary aspects of physical development such as gender, maturation and training age.
