FOR COACHES OF 12 to 16 YEAR OLDS
WSP identified improving fundamental movement skills as a key area for development. As a result, in 2018 we piloted a Simple Strength and Conditioning Programme for coaches of teenagers to give them practical examples of how to incorporate simple movements and exercise into their coaching session.
During the sessions, the coaches learned how to do warm-ups/cool downs, mobility, drills, prehabilitation, muscle activations, plyometrics. At the end of the three workshops the coaches were able to go back to their clubs and introduce all of this as a circuit for base training/off season or elements of it into every training session.
We are using the following format for delivery:
Explain WHAT and WHY | Demonstrate | Practice as a group with general feedback |Practise in pairs with coach/athlete.
Feedback was excellent with participants saying ‘This is new S +C knowledge for me but it is something that can be coached easily enough to my group.’ and ‘I have learned about what exercise I can do for a warm up in my training session & muscle activation.’
