Radford Athletic Development (RAD) started from humble beginnings, with Chris Radford in a single car garage in 2015 with a vision. To our now awesome team of coaches and High Performance Facility – based in Ballarat, but servicing right across Western Victoria.

 We specialise in optimising human performance.

We offer: Strength & Conditioning, Physiotherapy, Injury Rehabilitation & Dietetics.

Our staff have multiple years of experience in the field and have worked with teams and athletes competing on the international stage right through to local grassroots sport. Helping athletes, of all ages and abilities, to improve their physical performance or recover from an injury.



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. 

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 bringing to Ballarat and 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.
