At LFA we believe our program is the gold standard in rugby league preparation and is designed specifically for young rugby league players with this in mind.
So what exactly are we looking to develop?
Strength. Power. Speed. Agility. Skill. Cardiovascular fitness and a high degree of mental toughness. That’s what!

At LFA we know exactly how to train young footballers to build speed, power, strength, skill, agility and a hard as nails mindset while also focusing on creating flexibility and mobility to decrease the potential for non-contact injuries.

Combining all of these strategies is essential to spending more time on the field, dominating your opponent, and less time injured or on the bench.
