Long-Term Athletic Development
The following long-term development scheme was originally designed with young golfers and other athletes in mind. However, regardless of whether you're eight or eighty you can be placed somewhere on the physical development continuum. At each stage appropriate training can be given to the golfer depending on their levels of physical literacy rather than age.
The six key stages are set out below.
All of our services are tailored for you as an individual, so with our 3D analysis and golf-specific screening we can identify which stage you're at and develop a programme that's right for you.
