About Us

Through our experience working with the Western Bulldogs Football Club (AFL/VFL) and the GWV Rebels Football Club (NAB League) - we have come to realise that having the right people in Regional Victoria to help develop  athletes is crucial!  It is a passion of ours to help regional athletes to properly train and recover, helping them compete at the highest level and to be the best athlete they can. 

The biggest thing that we have noticed, no matter where or at what level of sport you play, “An athletes greatest ability is their availability”………to be out on the park/court…..performing in their chosen sport.

Some of the major issues impacting their availability to compete are:

  • Athletes are not conditioning themselves properly and not completing strength training. If they are completing some strength training, it is not individualised, and is based on a body building mind-set, not athletic performance. There is a big difference.
  • Athletes who suffer a significant injury playing their chosen sport – don’t complete their rehabilitation properly and then either never return to that sport, or they return, but can’t play at the same standard or level anymore.

The team at RAD are now bringing to Regional Victoria the same methods and structures used at the professional level to enhance your athletic performance and keep you injury free and available for your sport.

Mobility is a key component to a well rounded program - making sure that we address any postural issues and make it easier for the body to get into the positions required during sport.

This simple thoracic mobility drill is a great exercise that can be used to open up through the upper/middle back as well as the hips.

Starting on all fours in a kneeling position, sink back into your hips, then one hand behind your head, drop elbow to opposite hand, then open up towards the sky, breathe out as opening up to the sky. Aim for 4 reps each side.

Great addition to your warm up!

Great exercise Chris Radford! It’s far too often that athletes and people lack thoracic mobility and as you know it is vital for effective kinetic chain linking. It is also important to consider why an area is how it is. Why is it stiff or tight?

I know that girl.

Running mechanics / Mastering the wall March - some coaching wisdom here from Andy Barnett.

It is really important to get the feel for the correct positions we want in an acceleration - wall March drills do this really well.

The key things to think about:
* Forward lean into the wall
* Straight line from head to toe
* positive shin angle mirror the angle of the rest of the body
* Put force down through the floor

Nail this position and then work on it when moving into accelerations drills.

Sled rotation:

Strength through rotational movements is crucial for athletes that are involved in contact sports. Being able to produce force and transfer that force from your feet up through your trunk and then out onto an object.

This is one exercise that you can use to develop that rotational strength - Set up in base position, keeping arms relatively straight, the aim is to move the sled around your body. Try and move the sled fast but controlled.
Aim for 2 sets of 5 each side.

RAD - based in Ballarat but operating right across Western Victoria.

We are aiming to provide country athletes with the same coaching services as what is typically only seen in big metropolitan areas.

Last week we had Will working in Hamilton with the South West Academy of Sport athletes and then Tim was in Horsham taking the Horsham Saints netballers through a session.
