Basketball Academy Sport Science
The functional screening program has continued in the SSC Basketball Academy with the assistance of our partners at Flinders University. Video sessions were created by the Flinders team, supported by our very own Basketball teacher Mr. Brendan Mann, as Springbank students completed a range of sport science activities to complement their practical application tasks. The Academy focusses on maintaining good mobility and durability to perform at a high standard in the sport of basketball and this can be best observed through the lens of technology to inspect overall performance. The program is designed to assist each student with how their body functions and prepares them to return to play and competition. Exercises have included body weight activities, such as lunges, squats and bridges.
I would like to take this opportunity again to thank the Flinders team for their continued support of the Basketball Academy.
