Sports Science: using sports science analysis, programs are designed and monitored with an understanding of the internal and external effects on the human body during exercise. Training programs are overloaded and progressed depending on the athlete’s training age, sport, and how they are adapting and recovering to the exercise. It is important we monitor the training because if we are not monitoring then we are only guessing!
Athlete Development: is a process of assessing an athlete’s current level of movement & physical ability and fitting a program to their specific needs. It is about placing the athlete at the center and with a long -term view, creating a progression of physical development and leading to increased chance of sports specific excellence.
Coaching: is as much an art as a science; combining different methods of communication and feedback plus designing exercises, drills and games specific to the athlete’s or team’s needs. The focus is on creating the right environment and context for the athletes and therefore maximizing the learning effect.
Education: This is about educating both coaches and athletes. Athletes are educated on the importance of training correctly but also on the other pillars of performance: Mindset, Recovery, Nutrition, Hydration, and Lifestyle. If an athlete understands the benefits of doing something, this will lead to increased motivation. Training will create the stimulus to get fit but it is what you do outside of training will decide what gains you get from the training program. Coach education is provided to enable coaches to choose the right training solutions for their team or athletes to maximize their performance.
