Program design
Psychology course Skill Acquisition + Athlete thresholds = your training plan

Day 1

0900 - 1100: Your training plan is about Skill acquisition

Why have a plan? Why write a program? What is behind my decisions? What are you trying to improve? What are you trying to develop?

Each training session should have a purpose and be a part of something bigger. The start of this seminar is designed to help coaches understand their start point, collect information, assess your clients and find gaps in their skills. At the end of the session you will be able to conduct an interview where by you will be able to assess the skill sets missing from your client. Strength is a skill, lung capacity is a skill, anything that can be learned, taught or developed is a skill.

1115 - 1300 Athlete Types:

Understanding thresholds across all sports and disciplines. What type of athlete are we dealing with? Energy system dominances, strength biases, flexibility issues, how to find the clients threshold for their sport, event or element of fitness. There are typically 3 types of athletes along a threshold continuum. Here we investigate how to evaluate the athlete in their own sport. At the end of the session you will be able to conduct an interview where by you will be able to assess the clients threshold in their sport.
