Strength and Conditioning

Strength and Conditioning (S&C) focuses on the physical development of athletes together with injury rehabilitation and prevention in order to improve elite sporting performance. In the Sport Ireland Institute all S&C coaches are Professional Members of the Institute.

S&C coaches work in partnership with the sports coaches and as part of a sport science and medical multidisciplinary team to design S&C programmes tailored to the sport and the athlete’s individual needs.

These programmes focus on the development of a variety of physical capacities, such as strength, speed, plyometric ability, flexibility, power and physical conditioning. The needs of the athlete are targeted through a programme that aims to address the athlete’s weaknesses, develop their strengths and prepare the athlete for optimal sporting performance
