The Sports Academies were established and have been functioning since 2002. Glenwood have invested a great deal of time and money into the Academy. Top coaches and mentors have been recruited to facilitate in the Academy.
Our boys are constantly exposed to top, cutting edge coaching techniques and skills. Glenwood remain leaders in the development of young athletes and the annual High Performance camp that we host during the December holidays bears testimony to that. During the camp we bring in various specialists of different sporting backgrounds to facilitate the boys in both physical as well as physiological preparation of the new season. The camp continues to grow in expertise and we look forward to the next camp in December.
A typical day for an Academy athlete could start as early as 06h00 and finish at 08h30. In that time the players are given individual attention and their skills are refined. After the session each boy will enjoy a Nutritional and Protein shake supplied by Herbalife, a partner of the Sports Academy. This supplement helps the boys recover from their training, assists in energy production and muscle repair. All the ingredients are natural and contain no harmful chemicals. The Sports Academy success is clearly visible in the results that Glenwood High School has obtained in more recent years.
