Longitude6 are excited to announce a 3 year partnership with the AFL NAB League Sandringham Dragons to become the official athletic assessment partner and a club sponsor.
Starting in the 2019/20 pre-season, the agreement will give players in both the U16s and U18s teams access to some of the world's leading technology in the assessment of functional and sports specific movement. The aim being to help each individual athlete reduce their risk of injury and reach a higher level of performance.
Powered by Kintetisense, the world’s first patented marker-less motion capture analysis system, players will be given a unique and objective insight into areas such as their range of motion, posture, balance and functional movement.
Individualised and detailed reports will be provided to the players and support staff to inform decisions around return to play, strength and conditioning programs, injury prevention and to highlight high risk movements.
Over the next three years Longitude6 will be working alongside the dedicated and high performing support staff of the Sandringham Dragons including talent management, physical preparation, trainers and medical support.
In the 2018 AFL Draft, the Sandringham Dragons were represented by three of the top seven picks of the first round. The Dragons have a proud history of nurturing high performing athletes and teams including a number of ex-Dragons selected to play in AFL and AFLW teams.
"I would like to thank Mark Wheeler, Talent Manager of the Sandringham Dragons AFL NAB League team, for his vision in the adoption of our sponsorship and services.
It is so exciting for Longitude6 Sport, so early in its venture to have the opportunity to work with such a group as the Sandringham Dragons.
We at Longitude6 Sport are excited and looking forward to contributing to the safe and successful sporting careers of these young men and women in AFL football." - Mark Heaysman, Director, Longitude6
