The Alberta Sport Development Center-South West (ASDC SW) provides improved sport experiences for regional athletes, coaches, parents, officials and support administration. The fundamental idea is that by designing sport science initiatives and coach development programs, the common good of all regional sport will be better served and result in improved emerging athlete development in Southwest Alberta.
Our mission is to provide integrated programming aimed at identifying, supporting, and developing emerging athletes at all levels throughout Alberta's southwest region.
Our vision is to create a fully integrated sport environment that advances the success of our regional athletes at both the provincial and national level.
How Can ASDC Help Athletes?
Nutrition is a major part of an athlete's life and is important in optimizing performance.
Mental Training educates and provides various psychological skills and strategies for improving training, practice, competition, and even daily life.
If an athlete doesn't have good dynamic visual skills like depth perception, peripheral awareness, and an ability to track moving objects the chances are,they are not playing to their full ability.
Determining an athlete's performance profile is essential to building, monitoring, and evaluating training programs at all levels of sport.
