It is with great pleasure that the Prairie Wolf Pack announce a new partnership with Peak Power out of Calgary, AB. The announcement comes as a big boost to the Wolf Pack, as the program has been actively sourcing partners who can offer something special to the players.
Peak Power are a full service strength and conditioning outfit who have been working out of Calgary for a number of years. They have provided services to many of the local rugby clubs, varsity athletes, Canadian alpine skiers and a number of other sports. They will offer the Wolf Pack players (from all regions) the guidance and direction for their off field training and conditioning.
Wolf Pack director Ryan Smith had this to say about the partnership - “I had the opportunity to work with Mike and Shawn at Peak Power in the buildup to the RWC 2011 and for me, it was the biggest difference I’ve seen from that part of my training in 9 years with the national team”.
“To be able to partner with Peak for the next couple of years, we are now able to offer our players the same level of expertise, professionalism and high calibre training atmosphere as the rest of the national team players”. Shawn Preston who worked with Ryan for the year prior to the World Cup, had this to say about the deal:
“We are excited to build an ongoing relationship as the official regional provider of Strength and Conditioning services to the Wolf Pack Athletes. After being appointed by Rugby Canada to work personally with Ryan Smith in preparation for the 2011 Rugby World Cup we have taken a greater interest in the development of local and regional Rugby talent. We see the potential for future National team members emerging from this region as a reality, and a goal of ours is to be a part of this. There is no better avenue than to be on the forefront of this process than joining forces with the Prairie Wolf Pack.
Our role is to Train and Educate the Wolf Pack Athletes at practices, training camps, and games. We will also provide high performance training options for the Wolf Pack Athletes to access. Components of our program will encompass Speed Development, Conditioning, Olympic Lifting Instruction, and Strength Programming. The program will be designed to reduce injury and optimally in turn increase on field performance. We want to help maximize every Wolf Pack Athletes’ potential for Performance on the field and to do that we found that we must offer every option of High Performance Training to the Club”.
