Rising Stars Academy

Rising Stars

A development initiative for emerging athletes

What is Rising Stars?

Rising Stars is an athlete development initiative delivered weekly by Coach Smith. Rising Stars focuses on delivering a sound physical preparation programme and a multi event approach to athletes aged 12-15 years old.

Coach Smith spends each 90 minute Rising Stars session introducing:

  • A dynamic warm up focused on movement competency
  • A running component with an acceleration, maximum velocity or jumps focus
  • A long or high jump progression

Athletes progress according to their competency levels often spending at least 6 weeks on each of the progressions shown in the resources.
