Academy- Youth Training at Locker 27

Locker 27 is open to all individuals over the age of 9. Whether your child plays competitive sport or you want them to improve their fitness,  anything is possible at Locker 27.

In order to join the Academy sessions we require all 9-16 year olds to complete an Academy Development Course. The Academy Development Course consists of three one to ones with one of our Strength & Conditioning coaches. The cost of the Course is £110 and they’ll also receive a 6 month training diary which they’ll use during their training.

To enquire further and to book your child onto a course please email

Upon graduation your child will be able to attend Academy Training Sessions where our team of coaches will be able to guide them along a LTAD (Long Term Athletic Development) pathway. The cost of the Academy is £28 per month, your child can attend as many Academy sessions as they get to in the month. Or if you’d rather not sign them up to a full membership they can pay £10 to drop into any Academy Training Session providing they’ve completed the Academy Development Course.

Prefer the personal approach? We offer a one-to-one service for juniors who wish to improve their movement or sports skills.

What is LTAD? – It is a progressive pathway for the individual.  Whether continued participation or elite aspirations in the sports arena are the end goal, following a LTAD programme will have great benefits. The process is Athlete centered and coach driven. Athletes who progress through LTAD experience training and competition in programs that consider their biological and training ages in creating periodised plans specific to their development needs.

  • It has been noted that many young athletes lack the basic physical skills to reach their potential (Giles 2005; Balyi 2003).
  • Sport is an amalgamation of complex skills, therefore without the basic movement patterns young players will have a limit to their potential.
  • Young people do not receive the same physical development through ‘active play’ as they did 15 years ago.
  • Sport is constantly developing and players need to be stronger, faster and more robust than ever before.
