This class is designed to teach the therapist, trainer, coach and athlete how to capitalize on both deep and shallow water. Includes samples of hard-core aquatic training regimes for the uninjured athlete, active recovery drills, and post-injury rehab protocols. Appropriate for therapists and trainers working with individual sport athletes (such as triathletes or marathoners) and those working with team sports (such as football or volleyball). Includes instruction in the following hands-on aquatic techniques: shallow water plyometrics, deep and shallow running drills, agility drills, vertical acceleration training, edema control and management, and more.

About ATU Training

 

 

 

  • Our classes are taught by board-certified therapists and clinicians with Masters degrees and above who have extensive aquatic experience. Our instructors will teach you the essentials you need to know in order to get you started with your aquatic therapy career.
     
  • Our teaching style is entirely hands-on and personal. You will first be introduced to new concepts and techniques during classroom lectures after which you will transition into the pool to tactilly apply what you have learned. Classes are capped at 25-30 students to insure all attendees receive the one-on-one personalized attention we are known for.
     
  • ATU classes take place in warm-water pools that are 88-93 degrees F.
     
  • Because learning is a continual process, all students will go home with a class manual that reinforces the concepts covered in class. They also get a free 1-year membership to Aquatic Resources Network's online research, support forums and equipment discounts.
