As the game progresses through time, so do the demands of the athletes involved. Our Sport Science Program has been developed to assist and guide St. Albert Impact players to achieve maximal potential in an ever-changing game of soccer.
While focusing on the fundamental movement patterns, we are able to introduce certain aspects of strength and conditioning to develop an "all-around" athlete. Some of these aspects include the development of fundamental movements, speed, agility, aerobic endurance, repeated sprint ability, strength, and power.
Through our focus on the above characteristics, St. Albert Impact players will develop a competitive edge among the Edmonton & area soccer Community.

Impact Strength & Conditioning
At the PDC, there are three separate focused strength and conditioning areas;
- Six commercial treadmills, eight spin bikes
- Core area with TRX cables, yoga mats, medicine balls, etc.
- Power area with two smith machines, dumbbell racks, and benches.
As our Sports Performance Enhancement Specialist, Erika Vecchio pushes our teams to the next level. We provide a more affordable strength and conditioning program for our athletes to participate in with their teammates in our own Impact facility.
The idea of the three areas is that each area could hold six players with them rotating to a new area after a set period or amount of exercises in each area.
St. Albert Soccer Association is proud to provide our athletes with the best rehabilitative care in collaboration with MVMT Physio & Chiro. Impact players will have access to a team of highly qualified professionals specializing in a number of different therapeutic options. This includes but is not limited to physiotherapy, athletic therapy, athletic taping, and chiropractic treatment. MVMT also provides our athletes with concussion screening/management and movement screening. All of these factors aid in providing a clinically validated approach to rehabilitation, individually catered to each athlete.
