As Athletic Development coaches our target should be crystal clear and we should never take our eye off the target. The target is to prepare the athlete physically to compete without any limitations or restrictions so they can thrive in the competitive environment. That demands a comprehensive approach that addresses all components of physical preparation. Just training strength or speed or any one component is not enough. They must be carefully blended to meet the athletes needs and the demands of the sport. No need to get cute and fancy, stay basic and fundamental. Gradually progress the athlete to improve their physical literacy. Progressive improvement should be expected if you keep you eye on the target.
