Over 400 athletes have taken part in the Athlete Enhancement Program (AEP) since 2008. In the fall of 2018, an expanded model of AEP launched that is more accessible for individual athletes and provides options for teams and coaches.
AEP is an athlete support program of ASDC aimed to provide high-quality sports science support to emerging high-performance athletes in their regions. AEP provides athletes with an opportunity to receive non-technical support to improve their sports performance (strength & conditioning, sports nutrition, mental skills, etc.) and develop foundational building blocks for improved future performance.
AEP training follows the established Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) framework and scientifically-driven performance strategies to guide programming. Utilizing the top sport science professionals in the region, ASDC SW provides athletes with the latest scientifically supported information in a variety of areas of athlete development.
