MATS Training Academy - Junior, Development, Performance


Our programme's aim to follow the Sport New Zealand's Physical Literacy approach

JUNIOR ACADEMY - Year 3 - Year 6 School Age

This programme is designed for kids of all abilities who are looking for help to run jump or throw faster longer and further and considered the basis for many sports. The aim is support kids in a fun and engaging way which makes kids more skillful and enjoying sport.  Days and times vary, just give us a call to discuss.


Building from the Junior Academy, we aim to use what we have learned and take it to greater levels.  We have targeted this programme to maximise the time in ones life where we can get significant gains in sporting development plus those older athletes who want to turn up and enjoy some great training. Our specialties include Power Development, Endurance, straight line or multi directional Speed, Event Specific Strength for most situations. All you have to invest is time and be goal and outcome driven. We will also provide several lectures and sports testing during the year to support your development. There will be 5 sessions available to attend each week.


Lets take a step up from the Development Academy and look to plan what you are going to do to make you the best sports person you can be.  If we plan, we have a greater chance of success (i.e. the odds go up).  We use methods developed by High Performance Sport NZ and we aim to individualise your training so that you get the best you can as a result of what you do. There will be the opportunity to do 6 or more sessions each week.
