Marist College - Ashgrove is the flag ship school for Acceleration. The program was established in February 2001 through the vision of both Stewart Briggs from Acceleration and Brendan Kiernan - Director of Sport for Marist College.
The facilities at Marist College are first class. Upstairs on the mezzanine the athletes warm up and increase their stability. In the weight room the athletes develop their strength and power with body weight, dumbbell and barbell exercises. The program includes flexibility, core activation, stability, power and strength exercises to better prepare the student/athletes for their present and future sporting competitions. The young men at Marist College - Ashgrove have an excellent facility which lends itself to this type of holistic, enthusiastic and challenging program.
Another feature included in our program is Squad Specific Performance Testing. This testing measures things such as flexibility, power, and strength. Acceleration has developed a database software which will e-mail the participant and his parents/guardian with the login details to view the results so that you and your family can see the improvements made in those areas.
