Peak Centre has been a leader in sport performance and athlete development for more than 25 years. Having started as part of the University of Ottawa, Peak has a unique appreciation of the role that science and academics play in athlete development.
The Peak Centre Academy Sports Program follows the principles of Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD), a Sports Canada sponsored initiative that is designed to help athletes reach their full potential by properly sequencing sport-specific and conditioning activities throughout their development.
The Peak Centre Academy Athletic Program combines sport-specific activities that include on-ice/indoor and outdoor field training, strength and conditioning, field-based athletic development, and unstructured playtime that encourages physical creativity. Based at the Bell SensPlex, we have access to four ice pads, an indoor field house, beach volleyball courts, outdoor fields (soccer, baseball) so there are multiple opportunities for various sports. With the indoor options, there is no training time lost to bad weather.
All our programs are built on a sound scientific foundation using the latest research on young athlete development and performance. Our sports curriculum is flexible to allow for individualization and differentiation based on stage of development and the physical abilities that are optimally trained at each stage of development.
