BRIGHT MINDS // HEALTHY FUTURES
A School Wide Solution to Creating Bright Minds with Healthy Futures
Athletic Thinking is passionate about nurturing talent.
It is what we do best and we don’t think there is any better place to do this than directly with young people in our schools. And where better for young people to learn about sport, healthy living and striving for success than directly from elite sport performance professionals with collectively over 60 years experience.
In sport we are constantly looking for marginal gains. We implement the foundations to create a high performing environment to create a competitive edge over competitors. It is then that the marginal gains can be made. Our Athletic Schools programme will set your school apart from the rest.
Not only do we have unique access to identify and place talented individuals in specific roles in schools, we provide whole school methodology to enhance your schools overall offering.
We have a bespoke school wide approach, tailored to each school, making it inclusive for even the most reluctant student. We understand that what may work for one individual may not work with another. Our programmes are age appropriate and engaging.
“The team at Athletic Thinking started working with me when I was 15 years old. The principles that were part of my programme allowed me to develop my athleticism in a safe and effective way which allowed me to accelerate my ability to play at the highest level. Their professionalism is second to none”

TRACK // RECORD
Our Performance Team have vast experience working within athlete development support programmes and have routinely helped hundreds of young athletes progress and earn professional academy contracts, age group internationals and ultimately achieve full international honours.
Not only do our programmes improve their sports specific skills, they support the whole child. At Athletic Thinking we place our emphasis on the development of personal skill sets for a more rounded approach. We view school education as paramount and is the central pillar from which all our programmes flow. It is so important to work in conjunction with not only the student but also their parents and teachers to cover all the main influential elements in young peoples lives.
In conclusion, Athletic Thinking works on one of our key principles that by improving the individual you improve the team, which subsequently leads to a high performing organisation.

Readiness to Perform
Taking Students from Classroom to Boardroom
The Readiness to Perform programme from Athletic Thinking is based upon real world experiences in the corporate and professional sport environment and sharing the many lessons learnt to help develop future leaders.
A school wide initiative of healthy living
At Athletic Thinking we are passionate about healthy living for all and this is delivered through our Athletic Living programmes. We believe individuals should train with purpose, in a way that is appropriate for them now whilst also guiding them towards a healthier future; so much so that in fact we named one of our packages after it (The Train with Purpose Package).

“These performance coaches are highly skilled professionals and I have directly witnessed the positive impact they individually and collectively bring to environments. I cannot think of any better team to be working directly with schools to get the best out of students and staff and to enhance a school’s wellness and performance offering. A fantastic selection of programmes I would hope to see in all schools. Knowing this experienced team was working with talented individuals would certainly increase appeal”.
