Alberta Sport Development Centre Southwest (ASDC SW) continues to provide programs and resources for athletes during the COVID-19 pandemic.
ASDC SW launched the VOLT@Home app in early May for athletes to train at home. The coaches at the High Performance Training Centre at the University of Lethbridge customize each eight-week training program based on an athlete’s sport, previous training experience, goals and equipment available at home. The Volt app guides the athlete through the workout with video examples of each exercise, and coaches can monitor and provide feedback.
Included with the VOLT@Home is access to the Gatorade Sports Science Institute (GSSI) resources. GSSI has been a leader in sport science research and athlete education since 1985.
ASDC SW Athlete Enhancement Team is ready to provide sports organizations, groups and individual athletes with sports science sessions through video conferencing. Mental Performance Consultant Joshua Hoetmer, MA, CSPA and registered dietician Lindsey DeBoer have recently worked with Alberta Amateur Baseball Council and Alberta Gymnastics Federation and are ready to assist athletes to prepare to return to competition after restrictions have been lifted.
The Canadian Sport Institute Pacific Speaker on Demand series offers certificate programs, presentations, mini-series and podcasts open to the public at no cost. Coaches, athletes and parents can access information and know-how from world-leading sport performance professionals and athletes who have reached the highest levels of sport.
ASDC SW will continue to support athletes, coaches and parents during this uncertain time. For more information on VOLT@Home and our sports science services, visit asdcsw.ca.
