24/7 facility

EJC academy was established in January 2018 by Jason Hook, High performance manager. Jason wanted to bring a holistic approach to an athlete training centre by integrating skill base training, strength and conditioning, sports recovery and nutrition programs. EJC ACADEMY is the first academy available to junior athletes with all four training facets included.

 

In 2019, Jason opened the first EJC centre in Cranbourne Victoria with great success. Memberships and programs sold out within 3 months which motivated the venue to become a limited membership 24/7 access to both families and athletes. In 2020 the EJC ACADEMY franchise model was released.

EJC has 9 venues planned for Victoria with Dandenong, Pakenham & Oakleigh coming by the end of 2020 and interstate planning for QLD & NSW is already underway.

EJC has also designed interstate and international tours for junior and senior athletes with strong connections throughout South East Asia and America building strong connections for college profiles.

Stay tuned to our newsletter with up to date news on EJC growth plus updates on our current division 1 college athletes.
