Armour Combine Testing has been essential part of our program since the beginning as it allows athletes to create realistic goals based on personal results. We have 3 levels of testing to support age groups and athlete ability. Often use Beep Test, Yoyo test, Agility testing for change of direction, Sprints to assess speed and more as they progress through the program.

Often the most effective way the develop learning sport specific skills is to test them in competition. Where possible we often join multiple local tournaments with selected athletes for just that purpose. We also hold regular game play sessions during the program.

Development During Covid

We are working hard ensure our programs remain available during any season. RECON is the program that started IAA off almost 10 years ago when we our founders wanted to make a change in the mental health of young people, the impact of the pandemic on people particularly young people has been large and it is more important than ever to engage our youth and provide tools for life success.

We have designed our timetable to be unstoppable by providing multiple locations and continuing our strong foundation with live online sessions. We encourage all interested to REGISTER as face-to-face sessions may be capped but we will do all we can make room for all.
