Content Synopsis continued Resistance training for explosive force – (1)Learn the best modes of training to develop explosive force. Learn what equipment can be used in the gym, on the field / court. We will discuss the importance of resistance training to repeat sprint ability and explosive speed. (2) A practical session where the coaches become the athletes and experience techniques and drills presented in the theory presentation. Plyometrics and Core Strength – (1)Learn the science and application of plyometric training. Learn which exercises are appropriate for varying sports and positions and how to implement them safely into a weekly training unit. Learn the importance of the core as a foundation of maximum athletic performance, discover what the ‘new core’ looks like for athletic conditioning and best practice modes of development. (2) A practical session where the coaches become the athletes and experience techniques and drills presented in the theory presentation Content Synopsis continued Multidirectional speed & COD - A practical session where the coaches become the athletes and experience techniques and drills presented in the theory presentation relating to multidirectional and change of direction speed. Creating session plans - Learn how to put together your own speed and agility session plans for beginner, intermediate and advanced players. You will also receive take home examples.
